This title teaches the fundamentals of the Javascript coding language in a simple, logical way to help kids reach their goal of creating their very own PC game. Children will learn everything from creating a game world, animating characters and determining the physics of movement within the game. Each concept is illustrated with a screenshot to make checking easy, and incredible pixel art from 'Army of Trolls' makes this look like no other coding book

Author note

CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based programming clubs to help young people, between 7 and 17, learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and explore technology in an informal and creative environment. 

Within the CoderDojo Movement there is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self-led learning. One of the aims is to encourage creativity while having fun in a relaxed, social environment.
