Episode #75: Pythonic games at CheckIO

Published Fri, Sep 9, 2016, recorded Thurs, Sep 8, 2016.


Do you like to play games or solve puzzles? Chances are pretty good that you do. After all, what is programming and software development but one really elaborate puzzle?

On this episode of Talk Python To Me, you meet someone who pushed this idea of programming as a game to its logical conclusion. Alexander Liabakh is the creator of CheckIO and Empire of Code. CheckIO is a programming adventure game where you solve puzzles and share them with fellow players. Empire of Code is a tower defense game where part of the strategy is to actually program AI in Python.
