Here’s what you’ll learn:

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

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.”

Being a coder isn’t just about coding.

We’re excited to announce our new Kickstarter: Complete Guide to Self-Promotion for Techies and Startups. We need your help to make a course that teaches coders soft skills. ‘Soft skills’ include teamwork, communication and management skills.

If you want to start your own coding business, there’s much more to it than the technical aspects of the job.

We want to teach coders how to stand out in the tech industry and successfully start their own business. Even if you don’t want to make your own company, this course will teach you skills that will make you invaluable wherever you work.

We’ve identified 6 key topics that can strengthen the core of your coding business:

  • The psychology of entrepreneurship
  • Fusing soft skills and software development
  • The code of human interaction
  • The art of persuasion
  • Expanding creativity
  • Mastering team dynamics

We don’t believe in hypotheticals.

Our course will provide you with practical examples of issues you’ll face in the coding industry. We based our curriculum on proven psychological methods and on our experiences in the coding industry.

If you take this course, you will become part of a community of students supported by us. You’ll go from talented coder to business champion. Visit our Kickstarter’s page to get involved.
