In this course I’ll start out your C++ journey from the beginning and move you through advanced whilst moving towards making a little dungeon game.
Everything is in here from the very starting points, so the course is good for beginners or those returning to C++ who want to brush up on their skills. At the college I used to teach at, this content would cover subjects C++ 1, C++ 2 and Basic Game Dev with C++ (each of those subjects cost like $1.5k AUD). If you are studying at a Uni or College, this course makes a good companion resource for those you with C++ subjects.
Through out the course I provide project check points and reference projects if you get lost along the way. This course runs a bit over 16hrs, so take your time on it. Here is a list of some of the things we run through on this course:
- variables and math
- input and output
- if statement, while and for loops
- arrays, 1d and 2d
- classes, inheritance and polymorphism
- pointers and dynamic memory
- rendering and animation
- basic 2d game logic
- and a bunch more!
C++ is still very relevant in many software engineering jobs but also to lots of game engines such as Unreal. Its a good starting language for many looking to get into software development of some kind.
Let’s make a sweet dungeon game!
