In this Introduction to C++ Programming for Unreal Game Development Training Course, there are no formal prerequisites.


This training course is intended for anyone who wants to gain in-depth knowledge about C++ programming in game development.

C++ Programming for Unreal Game Development Training Course Overview 

C++ programming is a powerful programming language. Organisations use C++ programming for developing games, operating systems, and so on. This training course will help you to make GUI-based applications, web browsers, and banking applications. Possessing the skills and abilities to use C++ programming efficiently will lead you to attain many greater designations such as programmers, game developers, web developers, and numerous job titles.

In this 2-day C++ Programming for an Unreal Game Development training course, delegates will learn how to build a solid understanding of the basics of C++ programming. During this training course, delegates will learn how to handle vectors like normalisation, arctangent, and work. During this training course, they will obtain an insight into gaining the necessary skills for initialising OpenGL like setting up the OpenGL Window, the OpenGL context, initialising GLEW, and rendering a frame. Our highly expert trainer with abundant knowledge will teach the delegates to uncover the matrices and transformation.

Delegates will also cover the following topics such as:

  • Loading image files
  • Drawing sprite
  • Real-time and game time
  • Logic as a function of delta time
  • Types of game objects

At the end of this training course, delegates will be able to integrate game objects into the game loop to control the overall flow of the entire game. They will also be able to draw 3D meshes to upgrade the quality of drawing efficiency and accuracy.
