Computer Programming Club

Welcome to the computer programming website. Computer programming takes place between 1320 and 140Binary0 every Wednesday and is open to all. All I ask is that if you start, you stick with it for a while so that you can progress (it isn't easy at first!)

We started with Visual Basic, but have now moved on to Scratch as our chosen programming interface.

Below you'll find posts of the things we're working on at the moment. Happy coding....!

The nominal roll for the club is found  by clicking here (only accessible to TJJ!)

  2. To get into the command line window press the start button and type in: cmd followed by hitting ENTER.
  3. If you don't have python on your machine you can download it from here.

We have now turned our attentions to building a set of Raspberry Pis. Once these are built we will start programming these to see if we can get them to do some 'useful' things.

The Python programming school looks like a useful resource for people who want to get ahead: http://www.pythonschool.net/
