Welcome to Information Technology 11/12! This is a course intended to teach some of the basic principles involved in programming. Specifically, this will cover program flow, decision making, data input and output as well as storage of information. The focus of this course will be to create a text based game using web based technologies. While this course may teach some of the fundamentals of game design, this is not a video game design course. If you have time at the end of the year, or even mid year, and would like to explore this on your own, it can be counted towards your course assessment as long as you can demonstrate that you have used it to meet some of the learning outcomes of the course.
We will be creating a game that can be played with a web browser, so primarily text with maybe some simple graphics for decoration. Actions will be primarily user input based (users click on links or buttons) at which point the user interface can be updated with new information, or a new page can be loaded.
