As many of you know GG|Interactive as a subsidiary of GarageGames has developed curriculum to allow any middle school, high school, or community college to teach game design and game programming. We call the program DevPro: Computer Science in Game Design.
We are currently running a promotion that allows any school to offer the full curriculum to as many students as they would like at no cost for their first school year. I would like to invite all of you within the GarageGames community to take the opportunity to view the course and to provide us with your thoughts and feedback.
I know that many of the developers within the Torque and GarageGames community did not have the opportunity to learn game programming or game development in middle or high school and that many within the community are self-taught. We are looking for your expertise and for your specific point of view in looking at this course content for a new generation of game developers taking their very first game design and game programming classes.
GG|Interactive has a number of schools that are going to launch this course in January but a much larger (and growing) group of schools that will start their free year in the fall of 2015. So the feedback you provide to us today will be reviewed and will make a real difference in the course for future students. And who knows, maybe you will even learn something new!
To view a web demo version of the course you can go here.
However to take full advantage of the course that includes practical exercises using our design tool 3 Step Studio and C# code exercises using Visual Studio and Mono Game you will want to go here (or click the button below) and register so you can download all of the resources and the full course content.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback for this course!
