What will I learn?

Python is an increasingly-popular object-oriented, high-level, general-purpose programming language, developed by Guido van Rossum (a highly-respected Dutch programmer). Like JavaScript, Python is an interpreted language; however, whereas the JavaScript interpreter is built-in to a web browser, Python has its own interpreter, which must be installed on the host PC or e Python interpreter and extensive library are available completely free of charge for all major platforms, and can be freely distributed. Also, Python's easy-to-learn syntax facilitates high-readability, reducing the cost of program maintenance, and supports modules and packages, which encourages modularity and code reuse.Although Python’s clear and simple syntax makes it the perfect beginners’ language, it has all of the power and flexibility of a complex object-oriented programming language. Using the proven learn-by-example technique, we take you step-by-step through the Python language by introducing you to a number of interesting games, starting with simple games, such as the "guess the number” and hangman games, building on your knowledge progressively to produce more complicated games, like the hungry caterpillar game, and cumulating with the exciting and sophisticated Meteor Mayhem game, which includes brilliant graphics, theme music, sound effects, and great animation.

Python is an ideal platform for games development and, throughout this course, wherever possible, we demonstrate key Python concepts with simple (and not-so-simple) games, which allows us to have some fun while we learn!
