Thank you for helping your fellow learners by answering their questions about programming. Here are some tips:
- When possible, guide them to use the documentation (in the documentation tab - see screenshot). If their question could have been answered by consulting the documentation, then we want to make sure that's the first thing they try next time they have a question. For example, you can say: You can find your answer by looking at the documentation and clicking on the square command.
- If they are wondering how to do something and you create a program to show them, please comment that program heavily, so that they can actually understand it. Or, make the program only do 90% of what they want, and encourage them to take it 100% of the way.
Got other tips to add to this? Let us know!
