Coding with Python – Create Amazing Graphics introduces coding in Python through a variety of projects. Each one teaches new coding concepts and results in some amazing graphics.
Python is a powerful, text-based programming language essential to grasp for serious coding but can be dull to learn. This book focuses on inspired learning. Step-by-step, it illustrates how to use Python code to create exciting and colourful graphics — making learning Python great fun!
Learn Python code to:
- Use random numbers to create unique artwork
- Mix colours together using variables to create amazing effects
- Use loops to repeat your code and create intricate patterns
- Code your own functions and build up your own designs
To create the games in this book, children will need a desktop computer or a laptop. The games require a proper keyboard so will not work well on a tablet or iPad. It is recommended that children should be supervised when using the internet, especially when using a new website.
