Hey guys, so my name is Jake Thompson. I am wondering how hard is it to code and or script a simple code for a game. I am currently interested in loading maybe like LUA. I want to learn because I am currently interested in the computer and or computer science area of study in college. I am just wanting to know if it really hard. If it is hard what is hard about. I am pretty smart and usually get the hang of things pretty quickly. Also what kind of programming do you guys use?. I am wanting to know all about this and what is the average salary of a computer programmer. Like are coding languages harder then others. I am really know to programming and I really want to know all about this. Thanks guys!

The basics of coding a game are in Alice3. Then you can advance in Unreal Engine.:) However first of all you need a good knowledge of C++ or C# to gain computational thinking

Not only C++ nor C# can be uset to gain 'computational thinking'. Learning basics of Java and advancing in Unity is also an option

If you are good in logical thinking then you'll probably learn pretty fast. Programming is logical thinking. IF something is true do this ELSE do something else.Thats the most simple explanation of what programming but obviously a lot deeper then that :P If your not any good with being around a computer at all then definitely cant recommend trying it out, I dont believe theres a half way, you either completely love it, are absolutely hate it :P

As far is salary goes, in the netherlands start salary after finishing school for it is like 2.5k euros so pretty decent ^^

Here in Brazil they value a lot of developers in Unity, the company samsung here contracts with average values ​​between R$5k. Unity is very easy for anyone who is starting in the area and has a great demand in the labor market at least in the country where I live haha

For game developing i recommend you unity or unreal engine 4. Unity better for 2D and platform games, unreal for all the rest rsrsrsrs

I agree with mriaco, however, if you start with unity, and I think that you should (don't try to make a hit game in your first try, start with something achievable), learn one of the languages that it uses too alongside the unity tutorials.

You have great tutorials on c#, javascript in many websites, use them to your advantage.

"How Hard is it?" - this isn't hard, this is very easy. When u start learning some of language (e.g. C#, C++) you will understand how easy it is.

About Engine. I think u can start working with Unreal Engine, because this is the best on this moment.

Good Luck and the most important - Have Fun ^^

I'll offer some advice that someone once gave me. "No matter how skilled or experienced you are, you can still learn something new". In layman terms don't stop learning or studying the language that interests you because you may know how to do something, but someone may have figured out a better way to do it. I personally started learning vb.net just because I really liked the idea of creating GUI's and stuff like that.

I suggest researching object oriented programming and object programming, the differences between compiled languages and interpreted languages, the differences between programming languages and scripting languages...

Depending on the language you wanna learn you should look into the tutorials released by the company like java used to have the java sun tutorials, now they're the java tutorials by oracle or something..

Also Unity or unrealengine are good places to start and honestly you will never learn about computational thinking if you don't mess around with some code and find some shit out for yourself so you understand how it all works

What helps me today more than anything is understanding how something gets compiled down when programming multiple languages cuz it's really all the same shit lol

Once you learn one language it's really easy to use that knowledge to understand another language, and 9/10 of the languages to date use similar syntax, C# was made to be an easier version of java and I'm pretty sure both of them are programmed in C ? not sure about that but it just goes to show that they're all really just the same shit presented in different ways to do different things. For game programming I suggest learning C++, C# or Java and then using unity or some other premade game engine tool to make your game because it takes all the hard work out of it, and lets you concentrate on simply making your game

games are quite complicated depending on the type of game.. I would recommend at least an intermediate level of understanding in the programming language of choice that you want to use for your game development.. of course there are also free engines with scripting languages that let you jump right into it.

I learned java by starting a project and going from there. The best way to learn is from experience.

I don't think programming is hard. Everything else are hard, too.
Just follow your passion, do whatever you like first.
If you can't keep doing it in several months than you can change to the next passion to make a test.
Something, you think you are get lost but you can go through it.
Again, it's not hard. It's just required specific skills.

I think you shouldn't study something you aren't doing on yourself already. College is there to widen your horizon, not to start from scratch. At least i think so. So find something you like and commit to it!

hi Jake Thompson i advice you to try all type of codes c ,c++,c# java python all have the same basics but the code its pretty different and it requires more attention and more learning you can learn everything in the internet just with patience and with reserving time to this studies , good luck mate hope you the best
