i`m still a marketer for the year to come, then i`m throwing away the tie. I want to invent stuff, help people ... have a job that i have fun doing.
so i`m recycling myself into programming and for next semester i need to make a choice to specialize myself in one of the languages offered in my University courses.
That would be Java, C++ or C#
i`m an addict gamer, played rpg, 1st person shooter, startegies, LOL even the boring Sims series.(no offense to those who like it, personnal opinion) so why not go that way.
i`m just wondering what are the main languages used in the gaming industry ?
i`ve look around and saw that EA and Ubisoft are using C# alot and i know that the android platform is using java.
the future job i will maybe looking for is more with the 3d engin, AI, anything that is programming.
and no i won`t limit myself to those languages, python looks popular for online apps, just want to make a good choice for a solid fondation for a fresh startup. i`m aiming the gaming industry, but who knows where the future brings us. been in the IT industry for the past 15 years, maybe some contacts will have a job for me, but i rather change everything. that offer will be my last resort.
anyways, any suggestion ? any of you guys work for a gaming company ? where did you start?
