For this meetup, we're pleased to announce a collaboration with Code Ninjas of Ashburn! They've graciously let us start using their facilities for our meetups, which we're going to start doing with our meetup in April. You can find out more about Code Ninjas at https://www.codeninjas.com/locations/va-ashburn
For this meetup, there are 3 potential things we may cover (depending on who attends and where your children are skillwise):
- Covering what we did for our first Python + Pygame meetup (may still be good review for some who have attended for a while).
- Working on enemy movement in a standalone program (for those who missed last meetup).
- Integrating enemy movement into our main game (for those who made it to the last meetup).
As a reminder, resources (including videos, handouts, and code for previous meetups) can be found at http://jacobpike.com/pythonprogrammingforkids/
You can use any laptop with Python 3 (https://python.org), but you'll also need the PyGame library installed separately (https://www.pygame.org/wiki/GettingStarted). We may some have spare computers if you'd like to just check it out, but bringing your own laptop is recommended to provide an easier way for your children to continue practicing at home.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
