What you’ll learn
Learn to code in the most popular program language in the world, jаvascript, in a fun way
Learn how to use the in-demand WebGL Open Source library ThreeJS
Add vital skills to your CV
Learn key coding techniques by creating fun games.
Learn to adapt freely available 3D assets so they are game ready.
The jаvascript programming language is probably the most popular programming language in the world. Companies all around the globe require developers who are proficient with this language. In this course, I teach you about the language then apply your new skills to create three games. Before you write your first game you’ll use your new jаvascript skills and the popular Open Source library, ThreeJS to create several simple online 3D apps. Once you know enough about the ThreeJS library it’s time to create your first game. The first game is a simple game. Here you’ll learn about loading assets, moving assets, user input, and collision testing. The course builds on the skills you learn. The next game is a shooter and you learn how to animate a player avatar, how to control NPC characters so they patrol on a random path using navigation meshes and path-finding. You’ll learn how to control the avatar with a keyboard or gamepad and on mobile using an on-screen controller. You’ll learn how to fire bullets at the enemy and add AI to the NPCs so they fire back. All the key ingredients of a shooter game. The last game uses the physics engine CannonJS to control the motion of balls in an Eight-ball Pool game. Along the way, you’ll learn to use the 3D application program Blender to prepare your 3D assets for the games you develop. Once you’ve completed the course you’ll be super ready for any challenges an employer throws your way when writing jаvascript code. But the main thing is you’ll have developed your much in-demand skills while having fun making games.
