We learned about some new concepts today in the Python Games group – multi-line strings, lists, for loops, methods, elif statements and the dictionary data type.
We had a quick look at the Hangman Game from Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python (http://inventwithpython.com/chapter9.html). We covered Lists which are a way of storing a number of values in one variable and had some fun writing code snippets mainly based around X-Factor. We looked at some new ways of working with strings called multi-line strings. We also learned about new types of functions called methods and a new type of loop called a for loop. At the end of the session we started to get to grips with Pygame. Our code snippets are available here and my slides from today are here python session_4
