Opinions on PhoneGap?

07 February 2013 - 06:57 PM

I'm trying to decide what I want to use to develop my next app.  I used to use gamesalad, but I find it too limiting.  I don't plan on just making games, so I want to have access to the camera/location/the web.  If anyone has other suggestions I'd love to here them.

 

I was going to just use XCode/Java, but I'd rather not have to do a lot of work to make my app cross platform.


Computer Science vs CS w/ concentration in game development major?

05 February 2013 - 09:25 AM

I'm attending NCSU and I'm in my second semester of freshmen year. I know I want to do Computer Science but I'm not sure if I want to do the game development concentration or not. The main difference is in the junior and senior years when you choose what CSC classes to take to fill the needed number of credits in CSC, you take gaming related classes.  You still get all the important classes for solid foundation in computer science. I'm sure having the concentration would help me at least a little for getting a job in the industry, but I'm curious as to how much?  Also, would it hurt my chances of getting a non-gaming related job if I can't get one in the industry?
