For the past week, I have been attending a programming camp which was meant for people who are doing computer programming for the first time. We used a program called Alice which was made by Carnegie Melon University. You can easily download this program.
We made one short film and one video game. The video game was a game where you try to hit targets which are popping up from random places. It took one week, 6 hours a day, to make the video game and the short film.
My short film had dialogue, props and movement. Programming takes a long time though. The reason I say this is it took me a week to make a 1 minute long game and a 1 minute long video. You need a lot of patience for programming. I loved this camp a lot and I would definitely recommend trying programming once in your life.
