GameDev is not just a trendy tag created to describe one of the spheres of using programming languages. Game development is a deep and eventful world in which both the teenagers that just started to learn coding and created their first games, and industry titans who earn millions of dollars in business that brings not only income but also aesthetic pleasure feel equally comfortable. The origins of many large game startups founded in amateur graphics and game programming.
One of the most convenient and popular development languages is Python. The speed and simplicity of creating programs on it earned him a reliable reputation in various fields. Python runs YouTube’s video sharing service, Dropbox client and server software, Intel, Hewlett-Packard and IBM use Python for hardware testing. Industrial Light & Magic, Pixar and other companies use Python in production of animated films. Python has a high role in the Netflix and Yelp software infrastructures, NASA uses Python to solve scientific programming problems, and even the US National Security Agency uses Python to encrypt and analyze intelligence information.
The standard implementation of the Python language is written in C. Python can be compiled and launched on almost any platform: from computers and game consoles to digital assistants and major supercomputers, making Python one of the most relevant cross-platform programming languages.
Programming games and creating multimedia content are things that Python is great for. In addition to many projects from independent developers, cult games were written on Python. The grandiose space simulator EVE Online from the Icelandic company CCP Games, which is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game, widely uses Python. In the equally legendary Civilization IV, custom scripted events are written entirely on Python.
Teen age from 10 to 14 is the right time to start programming on Python. Game development, as a learning tool, is the most convenient format for mastering the language. In the lessons, students of the course will:
Please be sure your computer is suitable for the course. You can find our recommendations here.
During the training process we evaluate the practical side (how to do it?) and understanding the topics as well (why and what for?)
Students demonstrate knowledge by solving tasks in their own way, explaining the algorithms in own words, helping other students to correct mistakes and creating presentations on the final course project.
