Take your coding further with this next step in programming Python. Available as part of the Fire Tech Unlimited Membership, this project-based course will extend your knowledge of the fundamentals and finish with a complex and creative adventure game project.

This course builds on the Python fundamentals you may already have and helps you to deepen your knowledge of this powerful and popular coding language. Python is helping a wide range of industries push the boundaries of digital innovation and creation. 

You'll develop your knowledge and use of advanced strings & expressions, file IO, data structures and using third-party libraries applied to solve challenges in our project-led course. This will culminate in the Text Quest, an adventure game in coded in Python. You will create an explorable game world, with  multiple text command options, combat encounters, enemy types, XP systems, saving, loading and rewards.

This is an independent learning course, with a focus on project work. Students will work independently at their own pace through learning materials and assignments, and should they need it they will be able to access a Help Clinic that they can book onto to get answers to questions they may have.

Once you have a Fire Tech Unlimited Membership, you can access the project here.
