Just looking for some general advice for pset6 similarities more.

I went for more (rather than less) as I have had some experience with python and dynamic programming prior to CS50.

However I have no experience with html, css or flask so am finding the application segment of the problem very challenging.

My question is, does check50 actually check application section of the problem? When I run check50 after completing helpers.c my solution passes all the test cases.

If so I might move on to more rudimentary html and come back to this at a later date.


  • The next two exercises will also use html, css and flask. Plus a lot more ... So I think you'ld better try to get the html correct in this exercise. (You might consider doing the less first, and finish the more after that. I also did it that way - made it easier for me to learn the html part, and gave me an extra html-exercise ... That helped me a lot for pset7 and pset8, so I could concentrate on all the new stuff) – Peter Pesch Oct 25 '18 at 18:09
  • Perfect, thanks for the advice. I'll go back to less and come forward to more. – Iain MacCormick Oct 26 '18 at 9:04
