An introduction to PyGame for Absolute Beginners

The 1980's saw the birth of the home computer and with it came an explosion of creativity as bedroom coders put their imagination onto TV screens in the form of computer games.

Almost 40 years later, with Raspberry Pi and the rising popularity of Python there's never been a better time to learn and enjoy the creative process of making a game ... just like the "good old days".

Join Gareth Owen for a workshop where we take a light hearted look at the basics of making a game, how to get setup with Python and PyGame and hopefully have time to code a simple game using Python.

Absolute beginners are welcome as no experience is required, however, if you do have any programming experience please come along and help the ones that don't. Young people also welcome with a parent or guardian.

Things you'll need:

* A Windows, macOS or Linux Laptop

Things that will save time:

* Download Python 3 - https://www.python.org/downloads/
* Download PyGame - https://www.pygame.org/wiki/GettingStarted
* Download Workshop Zip File - http://www.onyxbox.co.uk/pygame/

Cyflwyniad i PyGame ar gyfer Dechreuwyr

Yn yr 1980au gwelwyd genedigaeth y cyfrifiadur cartref a chyda hynny daeth ffrwydrad o greadigrwydd wrth i godwyr ystafell wely roi eu dychymyg ar sgriniau teledu ar ffurf gemau cyfrifiadur.

Bron i 40 mlynedd yn ddiweddarach, gyda Raspberry Pi a phoblogrwydd cynyddol Python ni fu erioed amser gwell i ddysgu a mwynhau'r broses greadigol o wneud gêm ... yn union fel yr "hen ddyddiau da".

Ymunwch â Gareth Owen ar gyfer gweithdy lle rydyn ni'n edrych yn ysgafn ar hanfodion gwneud gêm, sut i gael setup gyda Python a PyGame a gobeithio cael amser i godio gêm syml gan ddefnyddio Python.

Mae croeso i ddechreuwyr llwyr gan nad oes angen profiad, fodd bynnag, os oes gennych unrhyw brofiad rhaglennu dewch draw i helpu'r rhai nad oes ganddyn nhw. Mae croeso i bobl ifanc hefyd gyda rhiant neu warcheidwad.

Pethau y bydd eu hangen arnoch chi:

* Gliniadur Windows, macOS neu Linux
