Course Description

This is a one day crash course for anyone that is interested in starting to build their own games. During the day you will learn the basics, and build a classic arcade action game. Once you have the basics down, you’ll have plenty of time to make the game your own.

You’ll not only learn about game development but also learn basic programming in JavaScript and gain insights into how it is to work with games. The skills you learn will not only be useful in game development, but anywhere you can use JavaScript.

The game development course is one of our highest ranked courses from previous Tjejer Kodar camps. Expect an intense day with lots of fun, lots of games and to meet new like-minded friends.

At 16.00 we will celebrate with an after-work at Paradox and an opportunity to network with interesting people in the game industry. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

We are extremely proud to be able to provide this course free of charge for you. However, there’s lots of time and energy spent in planning this event for you, and food and lecturers cost. We will therefore debit all late cancellations (later than two weeks in advance) with 800 SEK if you don’t have a valid excuse that you can prove, such as sickness or VAB.

Who is this for?

This is a session for beginners but if you have never programmed before we expect you to book a few hours in your calendar for some pre-studies provided by us – this is so that we can hit the ground running fast. If concepts like, variables, loops and if-statements are nothing new to you (in any programming language) – then you should be all set.
