Python available on Gamebuino

Dear Gambuinian,

As we announced a few weeks ago, you can now learn to code in Python language with Gamebuino!!

None of this would have been possible without our elite Gamebuinian Sorunome who is at the origin of the Python interpreter for Gamebuino. And we say a huge thanks to her for this great work. <3

Our Python workshops are now available in the academy.

The first workshop: Discover the programming in was created and published by Sylvain, member of the Gamebuino team.

The second Workshop: Learn to code a snake with Python was designed by one of the most loyal members of the community: Steph. We would like to thank him for his great involvement and his many contributions! :)

These 2 official workshops, will soon be joined by more content and also some modifications and improvements to the language interpreter.

As always, we are waiting for your feedback!



New in the shop

You can now save €20 or €50 on the purchase of Gamebuino META by buying in packs of 2 or 4 consoles. So, if you have gifts to make or geek friends to share the bill with, don't hesitate to take this opportunity ;)

 

Pick of the week

Given the large amount of very cool creations freshly uploaded on Gamebuino.com, it's impossible to choose just one. I decided to do an article dedicated to your creations which will be specially written to present you with the latest news! Stay connected.

Gamebuinian of the week!

As we’re really proud of our community, we love to highlight his members.

This week Max gave us the pleasure to answer our questions :)

Can you introduce yourself in a few words?

I am a collector of 19th century curiosities and a Geek most of my life. My free time is devoted to photography, bivouacs in the middle of nature and the Gamebuino since its release. At work I'm a communication manager, in a pretty cool industry.

Tell us your story with Gamebuino!

I discovered Gamebuino coincidentally on Kickstarter. I immediately adhered to the concept: a beautiful console 100% made in France with a real pedagogical approach for game coding.

What about your story with the code?

I have always more or less coded little things, at an amateur level: website, Arduino, rocket in electronics club, PLC, etc.

What is your first creation?

I don't have any creation yet, I'm working on a project that will revolve around the 20,000 league Nautilus universe under the sea, with a minimalist graphic style and inspired by Hetzel covers.

What is the creation you are most proud of?

I'd say more about my contribution! I participate in the development of the Academy of the site, and I am proud to be a contributor to Gamebuino ^^.

Do you have anything to add?

Great worshipper of the tom saddle mustache laughs

Oh yes, and if you want here's a mockup of the title screen of my game project

You can actually use any editor you want, you'll just have to name your file code.py and drag&drop it into the virtual file system.

Mu editor is recommended as it has a built-in serial monitor and stuffs. As you are on linux, you could actually just use screen as a serial monitor  (e.g. screen /dev/ACM0 115200)! :D

On Debian and derivative there is a package mu-editor.

But the best way to install it it through pip install, as described here: https://codewith.mu/en/howto/1.0/install_with_python
