I teach coding at Red River College. I’ve been at the college for almost 12.5. Although I’ve learned a lot over this time, this learning has been almost exclusivly related to teaching and web development (and outside of work, parenting and open government).
It’s time to step a bit of my comfort zone: I’m going to learn modern game development.
So, okay, it’s not too far outside my comfort zone. It’s still tech. It’s still coding. But it feels like a different world.
It’s also a return to the math and physics of my engineering days, and to coding with C++, which has changed significantly in the 15 years I’ve been away from the language. There’s metric ton of learning to do. The goal is to distill this learning down to a collection of college level game development courses.
I’ll be documenting my learning here. Join me.
(The idea of documenting “learning in public” was inspired by the work of Tania Rascia.)
