This Month's Topics

  • Principles Driven Development - How PursuedPyBear decides what's important.
    By: Piper Thunstrom
    Experience Level: Intermediate
    PursuedPyBear (ppb) is a Python game development library. PPB started like many projects: “How do I make my life easier?” Then teachers started asking if it could be built for teaching CS. That started the project on a path to have an extreme focus on API design and education. This distills the concepts that the ppb community have decided matter for long term health of the project, and the technical principles that came out of it.
