Explorers – Week 3 – 2018, Your First Game!

Hi everyone!

Wow! what a fantastic turnout on Saturday again, 79 ninjas in the room! plus a few adults!

I hope you had a good time, I know that I really enjoyed it. There was a really great atmosphere and energy in the room.

A special thank you to Mentor Julia for getting 14 loaner laptops working for us this week, so that everyone that wanted to participate, could. Another thank you to the other Mentors in the room, Eoin and Ruaidhrí, it makes my job easy when they can get around the room and help out when needed. You are doing a great job.

One of the first things we must do before we start anything is make a plan.


We quickly learn when we begin our coding that it is very important to test our code as we go along. Making mistakes is good, but we must learn from them by spotting them (testing) and fixing them.

I am attaching my notes in PDF for you. CDA-S7 Week_03-FeedingtheFish.pdf

We will continue to add to the game next week but don’t worry if you weren’t here this week, I will have a copy of the game so that you can join in.

See you all nest week!

Martha and the Explorers Mentors, Julia, Eoin and Ruaidhrí
