C++ Game Programming: Algorithms and AI

Course Description

Open the door to the vast world of programming and development by learning the syntax of C++. Develop games with 2D graphics and custom controls throughout the first week as you master this essential programming language.

After your games are fleshed out, make them smarter with artificial intelligence and implement algorithms crucial to game development, like pathfinding and map generation. Take your games from casually playable to multifaceted interactive experiences. Whether you choose to build games or apps or just want head start for college, C++ can get you there.

Prerequisite: Proficiency in algebra: knowledge of variables, integers, and absolute values, and ability to evaluate algebraic expressions using order of operations and the distributive property.
