- Audience level:
March 11th 8:20 a.m. – 8:25 a.m.
Finding polished but free resources to teach programming to kids can be difficult. "Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python" is a book that is freely available under a Creative Commons license, and gives the source code for many simple games so that readers (young adults or adult adults) can see what programs "look like".
This poster covers the book contents and the author's experience writing programming books for adults and how the Creative Commons license has made publishing (and even profiting) books easier for independent authors.
