I know next to nothing about coding, but this book helped without being condescending. The format for most of the skills are:
1) Type this thing
2) Let's take a deep look into what each of those lines actually does
3) Now try to modify it on your own
Can I just say this book makes me feel like I'm actually capable of coding a fully working game? Buy it now, share with friends, you won't regret it!
OH! Last thing! The publisher provides all the sweet pixel art and sound effects you'll need to put this thing together. I swear, if you like Lego kits, this is the Lego kit of coding books!
In typical No Starch publishing style, Mission Python is a well documented, colorful, and engaging publication with little to criticize. The author provides all program listings, graphic and sound resources comprising the collateral support resources that are necessary for a professional software production. Every iteration of the project development is documented line-by-line. This is not a programming tutorial, but an example a user can follow to cut-and-paste, modify, and customize. I completed this book cover-to-cover and found sufficient latitude to adapt the game to my rudimentary gaming skills. I had complete freedom to change things.
The only small learning bump I encountered was transitioning between the Python IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and the Pygame Zero run-time system that actually launches the program. I completed the entire project using the newly released Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+, which is very inexpensive, works great, and very easy to use. To quote the author, “If you’re using a Raspberry Pi, Python and Pygame Zero are already installed.” Windows and Macintosh take a bit of tweaking.
Mission Python offers a level of depth and sophistication from a programmatic perspective. Great care has been taken to organize, comment, and name functions and variables clearly. All audio and graphic resources are clearly labeled and accessible. The project is entirely organized using Python Lists and Dictionary data structures, which are features I find when working with Internet based systems making web based applications. Learning what Mission Python teaches, explains much about how more complex systems work. That’s very good.
Finally, I purchase much from Amazon directly, but when it comes to No Starch Publications, I usually buy directly from the publisher. No Starch generally offers bundles that include not only hard copy, but ALL the major soft copy formats with no DRM (Digital Rights Management). This is extremely useful with programming publications where being able to copy complex code sequences directly from the book to the an IDE is a vital learning feature.
I gave a copy of Mission Python to my eleven year old grandson to play with so we could do something together during the Christmas holidays. He had the book for about 3 weeks. When we arrived, I found he was finishing chapter 5. That is a huge endorsement for this work. I had a good time too, and I’m not eleven.
Sean's style is clear and the book is formatted really well which is important because the book is so densely packed with information and every resource needed. The presentation is systematic but never boring.
I worked through the book with my 9 and 7 year olds and although at lot of it was above them they responded well to the images and clear diagrams in the book and the book helped me understand concepts and ideas so I could then distill it for my children. They are inspired to keep learning, programming and creating games.
No starch press is one of our favourite publishers for tech and science related books and they have another winner with Mission Python.
This book takes you step by step learning how to create every part of a game and what each piece of code means as you input it. So far the book has left nothing out in the explanation so I feel like I'm not just writing code but understanding what it does. This book is fantastic for beginers, people wanting to refresh their python skills, or people that just want a new hobby.
One of best parts to me while learning this was when I got stuck. there was an area I could not get my code to work no matter how hard I tried. after hours of getting nowhere I emailed the author thinking I would not get a reply back. After less then 24 hours he emailed me back with the solution to my problem.
I'm so happy I bought this book and I honestly cant recommend this more!
