Conclusion for Your First Python Program

Ending comments for FizzBuzz.

FizzBuzz is a common interview technique to get a sniff-test of the candidate: can this candidate actually write code in the desired language? Despite being such a relatively straightforward task, there are many different ways to accomplish this result. For example, you could have used a while loop instead of a for loop.

There are several different variations of the FizzBuzz task, but they all answer the same questions: does the person have an understanding of if statements, control sequences (for and while loops), integer division (or modulus operator), and the logical sequence of commands? FizzBuzz is also a good way to show the basic syntax and structure of a programming language. Now that you have FizzBuzz down, you can move onto more complicated programming structures.
