Audience level:


From your first 'while True:' to your first framework.


A passion for games led me into software development and it's still my test bed for new concepts. Starting with simple arcade style games without transitions and using 'while True:' game loops all the way up to releasing my first Python package, I'll cover concepts I learned and ways to apply your other skills to game development.

I'll cover basic game development concepts, some existing games libraries, why game libraries are always opinionated (And that's a good thing!), and various patterns that can be used for games.
