Course Description:

People love video games. Some people end up wanting to build them, but are not quite sure where to start!

We will start with an exploration of a programming language through building basic game mechanics. Later, we will focus on coding best practices and work toward a higher-level approach through advanced code organization, good debugging habits, and breaking code into simple and meaningful chunks.

This course is geared toward beginners with very little knowledge of programming, or intermediate students who already have a basic understanding of programming concepts (equivalent to a one-year high school object-oriented programming class). The only main requirement is a passion for video games!
