In this tutorial I show what tools you need and where to get them. Then I explain the starter code very briefly and we get a feel for what it does and how it works.

The starter code contains three files:
|vec2d.py||a library for dealing with vectors, which we will use later for physics|
|pygamehelper.py||file that does a lot of the boring stuff for us, like setting up the window and handling basic events such as ESCAPE to quit. Also contains the main loop of the application|
|startercode.py||the file in which we will be doing all of our coding|
We are using Python 2.6.5 and not 2.7 only because Pygame is not yet compatible with 2.7FAQ
