Join Christian Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps for programmers, part of Careers in the Game Industry.
- [Voiceover] I hope this course has pointed out…what an exciting and rewarding career…being a game programmer can be.…A game can't exist, let alone be a hit,…without the hard work and skill of the game programmers.…I've already talked about the various languages and skills…needed by game programmers.…However, I wanted to leave you with some actionable task…that will get you started towards a career…in game programming immediately.…First, check out our library of courses…that focus on game programming,…game engine scripting,…and introductory courses to various programming languages.…
Some courses I would recommend you take a look at are:…Unreal Essential Training by Craig Barr,…C# Essential Training by David Gassner,…Scripting Unity with C# by Kelley Hecker,…and Creating Mobile Games with Unity, also by Kelley Hecker.…I think you'll find all these courses…to be great jumping-on points…to learning the programming languages,…skills and techniques required by game programmers.…In addition to these videos,…I'd recommend you look into gamedev.net,…
