Coding in Python II

Learn how to make increasingly complex graphics‐based programs and games in Python. You'll build on computer science concepts such as statements and variables, values, expressions, conditionals, Booleans, while loops, randomness, libraries, debugging, program analysis, procedural drawing (lines, shapes, colors, animation, and program structure). You’ll also delve into concepts such as the Pygame library for mouse and keyboard input and timers, lists, for loops, and sprite graphics.

You'll code a variety of exercises both on your own and with the instructor that make use of these concepts to create games, visual programs and more.
