If this is something a few people are interested in, I would like to facilitate a group learning about how to code and create computer games.
How this can work – we would follow the same course at the same pace, and have regular calls to go through course videos, explore what is possible, and create something unique together over time. I’ve a couple of Udemy courses in mind, but would be happy to look at alternative suggestions – and there may be some offered here, too.
This would be suitable for people new to either programming or computer graphics, as many courses cater for beginners. I’ve done this with friends and family before, and it can work well for groups of people from different backgrounds and levels of experience.
There are several reasons you might enjoy this sort of course even if you’re not someone who regularly plays games yourself – it’s creative and fun, and it can be as intellectually stimulating as you want it to be.
These take you through the experience of creating several different types of games, explaining what to do and giving you plenty of opportunity to experiment and find out more about the parts you enjoy most. By the end you have a good understanding of how a game is made and the skills to make (even publish, which I’ve not tried out) your own.
If you like the look of these but would prefer to wait then please let me know so that I know how much interest there is here, and I can keep an eye out for offers. Udemy often has big sales on most of its courses (including a New Year one ending tonight).
Let me know here or directly if you like the sound of this, and let’s see if we can get a group together.
Has anyone been part of a learning group like this before?
