Device Agnostic: The only thing you need is a relatively up-to-date version of either Firefox, Chrome, Explorer or Safari, and an internet connection. If you are using CodeMonkey on a tablet: For best performance - use a relatively new tablet (from the last two years) connected to the internet and access our website through the Chrome/Safari app. 
What will I get by attending: Each participant will get a trial that will include our three Game Builder courses: Platformer, Frogger and Draw Your Own Sprite plus Create Games. This will be good for 3 months.
