Thoughts: Using PyGame as a GUI Interface

So I thought I would do something fun and something I’ve been meaning to do. I remembered the chapter about genetic algorithms which basically introduced me to all this and remembered that further along there was a little example of “smart” rockets that would get closer and closer to the goal with each generation. It really interested me at the time, but I couldn’t really do it in Python because I didn’t have a GUI that I could program.

"Smart" rockets

Well today, I downloaded and installed Pygame and set out to learn it through this free online book. I’ll basically be working through it and it’ll be great. I think I’ll start on recreating that little rocket simulation and then maybe I can even do something cooler.
