So I recently enrolled for a course from Coursera.org on Introduction to Interactive Python, After I received a certificate on Introduction to Python programming instructed by Prof. Charles Severance. https://www.coursera.org/course/pythonlearn
My first mini-project is a simple Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock game.

# Mini-project #1 - "Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock game"

# Rock-paper-scissors is a surprisingly popular game that many people play seriously
# Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock (RPSLS) is a variant of Rock-paper-scissors that allows -
# five choices. Each choice wins against two other choices, loses against two other choices -
# and ties against itself. Much of RPSLS's popularity is that it has been featured in 3 episodes -
# of the TV series "The Big Bang Theory".
# The Wikipedia entry for RPSLS gives the complete description of the details of the game.
