Coding - Learn how to build a classic arcade game!

 In this interactive coding workshop, participants will learn how to capture player inputs, create scenes, animate character movements, use sounds in the game and keep scores. At the completion participants will have a better understanding of what coding is, what it takes to build some of the products and games used every day, and finally how to create your own games at home for private use.

Presenter is Craig Aspinall.  

Craig is the co-founder of Coder Dojo which is located at the Gold Coast Media Laboratory. He has many years’ experience at coding and also teaching coding to students of all ages. He provides free coding workshops of a Saturday morning at the media lab. He has presented for us on a previous occasion and the coding workshop proved very popular.
