Software training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. last week released its "Mobile Game Development With Corona SDK," a course designed for beginning mobile game developers, teaching the fundamentals of this user-friendly development framework.
The Corona Software Development Kit (SDK) allows users to access the power of C++/Open GL through Lua, a language layered over C++ which uses a more user-friendly set of commands. Corona allows programmers to work across both iOS and Android operating systems, allowing applications to control the full range of mobile device features, including the camera, accelerometer, magnetometer, video player, and GPS.
With InfiniteSkills' "Mobile Game Development With Corona SDK," new developers can quickly learn the core concepts and techniques of this fun and powerful development tool and begin programming their own games in a matter of hours.
Course author J. A. Whye has dedicated his career programming across a wide variety of languages and platforms, having first learned to program on the Apple II in 1984. He has recorded literally hundreds of training videos, and when he isn't training, he maintains websites posting tips and tricks for Corona game developers and the Outlaw tools website.
Whye's decades of programming and equally extensive training experience make "Mobile Game Development With Corona SDK," a power-packed guide to getting started in mobile game development.
The course starts by covering the basics of how to program in Lua, sticking with the important commands for using it with the Corona SDK. Then Whye gets started exploring all the elements of creating a game, including animation and images, scene management, sound, and tap and touch events, leading up to an introduction to Box 2D Physics.
The course then brings all these elements together as students create a physics-based game, a space shooter game, and a puzzle game, each emphasizing different aspects of game development.
InfiniteSkills offers its Mobile Game Development With Corona SDK Training Video either as a DVD or a direct download from the company website at a retail price of $99.95. All InfiniteSkills titles and formats are compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems, and shipping is available around the globe. Additionally, InfiniteSkills tutorials are supported by project files which correspond to examples in the videos, allowing users to work alongside their instructors right on their computer or iPad.
