Game Dev Workshop, part 2

Come and learn to write code for a mythical 8-bit video game computer called the "PICO-8", with two expert game programmers from Activision, Michael Vance and Wade Brainerd. No matter if you're an experienced hacker or if you've never typed a letter of code, we'll have a great time and make some awesome games together.

Topics covered will include a complete introduction to computer programming in the context of simple 2D video games, a tour of the PICO-8 virtual game system and its development tools, and guidance through more advanced topics like animation, collision detection and AI.

Students should bring a computer unless otherwise arranged, and should be comfortable typing and with basic equations such as addition and multiplication.

RSVPs to encouraged, but not required. This is an amazing FREE opportunity to learn game development from the pros!
