Mit diesem Buch lernst du spielend leicht zu programmieren - in Minecraft und mit der Programmiersprache Python. Dazu brauchst du nur einen Windows-PC, Mac oder einen Raspberry Pi sowie einen Internet-Anschluss. In jedem Kapitel lernst du mehr ber das Programmieren mit Python und wendest es direkt in Minecraft an. Zum Beispiel helfen dir Variablen beim Teleportieren, Strings beim Chatten mit Mitspielern und mit if-Anweisungen und while-Schleifen schreibst du schon bald deine ersten kleinen Spiele in Minecraft. Dann kommen die Funktionen - mit ihnen und mit dem bisher Gelernten stampfst du Bauwerke und ganze Stdte aus dem Boden (und lsst sie ebenso schnell verschwinden)! Du lernst, wie du mit einem kleinen Python-Programm komplette Gebude kopierst, speicherst und berall in Minecraft auf Knopfdruck aufrufst. Zum Schluss steigst du in die Objektorientierung ein und machst dich mit Klassen, Objekten und Vererbung vertraut, um schlielich mit Python zu programmieren wie ein echter Profi. Alle Programmcode-Beispiele kannst du online herunterladen. (Hinweis: dieses Buch ist eine unvernderte Neuauflage von "e;Python programmieren lernen mit Minecraft"e;.

Scottish Art since 1960

Scottish Art since 1960

Author: Craig Richardson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/11/2016

Craig Richardson here addresses key areas of cultural politics and identity in a way that not only illuminates the development of Scottish art, but teases out another strand of the plurality of developments which led to the success of artists throughout the UK in the 1990s. It is of the highest relevance whether one's perspective is that of the development of the Scottish art, British art or European art of this period. The book adds significantly to our knowledge of the art of this period in a way that will aid not only our historical understanding but our understanding of the dynamics of art practice today. Providing an analysis and including discussion (interviewing artists, curators and critics and accessing non-catalogued personal archives) towards a new chronology, Richardson here examines and proposes a sequence of precisely denoted 'exemplary' works which outlines a self-conscious definition of the interrogative term 'Scottish art.' Among the artists whose work is discussed are John Latham, Simon Starling, Alan Johnston, Roderick Buchanan, Glen Onwin, Christine Borland, William Johnstone, Joan Eardley, Alexander Moffat, Douglas Gordon, Alan Smith, Graeme Fagen, Ross Sinclair and many others. The discussion culminates in a critically original demonstration of the scope for further research and practice within the subject, facilitating national cultural debate on the character of Scottish-national visual art.
