Course Gaming Full Stack Junior Professional | GAMING duration Online

The videogames 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.

What is the right way to turn an idea into a video game and launch it on the market?
It is with this question 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 development of a real game.
The topics that will be addressed in this course will follow the development of a series of small games step by step, in order to closely analyze the problems and see how they fit into the development with the framework Unreal Engine 4.
With this course the student 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.
