Pygame is a Python package that wraps the SDL library. SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) is a cross-platform development library written in C, designed to provide access to multimedia: 2D graphics, audio, keyboard, mouse and joystick. Pygame can be used to design games but not only: anything that makes use of a graphical interface, sound, etc; and in particular, it can be used for demos. I will present and comment on several simple code examples that introduce the main modules of Pygame, dealing with display, images, sprites, text, events, time, sound, keyboard and mouse.
