Coding and Game Development - Part 2

This 8-week course is designed to follow my first class — Intro to Coding and Game Development. Students will build on the skills learned there with new tools, open-ended problems, and more game development.

Description

Class Experience

- Apply the coding tools taught in Part 1 to appropriately challenging problems
- Practice and Develop Problem- Solving Skills
- Gain confidence and experience with solving problems that are difficult or confusing at first glance
- Give students additional tools to implement the features they imagine for their personal projects and games
After each lesson I will send out a PDF with the next set of practice problems. I will also encourage students to take some extra time, outside of class, to apply each lesson to their personal game. In total I would expect this to take less than 1 hour per week, though I'm happy to suggest additional self-guided activities if a student is interested.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
To make setup as easy as possible, we will continue using Codepen for writing and running code.
