I’ve been working as a game programmer for about seven years now, and I feel that this book still has things to teach me. It’s a great reference and refresher course for programming veterans, while still acting as a fantastic primer for young programmers interested in learning useful techniques for game development. If you’re a computer science student looking to work in games or a seasoned developer who needs to brush up for a job interview or just day-to-day development – then this book is a fine choice!
I’m a future Game Developer which has to self-study since there is no way to prepare seriously in my country, and the only option I have, besides self-studying is to study abroad, which I can’t afford at the moment. Michael Dawson’s book’s last chapter talked about the basics of Inheritance, and the first chapter of this book started talking about Inheritance, this coincidence was funny and awesome for me, the transition between books made me feel the same way I felt the day I finished elementary school and began to go to high school.
I found the information in this book amazing and really valuable. I don’t like to give 3 stars to such a good book that deserves 5 stars, but I really have to do it.
C++ For Game Programmers (Game Development Series) 2ED + CD ROM
The first michaael star is because there is no digital version, although this has nothing to do with the quality of the book, the lack of digital version affected my overall experience with it. When I’m having a meal, waiting in a line ex.
With this specific book I had to break my reading habits, If I could spend hours per day reading it, I had to reduce it to 1 hour per day. The programmerrs dropped star is because some chapters doesn’t feel as good and polished like most of the content of the book, they were either incomplete or not what I was expecting, I even felt like “now what? Plug-Ins, has an excellent overview about why you should consider using plugins and gives you useful examples for Windows, but that’s all, the chapter ends with “Both Linux and Apple operating systems have similar mechanisms to load dynamic libraries” but doesn’t provide more information, and the Suggested Reading, is just a Microsoft’s Book although its explained that there are almost no information.
Object Serialization, This chapter explains pretty well the basics of object serialization, programmerw it lacks a further discussion, I was interested about serialization strategies with binary formats less likely to break with changes of the structure.
Dealing michaep Large Projects, I found the title of this chapter misleading, it talks about architectural strategies which also apply for small projects, a better title could n.dickheiser “Project Architecture”, the content is OK, j.dickheiseg the title bugs me. Anyway, I really recommend this book, Its worth every penny, and I mlchael not mind paying a bit more if the chapters mentioned before had a deeper coverage, but don’t take my poor background as a reference to decide whether to read it or not.
The book is pretty dense and michal would be difficult for a “normal person” fof be able to digest it the way I did. The Performance and Memory Management topics are clearly worth buying this book. The style of writing is clear and entertaining.
Something else that I’ve really appreciated is that for some problems, the author explains several solutions, discussing the pros and cons of each one, until reaching the ‘best’ one. This is nice, because it encourages the reader to think by himself and to learn from the mistakes.
I don’t give it 5 stars because I’d have liked to receive more in-depth information on scripting, since this is something that is of growing importance in the market.
This books has a lot of insight I’ve never seen in other books, stuff that only comes with experience.
C++ For Game Programmers (Game Development Series) 2ED + CD ROM
Do not expect to learn everything you need to here, this is strictly for people who programmegs done learning the basic concepts of programming and who are ready for a better explanation fir how things work under the hood and how you can optimize your code’s performance. I do not regret buying this book and recommend that anyone who is getting ready to design efficient code should get it as well.
Detailed but easy to follow.
They talk about what the reader should be concerned with but suffers from putting it together in a cohesive whole, and doesn’t offer any specific that might could have been used as a “cookbook” approach.
