how to learn game programming well?

Recommended Posts

1. If possible, take a class in programming. This may or may not be possible for you, but if it is I'd recommend it.


2. Find yourself some good reading materials; preferably a good book on your chosen programming language, but online articles and tutorials can work as well. Read them, and practice what you're reading about with plenty of small programs. Game programming is just programming, so it doesn't matter if not everything you're working on as a beginner is actually a game.


3. As Tom says: practice, practice, practice. You get good by actually trying things out and solving problems. Try to solve them yourself, and only ask for help when you're really stuck; if you have to ask for help explain the problems you're having, what you've tried, and what you think might be the problem so that people can help you to learn better. You'll make a lot of mistakes, but that's a good thing - mistakes teach you what to avoid in future.


4. Don't waste your time (and ours!) making crap posts like "hard coding!"
