Video Game Development. From Noobgrammer to Programmer - Part 1 - Greetings and welcome to the first of a many-part tutorial series designed to take you from a “hello world” jabroni to a game programmer with the confidence to tackle any challenge that might be foolish enough to face you. This series will be targeted at people who have a small amount of programming experience (those who understand functions, variables, and objects) and are having a hard time making the leap to something more complex.. As I was in this category not but a few years ago, I vividly remember the difficulties moving from basic comp-sci projects to full games and I hope to make your transition easier than mine. If you don't feel that you belong in this category, despair not! Check out my upcoming “education roadmap” entry for a guide to get you from noobgrammer to programmer.

If you find yourself confused by a tutorial or would like me to cover a specific subject, shoot me an email at or leave a comment and I'll be happy to oblige.
