Many of our members will be enjoying a hard-earned long break this weekend, because of the Easter celebrations around the world. If you’d like to get ahead with planning future Easters, build an Easter calculator!
Python date.time and functions practice
Practise working with datetime and defining functions. The code uses Carl Friedrich Gauss’s algorithm to calculate when the Easter weekend will fall in traditional western and orthodox calendars. Find the Python code here https://app.datacamp.com/workspace/w/aa977c69-a58f-4029-8f94-945ed0baa5e4/edit.
You can also build a visualization to compare western and orthodox Easter periods.
Remember if you want to run the visualisation, you may also need to install plotly. If you’re working on Anaconda you can use:
conda install -c plotly plotly
Anaconda will be able to search their records to find the library for you.
