I listened to this while I did the dishes and it was useful. I would like to learn how to do fancy google style docstrings some day. maybe that is what @prerit has in mind.

Thank you for a good course.

Awesome video! I use comments quite often, possibly overuse them. Watching this helped me learn when and where to use then.

I really like the suggestion of using multiline # commments for algorithm development.

Thanks for this comment course!

amicablezebra on April 15, 2020

This was way too basic. A bit of a disappointment to be honest.

Alan ODannel on July 15, 2020

Good refresher. Nice common sense practices. Enjoyed the Best practices and tips.

Thank You!

Great tips on outlining and when to use multi-string comments! Thanks!

Evgeniy Leybovich on Oct. 12, 2022

This is too basic course. No best practices on using tags # TODO:, how to describe Arguments and Returns, etc.

Martin Breuss RP Team on Oct. 13, 2022

Hi all, this course is meant as a beginner course (tagged as “basics”). If you want to dive deeper into commenting and especially documenting your code, then you can check out these resources tagged as “intermediate”:
