DevCon Game Development Camp in cooperation with International Game Developers Association (IGDA) Manila Chapter
When: 02-03 Sept. 2011, on-site registration starts 8am
Where: TechBar, i1 Bldg, Asiatown IT Park, Lahug, Cebu City
Important Note: Please bring your own machine.
Welcome to our FREE two-day game development bootcamp
Limited slots only: 25
Register at: http://cot.ag/pmeIO1
Participants will be able to create a game in two days using C++
Understand various programming concepts that are fundamental to making games:
- the game loop
- layer management
- vector math
- simple game physics
- input handling
- collision detection and response
This event is specifically for programmers who haven't had game projects before, or programmers who have attempted to learn it in the past, but found that without sufficient support and mentoring they were unable to connect all the pieces of these highly complex but exciting applications.
- laptop (we don't really need that beastly graphics power; a laptop without one will suffice)
- Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition installed (install VC++ 2008 Express and SFML http://www.sfml-dev.org/ beforehand; run a simple program and see if it works with your machine)
- notebook and pen
- basic C++ knowledge
- learning and listening mode
The game to be made in the bootcamp is very simple. Note that this boot camp focuses on the fundamentals. Don't expect to make the next Starcraft or MMO here. ;)
