GameMaker Studios is a game development environment that targets those who are interested in game development, but don't know where to get started, or don't have the technical expertise to make it a reality. It features a simply drag-and-drop interface, allowing you to make rather sophisticated games without actually have to write a text based code. That being said, GameMaker does have its own scripting language called GML for those who are interested in getting started with text based coding for games. GML allows one to add further functionality and flexibility to their games without having to learn any of the tricky programming paradigms and languages that are commonly used in the industry. GameMaker is, overall, a great tool to get started with game development, regardless of whether or not you have any technical experience with it!

About the Coding Kids' Holiday Code Camps

Python Adventures

Python is a great programming language to help beginners to understand programming concepts. It is widely regarded as the best programming language for beginners because it is easy to learn, easy to read and write, extremely flexible, and helps you progress onto harder languages. Beginners Python #1 is the first in a series of Python Holiday Code Camps.

You can use Python to write quick scripts, backend web development and build websites using Django, a popular Python web framework. Python was used to build: YouTube, Instagram and Spotify. It is also a useful programming language which helps those studying or researching at Universities to conduct their research. It is widely used in scientific, technical and academic fields, i.e. Artificial Intelligence. 

If you have never coded before and you want to learn your first programming language, start with Python since it is versatile, the syntax is very simple, and it is easy to get started. Try Python for free with Code Academy

MicroMakers

Scratch is a great introduction to computer programming concepts. It is a drag and drop coding environment which suits children from the age of 6. Scratch is perfect for students with zero programming experience. Students explore the Scratch interface and familiarise themselves with capabilities of this program. They build their own computer games, animations and multimedia art, whilst in the process they discover computer science principles.

Game Maker - Suitable for children aged 10 - 16 years.

GameMaker Studios is a game development environment that targets those who are interested in game development, but don't know where to get started, or don't have the technical expertise to make it a reality. It features a simply drag-and-drop interface, allowing you to make rather sophisticated games without actually have to write a text based code. That being said, GameMaker does have its own scripting language called GML for those who are interested in getting started with text based coding for games. GML allows one to add further functionality and flexibility to their games without having to learn any of the tricky programming paradigms and languages that are commonly used in the industry. GameMaker is, overall, a great tool to get started with game development, regardless of whether or not you have any technical experience with it!
