Every game developer on this planet is entitled to the very best learning and resource information on their craft.. and this information needs to be free to use and easily accessible.
The community needs your help to build this resource library.
As a developer of any skill level
sharing just one tip or one technique that you have learned can help thousands of others become better. Even beginners can share information that is of use to other beginners!
We created the Game Development Library
(GDL) Project as a way to capture in one place all the great articles and helpful bits of information available online related to making games.
Literally thousands of great articles on game development are scattered on blogs throughout the net and you'll never know about them. Or even worse, if those blogs go offline they'll be lost forever. Join us in building up our library of both new articles and republished information.
The foundation of our project is sharing
. You know what it's like to struggle and I'm sure there are still future challenges to solve that could use a little help from your peers. Every programmer stands on the shoulders of countless people whose work got them to where they are today.
Make sharing your mantra, and do it without fear. So many developers think they aren't enough of an expert to put your work out there.
That's absolutely not true. Every single person has some level of experience they can share with others.
Many of the ideas that drive game development come in cycles and get recycled and refined over and over again. In fact, we have articles in our existing archive that still get widely used today. Techniques that you have picked up can be used again by other developers.
