Programming Computer Games with Python
Have fun learning how to program games using Python, a popular computer language. During this two-day practical, "hands-on" workshop, you'll learn the basics of programming in Python together with simple game design. Regardless of whether you have any programming experience, you'll have fun learning a lifelong skill that you can use to create computer games and puzzles.
Dates: The workshop will be held over the course of two Saturday mornings. During the first Saturday morning, we'll learn basic Python and create a simple game. During the second Saturday morning, we'll create a more complex game. There will be some homework to complete between the first Saturday and the second Saturday.
