How to learn Python Programming by Creating a Game
- Basic Windows knowledge
A program or code is a set of instructions that tells the computer what to do.
In this course, you will learn basic concepts of programming, and apply them to create a game.
You will be using a well-known programming language called Python to tell the computer what to do.
Python programming language is a simple and yet powerful programming language. Python is chosen because it is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Websites like Instagram, Google, Spotify, Netflix, Pinterest and many more were built using Python.
Developing a game is a great motivation to learn programming. With the right tools, mindset and methods, you can create your own game fast and without much struggles.
Programming is fun and it is an important digital life skill to acquire in the 21st Century. It is not surprising that many people make money while learning programming. You can do it too!
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
1. Explain fundamental programming concepts such as data types, control structures, functions and modules.
2. Apply programming concepts in creating a game using Python.
3. Develop a computer game with a graphical user interface.
Quoting from Mark Zuckerberg, “In fifteen years we’ll be teaching programming just like reading and writing…and wondering why we didn’t do it sooner.”
So, don't wait anymore. Start your programming journey today. It will be exciting!
