Beginner website for programming: scratch.mit.edu

Post by rEsTnPeAcEz » Sat Jul 27, 2013 4:05 pm

I am beginning to learn computer science. For some reason my tutor wants myself to be more advanced then other students in my class and so I hope to get there. I started to learn binary addition and subtraction. Now I am slowly trying to begin programming.

I am using a cool website that helps learn the basic principles of programming. It might help other beginners like me. Remember that this is just outside of the programming code, slowly when you try other things then you will go deeper in the code.

The website: http://scratch.mit.edu/

Have fun programming.

Awesome, Scratch reminds me of programming Lego Mindstorms. I think it's based on Smalltalk, which makes it doubly cool for me!

Yep. It is pretty cool. Right now I am trying to make a game like Brick Breaker or Block Breaker, just without the blocks, maybe for now at least. :D

And those two games are breakout clones I think.
I am no longer active to Halo or MGM, and don't guarantee a response on the forums or through email. I will however linger around the discord room for general chatting. It's been fun!

This is pretty cool. I remember some friends and I were going to make a game out of this same concept, but unfortunately we never got the approval on the project.
I can't get enough of Gargoyles.
