About this event

Join Gamers Guild to build retro-styled Arcade Games using Microsoft's MakeCode Arcade engine! This 2D game engine comes with sprites, platformer-style collisions, tile maps, particle systems, and many more integrated features. Like Scratch, by MIT, MakeCode Arcade uses familiar block-based coding that toggles to a typescript language Python or JavaScript. In this course, students will learn complex programming through block script and over time graduate to exclusively using Python or Javascript. This allows for a confident transition into more widely used languages. No previous block-based programming experience is necessary. MakeCode Arcade is a great introduction to block-based coding languages, in addition to being a great ‘what's next’ stepping stone after block-based coding! Please note: this course is not suitable for students with limited keyboarding experience or skills because of the regular use of coding through typed-script. Additionally, familiarity with home computers is strongly recommended. Mondays, January 24th-March 21st- 8 lessons No lesson on Monday, February 21st 3:45pm-4:45pm
