Know the skill you want to hone for your job?
Want to create your own animated game? You can create a game as beautiful as Tundra Terror with our Learn Game Development with Phaser course. We just released two new lessons this week that hone in on programming animation and camera effects into your games.
Animating game characters (also known as “sprites”) are key to adding an extra layer of visual vibrance to your game. Our new lesson on camera effects will teach you visual tricks like fadeout, camera shake, and much more. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to design and program an equally delightful game like Codey IV: Tundra Terror.
As the title of her fifth studio album suggests, Taylor Swift was born in 1989. In the years since, she’s had one of the most successful music careers ever, winning every trophy, plaque, and Moonman there is to win.
Another post-1989 development: Machine Learning has entered the mainstream.
In 1982, a group of Carnegie Mellon computer scientists wanted to check the inventory of their soda vending machine without leaving their desks. They came up with a solution that was revolutionary at the time—they connected the machine to the internet.
In 2018, you don’t have to be a computer science PhD to set up a smart vending machine. You can thank Limor “Ladyada” Fried for that change. She’s the founder and CEO of Adafruit Industries, a company that makes hardware programming and the Internet of Things accessible to everyone.
Increasingly, having technical skills, including coding knowledge is a prerequisite for the working world, including in the fields of marketing, journalism and telecoms.
Online coding school Codecademy is launching a new course that will help you build ‘natural, voice-first Alexa experiences that feel like talking to a friend who understands you’. No more misinterpreted commands or evil laughs, hopefully.
