Description

This workshop launches you into the world of computer programming through the practice of writing code for video games. The emphasis in this workshop is on learning the foundational programming concepts using Java - including variables, conditional statements, and loops - that form the basis of games and other programs. You are also introduced to concepts in physics, graphics, and audio libraries while programming the logic for a series of PC games.

You will learn:

  • Java coding basics such as variables, conditionals, iterations, and functions
  • Basic video game programming concepts, including character animation, character behaviors, sound effects, music, and processing user input
  • Game development math concepts such as 2D coordinate systems, vectors, linear equations, and quadratics
  • Physics topics such as gravity, friction, opposing forces, and momentum

Prerequisites:

  • No prior knowledge or experience is required

Technical Requirements:

Students must have access to a computer as well as additional hardware and software. Some programs or courses may indicate additional technology requirements, and not all programs are Mac compatible. See individual course descriptions for more information.Windows PC or Mac computer

  • Display with minimum resolution of 1024 x 768. While it is not mandatory, it is recommended to have a second monitor connected to the computer to extend the desktop. This allows the student to more easily follow what the instructor is demonstrating while concurrently being able to see the software environment that the student is working within.
  • Headset with microphone
  • Three-button mouse
  • Broadband internet connection
  • Current, major internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, or Safari)
  • Latest version of Adobe Reader

Orientation Session:

Please note that in order to ensure that students have their home computers set up correctly for the class, and to orientate students to learning in an online environment, there will be a 30-minute scheduled orientation session that will run the week before the workshop is scheduled to start. Information about this will be sent to students by the instructor the week before the start of the workshop.
