This is a great blog on the topic of what it takes to become a video game programmer.
Sigh, the author (Bobby Anguelov) doesn’t mention Zulama’s video game academy, but it’s our job to get the word out!
Bobby’s closing quote:
As a programmer your education will never end, there will always be things that you may not know and have yet to learn, new technologies to master and so on but it is essential that you know the fundamentals. Just like building a house, you need to ensure that the foundations are strong before you start building upon them. Just like a bad foundation will make a bad house, bad fundamentals will make a bad programmer.
