You’re invited! Come to our JSON Data webinar.

Do you want IN on the Number 1 way of transferring data? Join programming expert Nimish Narang for a 1-hour session on how to work with JSON. Register here for just 10 dollars.

Why JSON?

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a data format commonly used to store and exchange data. Because it is so user-friendly, most iOS apps (including Facebook and Twitter!) send data to their web services in JSON format.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

– How to parse incoming JSON data to be used in Xcode projects
– How to make URL requests

But wait, there’s MORE! If you enroll in this webinar, you’ll get 2 FREE courses from Mammoth Interactive. First, you’ll get our NEW Introduction to SpriteKit course, where you learn how to build 3 games in SpriteKit. Second, you’ll get our 77-hour course on how to build virtual reality games with Blender and Unity3D!

Reserve your spot today for just 10 dollars.

Learn Unreal with our new book series 📖

It’s that time of year… we at Mammoth Interactive have published new books! Available in both Paperback and eBook format, check out “Introduction to Unreal” and its sequel “Build 6 Games in Unreal.”

The Unreal Engine is a powerful program for building games. Learn how to navigate the Unreal editor by building a Coin Collector game!

First we set up the Coin Collector game’s design in Unreal. You learn how to position a camera in a game so that the user sees the game from your desired viewpoint. We make Blueprints to save objects. We give shape and color to the characters and objects in the game.

Then we use C++ scripts to give the game custom functionality. You learn how to process collisions and keep track of the number of times two objects collide. We make a coin disappear when the player touches it. We add a text box to the game to display the score. As well, we enable the player to restart the game with a hotkey.

By the end of this book, you know how to create a game from scratch that responds to user input through keyboard controls.

 

Learn how to navigate the Unreal editor while building 6 basic games. This book is an extension of “Introduction to Unreal.”

Looks like we’ll all be coders soon.

Everyone is worried about losing their job to machines. You may have heard of the robots that replaced burger flippers in California. But are all of our jobs really at risk?

While some jobs will be lost to Artificial Intelligence (AI), others will be created by it. A statistics evaluation published last month from the United States Department of Labor ranked software developers on the projected “Occupations with the most job growth” for 2024. The employment count of software developers in the US is predicted to increase by 18.8%. The median annual wage in 2016 for this occupation was $100,080.

Evidently, it’s looking good for people studying software development. As FastCompany says, coding is coming to every industry you can think of. There’s even a management agency for coding talent.

But you don’t need to join a coding agency to be a coder. Odds are, as technology progresses, you’ll have to incorporate coding as part of your job.

Luckily, learning to code doesn’t mean you have to go back to university for 4 years. Online learning makes programming easy to learn from home. As we embrace that we’ll have to learn new skills to keep up with technology, we’ll be able to work with innovation rather than against it to make life more stable and efficient. 👍
