BBC News recently ran a very interesting article about children aspiring to become game developers and programmers in the future.
Learning to write code early and getting to grips with the game-making process can be a greatly rewarding experience.
The article also makes a very valid point – playing games is very different to creating games! Starting to learn coding at an early age certainly is fantastic, but it’s never too late to learn a new skill.
Developing for big consoles like Xbox or Playstation is still relatively difficult for small game developers, however developing games for mobile devices is a different story.
…seeing a game through to completion is quite an achievement for anyone at any age.
We will be launching a competitively priced app development bootcamp course in early 2016 which will focus on creating a simple game for iPhone, so stay tuned!
