About

This An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python (Part 2) offered by Coursera in partnership with Rice University is part of the Fundamentals of Computing Specialization.

Overview

This An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python (Part 2) offered by Coursera in partnership with Rice University is designed to help students with very little or no computing background learn the basics of building simple interactive applications. 

Our language of choice, Python, is an easy-to learn, high-level computer language that is used in many of the computational courses offered on Coursera. To make learning Python easy, we have developed a new browser-based programming environment that makes developing interactive applications in Python simple. These applications will involve windows whose contents are graphical and respond to buttons, the keyboard and the mouse.

Education

In part 2 of this course, we will introduce more elements of programming (such as list, dictionaries, and loops) and then use these elements to create games such as Blackjack.  Part 1 of this class will culminate in building a version of the classic arcade game "Asteroids".  Upon completing this course, you will be able to write small, but interesting Python programs.  

The next course in the specialization will begin to introduce a more principled approach to writing programs and solving computational problems that will allow you to write larger and more complex programs.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Mouse input, list methods, dictionaries
  • Classes and object-oriented programming
  • Basic game physics, sprites
  • Sets and animation
