Why this is a 5 store course:
*Ben clearly enjoys the delivery, and is genuinely engaging.
*Probably the most interesting c++ tutorials on the web, they are normally extremely dry.
*Teaching standard easily on par (if not in excess of) some of the best Higher Education tutors I’ve met, I say this as a 3rd year Game Dev student and a former trainer myself.
*Learning resources are crystal clear, he puts in the time to get them right and it make’s them a valuable resource.
*The scope of the course is shaping up to be excellent; will update upon release of final sections.
*Ben explains the why of what we’re doing. This seems obvious but it’s something that is often missed when teaching coding / Game Dev and it really ensures you know when to apply the techniques for yourself rather than just being able to copy the code he shows on screen.
*Sessions are short and the learning comes in excellent chunks, you can pick it up, do a session or two then put it down to let things consolidate if you wish.
*Coding / Dev concepts can be difficult to get your head around something, MANY tutors expect that people will simply be able to interpret and make sense of information because it was given to them, this is especially true in coding. Ben seems to remember what it was like to be learning this all for the first time, he remembers the confusion, and he allows for it, looping back to complex topics a few times to ensure you’ve grasped it.
*Value for money. At university I spend approximately £1500 on per module to learn Game Development and this course has more content than any I’ve experience so far.
There are probably more reasons but I’ll keep this updated as I progress along.
