Welcome to Intro to Video Game Design and Computer Programming Concepts! This course is an introduction to the primary concepts of gaming, and an exploration of how these basic concepts affect the way gamers interact with games. We will look at the history of video gaming, and discover trends toward careers in the video gaming industry as well as create a few of our own games.  In this course you will understand what defines a “game” and the mechanics and rules behind different types of games. Through classwork assignments, projects, and videos, you'll learn ways to create and describe a game concept, and specifically what makes a compelling game.  Coding is for everyone!  No previous programming knowledge is required.
