What’s it all about?
Quick-Fire Lessons are fast and loose, with an emphasis on learning by doing.
We aim to provide a supportive, open and safe environment for you to try out new things.

Quick-Fire Lessons are a weekly event, with lots of introductions to various awesome things. If you want to participate in the problems/exercises please bring your own laptop/device. It’s also fine to drop in for a look and listen.

These lessons will be facilitated by Micheál and Darren and possibly a mix of other people along the way through 2015. We’re constantly improving the learning experience from week to week. We’d like to keep this up so please be generous with feedback!

Our preliminary list for coding content (later will see more subjects) includes the lastest in the following languages/platforms:

  • HTML5 & CSS3
  • Python
  • JavaScript
  • Angular JS *
  • Git *
  • WordPress

*Asterix’s mean that we cannot possibly cover everything in one class due to topics being very broad/deep.

See you there!

Game Development Workshop

Game Development Workshop

 

Starting Wednesday 21st and taking place over four weeks, the Game Development Workshop will guide participants through the development of a game.

 

Rather than concentrating on the basics, like input and movement, we’ll be going over how to put a game together using object orientated programming techniques such as Managers, Game States and Finite State Machines.

 

We’ll be using Unity with C# to develop, though the methods used can be applied to almost any language or framework (including XNA).

 

Details

  • Runs on the 21st Sept, 28th Sept, 5th Oct & 12th Oct.
  • From 6pm to 10pm.
  • The workshop costs €20, this covers the four sessions and is payable at the first.
    No need to book or pre-pay.

 

What You’ll Need

  • A laptop with Unity installed.
  • Experience of a programming language.
