Vancouver Film School is finishing 2013 with a bang, by launching a brand-new, world-class program!
Programming for Games, Web & Mobile is all about becoming a better, smarter, more versatile and hireable developer. This one-of-a-kind program teaches individuals how to create and bend programs; to develop software that is impressive, innovative, and entertaining. Students graduate with a high-powered portfolio along with the skills to impress professionals and recruiters from an incredible range of industries.
“Industry leaders have been asking us to teach programming for years, because they need VFS-trained programmers and they need them now,” says Dave Warfield, Head of Programming for Games, Web & Mobile.
The program starts with foundation skills in math, design, production, and programming, before progressing to front-end interface and mobile development for iOS and Android. Students build on this core knowledge with increasingly complex courses on interface development and programming, and finish with advanced classes on shaders, network programming, social integration, and cloud-based applications.
Like all VFS’s other 12 programs, career preparation is an integral part of the coursework, from presentation skills and portfolio development, to studio tours and networking events. It’s every advantage students will need to succeed as they launch their careers.
Programming for Games, Web & Mobile begins March 2014 and has already generated tons of buzz among industry leaders and alumni. We encourage everyone to check out the program page and see what it’s all about. The program is especially relevant for Game Design, Digital Design, and Sound Design for Visual Media students and grads looking to add a competitive edge to their skill sets.
A big congratulations to all the instructors, industry, alumni, and students who contributed to the making of this incredible program, and we can’t wait to see the amazing results!
