Let’s get to coding
Being a game developer is not easy. This requires a lot of knowledge and technical know-how. Moreover, in the beginning, it takes time and money. Luckily for you small and relatively new developers, there is something to help you out. Today, Code Coven and Facebook Gaming announced that, for the second year in a row, they will be launching the Game Developer Program. The program is designed to offer mentorship, structured advice, and yes, even financial support to novice game developers.
Tara Mustapha, CEO of Code Coven, says: “We are thrilled to partner with Facebook Gaming for the second time. The course enables people from marginalized communities to enter and be adopted within the gaming industry.”
The program runs from June 13 to August 26. Of course, the program has points on which it will work with novice developers. From learning to code to starting a studio and more. The goal of the program is to establish these often overlooked talents within the gaming community. In turn, allowing them to set up their own studios or seek funding for projects.
Last year, the program supported over 450 game developers from 35 countries. In addition, this support allows developers to create their own studios or projects. Additionally, the program let many newbie developers negotiate deals with publishers.
Of course, the program is now open and accepting applications. Starting this summer, the program lasts three months. So, those interested in the program can register on the Code Coven website here.
