Teach me to code in 20 minutes

A session at Barcamp Blackpool 3

Saturday 15th October, 2011

12:30pm to 12:50pm (GMT)

Learn how to make a game (The Beach)

Scratch is an extremely friendly tool that children of any age can use to learn how to program a game.

In my talk/demo - I spent the first 10 minutes showing how to create a simple 'Pong' game. Then using a PicoBoard (a hardware interface) I engage the audience by asking them to shout to control their paddle.
