Demand for Python programmers who understand the latest skills in today’s fastest growing computer language, grows every day. Object-oriented programming (OOP) has become a must-have technique in today’s high-tech software development jobs.
In this intermediate course, students will use Python to explore OOP techniques including: encapsulation, polymorphism, and inheritance. The material is introduced and explained through the development of graphical user interface elements and, in a fun way, by building highly approachable, simple computer games. The Python language, because of its simple syntax, makes the implementation of OOP very clear. To build interactivity, we will use the well-known Pygame extension to introduce event-driven programs.
Along the way, you will gain an intermediate level of understanding of the Python language. After this course, you should be able to translate the underlying concepts to other OOP languages with ease.
