Get back to simpler code? #49

At last debriefing session someone mention that

defensive programming lesson as written takes a big leap from the previous lessons; the normalize_rectangle and range_overlap code would be tough for beginners to jump into. Maybe instead of starting with that tough new code we could throw some "assert" commands into their run_analysis function (for the inflammation data) to make sure the loaded datasets have the correct number of lines.


lesson going back to simpler code (maybe the temperature functions) would be helpful.

Thanks, @r-gaia-cs

I raised an issue about this in the Python lesson repo a while ago: swcarpentry/python-novice-inflammation#134

It's good to know that other instructors feel the same way. Happy to implement this for the MATLAB lessons. Thanks!

I think this is a good idea, but I'm not sure what sort of example we might use instead. Any ideas? If possible it would be good to link back to the inflammation narrative.
