In a first of its kind offering for those outside MIT, the MIT Game Lab has opened registration for Game Development for Software Engineers, a five-day course August 5-9 on the MIT campus.
The class welcomes registrants from any industry or professional background with a software engineering component, though the course itself is not programming-heavy. It is the first time the Lab will make its software, prototyping, and project management best practices — honed over the development of dozens of experimental games — widely available to those outside the Lab. Over the week, participants will conceive and develop prototype games in small teams, with access to modern game development tools and talks and guidance from the mentors of the award-winning MIT Game Lab.
Registration is open now and will close in early summer.
