5 Day Net Yaroze Games Programming Course
Net Yaroze Games Programming Course
September 21st - 25th 1998.
The aim of this 5 day course is to get people new to the Yaroze up and running and getting results in a short time working in groups. It will cover introduction to the Yaroze and implementation of 2D game features over 2 days, and implementation of 3D game features in 3 days.
Whilst we will expose applicants to much of the nitty gritty of Yaroze programming, this course will simplify Yaroze programming by use of specially developed libraries that sit on top of the Yaroze functions. (For current Yaroze members familiar with the ‘Passmore Tutorial’ this course will simplify and significantly extend the tutorial).
Students will be expected to work in groups and will be encouraged to communicate with each other before the course to facilitate thinking about design and collaboration. A course pack of preliminary notes will be also distributed some time before the course starts.
Anybody can apply to come on the course but students will be expected to have a general knowledge of C programming ideally to the level of being happy with structs and pointers.
Our lab has 15 Yaroze machines attached to P166 MMX PCs. It also has another 15 P200 machines for running 3D Studio. We have 2 copies of 3D Studio R4, 5 copies of 3D Studio MAX R1.2 and ten copies of 3D Studio MAX R2.
Note that we aim to get 30 students on the course to work in groups of two or three ie: there is one Yaroze machine and one 3D MAX machine per two students.
The course will last for five days from the 21-25 September inclusive and will run for at least 6 hours per day including lectures and lab sessions, although there will be some access to equipment outside these times.
The cost of the course is £164.50 which includes VAT (i.e. £140 +£24.50 VAT). The cost covers tuition, laboratory sessions, course notes (some printed and some distributed electronically) but doesn’t cover printing (program listings etc), disks, food, refreshment, or accommodation. The course will only run if we get at least 25 applicants, otherwise money will be refunded in full.
This course is aimed at students and hobbyists and thus the low price (Low price you say! Well, it is a special short course price, a typical Middlesex short course is around £646.25 for 3 days!)
