Pixelheads: Getting started with Python
Have you mastered Scratch and don't know what to do next?
Join us for an introduction to Python, a 3 hour workshop dedicated to getting you to grips with starting to use a Text-based programming language.
Python is a popular and widely used language that emphasises code readability.
This introductory session goes over the basics of the language, and is perfect for those wanting to start their programming journey.
During the session we will start creating our own Choose Your Own Adventure Games using the Python IDLE. No previous programming knowledge is needed, just ideas and enthusiasm! We will also start looking at PyGame, a fantastic library that allows you to develop graphical videogames.
We have a laptop available for each participant, but if you want to bring your own, please make sure you have downloaded Python before you arrive (It is free!). We keep our class sizes small, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
