iPad Game Development Using Pythonista

Chris Robinson, Aberfoyle Park High School Part of CW16

Would you like to write an entire app or game on your iPad using nothing but Python code? This beginner workshop is based around using the Pythonista app to rapidly prototype an iPad game right on the iPad. No computer required!

Participants do not need to have any prior Python or app development knowledge. This workshop will also showcase some of the work I am currently doing with my student app developers and feature a how-to on packaging the finished code ready for distribution on the App Store.

Participants will need to bring an iPad with the Pythonista 3 ($14.99) app installed.
