Our Next Club Meeting will be on Thursday, November 5 from 5-7 p.m. in BA3008

Hey Everyone.

The game club will be meeting this week on Thursday, November 5 from 5-7p.m. in BA3008.  Same time, but in a different room than last week’s meeting.  Sorry for the short notice.

This time around we’ll be teaching all of you about programming in Python and subsequently using PyGame as a way to make quick prototypes of your own video games. Python is one of the easiest programming languages to learn, and it serves as a good starting point for learning other programming languages more easily, too. Additionally, we’ll also be discussing a number of other tools that that you can use to develop video games with. So even if you’ve never programmed before, don’t worry because we will do our best to ensure that everyone has a good understanding of how to make their own video games.

And lastly, I would just like to thank fellow game club member Bilal for providing me with lots of resources and explanation about Python, PyGame, and how to teach each of these to others. I must say that he’s certainly helped me appreciate just how good of a programming language Python with PyGame is for making quick prototypes for video games.

Okay then, see you all at the meeting!
