Hello Gamedev.net ,

I am a 23 year old graduate in Information Technology from India.
I have recently started doing programming and I want to choose a career in computer games. so I have joined in a start up company with four members and learning programming and graphics on my own from ebooks and net tutorials.

Is the thing which I am doing is correct?
can anyone do this alone?
Because there are no trainers here I am alone learning the whole day searching over the internet for tutorials on programming.A group of three people who actually work in other companies come in the weekends and work in my company have worked a small letter project for children on IPAD that enables to learn the letter by tracing them. I am not into any project but he may put into after some days.Till now he said me practice some c++,data structures and opengl stuff.

waiting for your reply.

Have you checked out Stanford's courses on Programming Methodology, Abstractions and Paradigms? You should definitely follow those series, they're rock solid:



There's also tons of game design videos out there, e.g. the following:


- Awl you're base are belong me! -

- I don't know, I'm just a noob -

Another vote of confidence from me regarding those Stanford courses. They are fantastic.

I'd also suggest taking a look at the Unity game development engine. It's free, very user friendly, and there are many books and online tutorials available to help you learn.

For more info on how to break into the games industry check out www.ineedtomakegames.com

Best,

Destin
