Microsoft DirectX Training Course.


DirectX12 

DirectX 12 is an expert API which builds on knowing the ins & outs of DirectX 11. DirectX 12 is an extremely low-level API designed for graphic experts who have a solid understanding of the architecture of modern GPU hardware, and can essentially write the DirectX 11 Runtime from scratch. Both DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 provide access to the same hardware features on Windows 10, but drive the hardware in different ways which can allow a well-optimized DirectX 12 engine to achieve much lower CPU overhead than in DirectX 11.

Version 1.0 of the Blue Chip Training and Consulting Corporate Video

Start-up Game Company in Sri Lanka.


Starting a business is always challenging. If that business is making a Game then you will face more additional challenges in a Country like Sri Lanka. First challenge is finding right skill set for the company. Because making a Game requires both design and development skills. Majority of developers in Sri Lanka focus on software development for enterprise applications. But game development requires working knowledge of game engine or any game making tool. If we unable to find right talent then we need to do training to update their skill set.

Next we need artists. For 2D game 2D artist and for 3D game 3D modeling artists.

For making a complete game would require at least one from following disciplines.

Game Designer – To make the game addictive.

2D Artist – For 2D games

3D Artist – For 3D games.

Concept Artist. – To Come up with unique character and environment ideas.

Game Developers – Based on the technology or Platform that Game going to publish (IOS, Android, Xbox, PS, Web, Desktop, VR )

Game Tester – To find any bug and finalize game play.

Project Manager – Manage Game Development life cycle and meet deadlines.

Then how make money from making Games. One is you can get games outsource from US or European based companies and clients. Other is your company can develop a Game and publish in to Market Place.

So that was summary for setting up a Game Company in Sri Lanka. If want know more information or consultancy on Game development you can contact me on via email or voice.
