Nice job completing your Auto Editor program!

You can use this tool you created to check for overused words and phrases in any piece of writing.

In this activity, you added more functionality to a program you made.

Your Auto Editor already found several writing errors and highlighted them, and it performed these tasks more quickly and more accurately than you could on your own.

As a final touch, you added code that highlights each word in a different, random color.

This makes those mistakes easier to see, so you can fix them.

You also found a bug in your code and experimented with different ways to fix it.

You discovered that when it comes to programming, there are often several solutions to a problem.

It is up to you to figure out one that works best.

Once you create a program, you do not have to stop there.

You can change it, refine it, and add to it to make it perform more tasks, or to make it easier to use.

There is a whole community of programming enthusiasts of all levels on the Internet, ready to help you take your programs and your coding knowledge to the next level.

You tapped into that community in this activity when you searched for code that generates random colors and copied it into your Auto Editor program.

When you get stuck while making a program or if you have an idea for functionality you would like to create but have no idea how to code, the internet is the perfect place to start.

You may even decide to share code you build so others can use it!

Just be sure to give credit whenever you include someone else’s work in a program.

That is being a good online citizen, and part of what makes programming more collaborative, supportive, and fun.

Have a blast creating and coding!
