This workshop launches students into the world of writing code through the process of programming video games! The emphasis in this workshop is on learning the foundational programming concepts, including variables, conditional statements, and loops, that form the basis of game logic. Students are also exposed to concepts in physics, graphics, and audio libraries while programming the logic for a series of PC games.
This course is part of the Game Programming workshop series.
