Python, PyGame, and Raspberry Pi Game Development, 2nd Edition

Expand your basic knowledge of Python and use PyGame to create fast-paced video games with great graphics and sounds. This Python, PyGame, and Raspberry Pi Game Development, Second Edition shows how you can integrate electronic components with your games using the build-in general purpose input/output (GPIO) pins and some Python code to create two new games.

You’ll learn about object-oriented programming (OOP) as well as design patterns, such as model-view-controller (MVC) and finite-state machines (FSMs). Whether using Windows, macOS, Linux, or a Raspberry Pi, you can unleash the power of Python and PyGame to create great looking games.

The book also includes complete code listings and explanations for “Bricks,” “Snake,” and “Invaders”-three fully working games. These allow you to get started in making your own great games and then modify them or build your own exciting titles. The concepts are further explained using games such as “Copycat,” where the player must concentrate and repeat the sequence of lights and sounds, and “Couch Quiz,” in which PyGame and electronic components create a quiz game for 2-4 players.

eBook Description:

Learn Scala Programming: A step-by-step guide in building high-performance scalable applications with the latest features of Scala

The second version of Scala has undergone multiple changes to support features and library implementations. Scala 2.13, with its main focus on modularizing the standard library and simplifying collections, brings with it a host of updates.

Learn Scala Programming addresses both technical and architectural changes to the redesigned standard library and collections, along with covering in-depth type systems and first-level support for functions. You will discover how to leverage implicits as a primary mechanism for building type classes and look at different ways to test Scala code. You will also learn about abstract building blocks used in functional programming, giving you sufficient understanding to pick and use any existing functional programming library out there. In the concluding chapters, you will explore reactive programming by covering the Akka framework and reactive streams.

Learn:

By the end of this book, you will have built microservices and learned to implement them with the Scala and Lagom framework.

Exploring Advanced Features in C#: Enhance Your Code and Productivity

Become a more productive programmer by leveraging the newest features available to you in C#. This book highlights the new language features available to you and how to use these and other tools such as Bootstrap, SCSS, and jQuery to enhance your web applications.

Exploring Advanced Features in C# starts with some of the new features of C# 7 such as how to implement local functions, tuples and generalized async return types. The book also looks at C# 8, where the author demonstrates how to implement nullable reference types, recursive patterns, ranges, indicies, switch expressions, and many more. Next, you go through some of the distinct features of C# that might often be overlooked such as generics, asynchronous programming, and dynamic types. The author demonstrates how to implement these features through clear and concise examples. Next, you’ll discuss creating responsive web applications using ASP.NET Model View Controller (MVC) where you’ll learn how to combine Bootstrap with jQuery and SCSS to create interactive web applications with a great-looking, user-friendly UI. Moving forward, you will create and run applications on the latest .NET Core version 3.0 as well as explore some of the features of .NET Core 3.0. Finally, you will go through the tips and tricks of Visual Studio 2019 that make you more productive.

After reading the book, you will be able to implement new features available in C# and learn how to enhance your application development using ASP.NET MVC and .NET Core.
