Activities for February 2017

Main Workshop: Objects

We’ll be using the Java programming language to take a look at object-oriented programming, and how it differs from the ‘procedural’ programming we’ve used before. Then, we’ll use objects to create part of a computerised tabletop roleplaying game.

This workshop is suitable for anybody who has previously used a text-based programming language, like Python.

All-day Activity: Command line activity

If you attended the Linux command line workshop last month, and want some more practice, we have a written guide for you to work through.

You’ll be given an SD card with a command-line only version of Raspbian, and it’ll be your job to install a graphical desktop of your choice.
