Hi Robert,

Sure, we'd be happy to point you toward some useful resources.  If you
haven't learned a programming language yet, you'll probably want to look
at the resources for new programmers first:


There are tutorials there that will help you get familiar with the idea of
programming, and they're all pretty good.  Many authors of those tutorials
are frequent posters to Tutor as well, so you can easily ask them when the
tutorials get confusing.  *grin*

As you're experimenting with Python, you can take a look at some example
programs at the Useless Python website:


to see how these programming ideas are applied in real programs!  The
programs at Useless Python have been contributed by people on Tutor, so
we're pretty familiar with them.

Sooner or later, when you learn enough Python, you can play around with
some game-specific Python modules, like pygame:


which is an extension for Python that supports writing video games in

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask here on Tutor; we'll be
happy to chat about programming.
