Bray Dojo Python Resources
Fri, 11/15/2013 - 19:44 -- Julian Green
The Coder Dojo Bray Python DropBox store can be found at:
This store contains: All the info you should need for Python in Bray Dojo.
Download the Course.zip above to a USB stick or the laptop to be used in the Dojo. Do not install anything yet.
We will run through installs in the Dojo session and show you where everything goes.
NOTE - For Mac Users: :-(
- Currently there are no working Python3.3 AND Pygames combinations for Mac that we have found.
:: It seems the only way to get pygames AND Python working 'happily' on a Mac with Python 3 is to run Windows under BootCamp.
That said :-
Python does install on a Mac & runs without Pygames functionality & there are still a lot of code samples that can be run without having Pygames installed.
FYI -- Helpful reference information that gets installed on the machine with Python & Pygame:
Python installs into -- C:\Python33\ :::: The Python help file can be found at ->> C:\Python33\Doc\python331.chm
Pygames installs into -- C:\Python33\Lib\site-packages\pygame ::::
Pygame reference information can be found via ->> C:\Python33\Lib\site-packages\pygame\docs\index.html
The local help/info file documentation can also be found online if internet access is available:
Python is at : http://docs.python.org/3/
PyGame at : http://www.pygame.org/docs/
