Local Python Practice

Now that we've left the fun environment of Trinket.io, let's first build a practice project.

Now let's go to VS Code and clone your forked repo.

The URL we need is: https://github.com/YOUR-USERNAME/TurtleChase

Now let's add some new features together:

  1. Add a button to change each player's color

  2. Prevent players from traveling off the screen

  3. Detect collision of players

  4. Wire up some other SuperTurtle methods...?

Now let's commit and push our code.
