Content: This book is intended for anyone who wants to learn how to program games. It is ideally suited to students who want to learn Python and PyGame on their Raspberry Pi.
While not necessary, this book has been oriented toward the Raspberry Pi computer. The Python programming language is ideally suited to beginners and experts alike.
The skills you will learn in this book are easily transferable to other computer languages too. If you are unfamiliar with the Raspberry Pi, there are several good eBook guides on getting started including mine called A Slice of Raspberry Pi, available from all good eBook retailers.
This book assumes that you are familiar with the Raspberry Pi computer and that you have the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s recommended Raspbian operating system installed. Raspbian is a distribution of the Debian Linux operating system built specifically for the Raspberry Pi.
This distribution contains all the Software Development Kits (SDKs) including one for Python that includes PyGame. If you don’t have Raspbian installed, you will have to ensure that you have Python and PyGame installed on your system.
