Jason R Briggs grew up in Hawke's Bay, on the east coast of New Zealand, but for the last 17 years has divided his time between NZ, Thailand and England.

Which is entirely far too much time spent strapped inside a glorified tin can with wings.

He currently lives in England, in a small village just outside of London, where he spends much of his time grumbling about the weather... the people on the Underground... the distinct lack of anything resembling a proper antipodean lager.

After that you probably want to look at self-learning a library like PyGame (assuming you want to stick with Python). But if you're talking about professional games dev, I guess perhaps branch your learning out into another language as well. You don't say what sort of games dev, so hard to provide guidance, but if you're thinking about modern console or PC games, then you'll need to learn C/C++ (so you'll want to look at some beginners books/guides for C and C++) -- if you're talking about mobile games, iOS would be Objective-C or Swift languages, and Android would be Java. So there's lots of stuff out there about getting started with those...

Hope that helps.(less)

“The range function at can be used to create a list of numbers ranging from a starting number up to the number just before the ending number. That may sound a little confusing. Let’s combine the range function with the list function to see exactly how this works. The range function doesn’t actually create a list of numbers; it returns an iterator, which is a type of Python object specially designed to work with loops. However, if we combine range with list, we get a list of numbers.”
