At the end of this short course you'll have programmed your first game. You'll learn gameplay development fundamentals by really doing it – writing and running real code on your own machine.

Each step of the course has the source code attached exactly as it should look at that time (click "View Resources" then "Downloadable Resources"), for you to compare to or pick up from, so you can't get stuck!

Begin Your Game Programming Journey the Proven Way

"Make the simplest game possible." "Program a ball and paddle project." "Practice by first remaking something from the 1970's." All beginning developers hear this advice from more experienced peers... because it works!

By following this approach you will:

  • Learn design from a fun classic that people know and enjoy.
  • Start your practice today – now! – without waiting for an idea.
  • Finish your game in hours or in a weekend, not over months.
  • Understand every line of code used in the entire program.
  • Avoid distraction from searching for or creating detailed art.
  • Master fundamentals needed to make your own games better.

You can program this game with a normal text editor, and run it in the web browser you already have. No special software is needed.

Though you'll be coding in JavaScript for HTML5 canvas in this course, the focus is on common game programming concepts. You can later apply these same patterns to get quick results in other programming languages such as C#, Java, ActionScript 3, C++, or Python.

I'm a private game development trainer, and for clients new to gameplay programming this is exactly the material that I cover to get them started quickly. Within hours you will have finished programming your first project. This is the fastest way to get results. The momentum gained from doing this provides a solid foundation to give more advanced concepts meaning and context as you continue on in your journey of learning game development.

Save the Life of a Loved One with these Basic First Aid Skills

  • Recognize a stroke before it’s too late

  • Help accident victims

  • Stay safe during a fire

When the Sh** Hits the Fan, You Can Keep Your Cool if You Know What to Do

In the age of the internet, there are plenty of online first aid courses for you to choose from. These will teach you all the same things, but you won’t get to practice those skills to get them right.   

Here, you will learn to reach the same goal – saving a life – in a way that you won’t need to practice in class to get it right.   

Calling for an ambulance is always step one, but what then? When every second count, you can make the difference between your loved one making it in (relatively) good shape onto the ambulance, or deteriorating catastrophically before help has even arrived.   

If you want to learn what to do when things go wrong, check out this course.

Content and Overview   

We designed this first aid course so that you can learn crucial skills like CPR without practicing them in class. You don’t need any prior knowledge to take this course.   

We cover the most common life-threatening emergencies, from the generic “there’s someone lying on the ground, is he unconscious?” to “that car hit a woman in the crosswalk, I think she’s still breathing!”   

You will learn not only what to do in different types of emergencies, but also how to help different types of people. For example, you can’t do CPR on babies the same way you do on adults, the Heimlich maneuver is different for pregnant women, and not everyone can be saved from a heart attack using aspirin.   

We’ve also included some bonus content:

 

  • Info on the leading causes of death in the world – heart attacks and strokes – why they happen, how you can recognize them, and what you should do when they happen.

  • The important guideline you should follow in case of a fire, as well as tips on how you can prevent the fire altogether.

Finally, we’ve boiled everything down to the exact steps you need to remember for each emergency situation, and put them all in the downloadable Study Manual for you to keep and refer back to whenever you want or need to. Now you’re ready to roll.    Please support our cause by spreading this course!

Every penny collected from this course is going back to empowering underprivileged youth in the developing world.

Excellent health care... Close to home. ...

Students: 138, Price: Free

Accredited social health activist (ASHA) is a community health worker instituted by the government of India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) as a part of the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM).[1] The mission began in 2005; full implementation was targeted for 2012. Once fully implemented, there is to be "an ASHA in every village" in India, a target that translates into 250,000 ASHAs in 10 states.[2] The grand total number of ASHAs in India was reported in July 2013 to be 870,089.[3] There are 859,331 ASHAs in 32 states and union territories as per the data provided by the states in December 2014. This excludes data from the states of Himachal Pradesh, Goa, Puducherry, and Chandigarh, since the selection of ASHA is underway in these states.

Their tasks include motivating women to give birth in hospitals, bringing children to immunization clinics, encouraging family planning (e.g., surgical sterilization), treating basic illness and injury with first aid, keeping demographic records, and improving village sanitation.[6] ASHAs are also meant to serve as a key communication mechanism between the healthcare system and rural populations.

A baseline survey is to be taken at the district level. It is for fixing decentralized monitoring goals and indicators. The community monitoring would be at the village level. The planning commission would be the eventual monitor of outcomes. External evaluation will be taken up at frequent intervals
