Have you ever wanted to learn to program in the highly in demand Python programming language? This course will do just that, through creating a game similar to Crossy Road or Frogger!

With no prior programming experience required, we will demonstrate the core concepts you need to be able to program in Python. Through using the Pygame library, we’ll put together your first Python game and you will learn the fundamentals of development in Python.

The objective of this course is to get you up and running with Python in a way that’s both engaging and fun. By the end of this course, you’ll be familiar with concepts such as variables, functions, conditional statements, and loops — plus you’ll have built a game to add to your portfolio.
