Creating an AR RPG for HoloLens – Concept Trailer

A couple of days ago, we created a concept trailer for an idea of an AR RPG for HoloLens using Sword Art Online as our inspiration. It’s kind of wacky, but it was a fun idea to create. Join our E-mail list for no-nonsense updates: ► How did it all start? Things started moving along in early 2017 when I first started to practice developing with my HoloLens much more than before. One of the things that had always been...

Introduction to Python – Chapter 9 – Dictionaries and Sets

In this video, we’ll talk about dictionaries and sets. For strings, lists, and tuples, we have been using integers as the indices and position numbers in order to get their values. Dictionaries are similar to lists except that instead of using integers as the indices, dictionaries can use any string or number or immutable type as the index. Let’s create a dictionary to demonstrate how it works. We will create a dictionary called states. Instead of using number indices, we...


Introduction to Python – Chapter 8 – Lists, Matrices, and Tuples

In the last video, we talked about lists. There are a couple of more things that we need to talk about lists including matrices. Let’s say that we had two lists:

With lists, a and b are the same thing. If I change b, then a is also changed. Let’s test changing b.

When we run the program, we can see that even though a was a list with 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, and we didn’t...


Introduction to Python – Chapter 7 – Lists

In this video, we’ll talk about lists. List is the term used for an ordered sequence of values where each value has an index. Before we continue to talk about lists, there is also a term called arrays from other programming languages that you might have heard about. Arrays are almost exactly like lists in Python. There’s an array module in Python for using arrays. In Python, arrays can only hold data of the same type. Lists can hold multiple...


Introduction to Python – Chapter 6 – Strings and For Loops

In this video, we’ll talk more about strings and explain the for loop. A string is a data type created when we use a pair of quotation marks.

is an example of a string. Let’s say that I wanted to get the “m” character in “microwavesam”. A character is the term used for a single symbol in Python. In Python and programming languages, we also use the term, element. An element is a term for any individual part of...


Introduction to Python – Chapter 5 – Iteration and While Loops

We talked about recursion and iteration in the last tutorial. Recursion is the term used when you call the same function inside a function, which causes repetition since you’re repeating the function. Iteration is the term used when you repeat steps without using recursion. This video will be about making iteration or repeating steps easier! In tutorial #2, we talked about most recent assignment because we talked about how you can assign a variable multiple times. A variable takes the...


Introduction to Python – Chapter 4 – Return and Recursion

In this video, we’ll talk about return statements and recursion. In a previous video, we talked about how the value that you get from a function is the return value. If I call type(4), I get the return value of int. How does the type() function return the type int value? Let’s write a function that adds two numbers and returns the result the same way how the type() function gets a result.

Notice how the function uses the...
