Course Gaming Full Stack Junior Expert | GAMING & VIRTUAL REALITY duration Online
The video games market is constantly growing thanks to the presence of large software houses and the increasing presence of independent developers who, with medium and small teams, are able to offer fantastic gaming experiences.
The development of games itself is today made much easier by the presence of dedicated development environments and frameworks that will allow fans, even those without a programming background, to approach the world of videogames development.
In particular, the use of blockchain technology will significantly allow the transfer of the world of video games from hardware to the cloud.
Summary of Contents
You have an idea for a video game you'd like to create but you don't have the necessary programming skills?
What is the right way to turn an idea into a video game and launch it on the market?
It is with these questions in mind that this course was born: it aims to address the study of the various components of a game with a practical experience, starting from the familiarization with the Engine to the development through the Blueprints of Unreal Engine, from the movement of simple geometric shapes to the realization of a real game.
The topics that will be addressed in this course will follow the creation of a series of small games step by step, in order to closely analyze the problems and see how they fit into the development through the framework Unreal Engine 4.
With this course students will acquire experience in using and understanding the technologies that give life to a game and how these can be used also outside of the gaming area.
