This is a four-part series held on April 18th, 20th, 25th & 27th. Computer programming is neat, but what can you actually do with it today? Drawing an interactive 2D game is a good way to see understandable and interesting results, and these days it's easier than ever. We'll use PixiJS to build a complete engine for a 2D platformer game, along the way learning programming concepts.
Session 1: Drawing on the canvas and handling input controls
Session 2: Managing the game state and building levels
Session 3: Hazards, points, and "AI"
Session 4: Polish and adding fun stuff
