pygame training video for Springer
I have used pygame for various personal and professional projects, and delivered a pygame workshop at EuroPython 2019. At the same conference I met an executive editor for the Springer Science and Business Media Company to discuss creating some Python training videos for Springer.
Shortly afterwards Springer commissioned me to create a pygame training video, based on a proposal I submitted.
“Game Development with PyGame. Write Your Own Games, Simulations, and Demonstrations with Python” was published in 2019 and is available to subscribers of the Springer service
It covers all the essentials of creating a game or other interactive experience, such as shapes, colours, movements, game loop, text, images, handling mouse and keyboard events, sound and music. It explains the syntax and shows examples of the core features of pygame, in a little over an hour
