Well this has been a very interesting series thus far.

I could recommend a few things which were good learning exercises for me early on:

  • Write a program to sort files within a folder by their extension

    • Later make it sort them in logical folders ex: .txt in Documents, .jpg in Images etc...
  • Write a batch picture downloader. Easily done against an api such as Reddit, for example, to collect all images in a page and save them somewhere.

    • Bonus points if you can get them to sort using the previous program!

Well this has been a very interesting series thus far.

Thanks! I certainly hope so!

I really like both of your ideas, I think I may have to see about implementing the first one at some point in the next couple of days. Would be good practice.
