Have you ever wanted to code your own games and share them with others?
This course teaches you how to code games using JavaScript and play them in a web browser. The lessons assume no prior coding experience and will walk you through coding your own pong game and fish game!
 
Each lesson will introduce a new JavaScript concept using fun interactions. Next, you will practice your JavaScript in a little in-browser text editor.  Last, you’ll be ready to follow a step by step activity to add new code to your game, saved on your computer. This course will be using Sublime Text as the coding editor to write all your JavaScript code! Start learning how to code in JavaScript. 
 
It’s a THREE week camp with two weeks of learning JavaScript coding and game design. The last week you create your own game and we have a fun competition with prizes.
