Coleg y Cymoedd have teamed up with Appening Rhondda to provide an opportunity for learners to experience the Tech Industry through Game Development.
What's it all about?
Appening Rhondda will be hosting Game Development Weekend's during 2018 at their offices in Llantrisant.
These will take place on
Their specialist staff will support learners and provide them with access to kit and equipment so that they can take a brief from a client, take the brief and work it up and then create it.
At the end of the weekend, they present back the final product to the client. If it is accepted the game is submitted to Google App for inclusion on their free game app site. The work weekend is Friday afternoon until Monday afternoon.
Working hours on Saturday and Sunday are 09:00 to 17:00.
Are spaces limited?
We expect to accept 5-6 learners from all over Cymoedd’s campuses for each weekend, and link them up with an additional 3-4 Uni students to join them. The reason for this is that it helps diversify skills but also introduces learners to Uni students studying game design degrees. They will get the benefit of speaking with peers who are a couple years further down the road as well as working with professional developers. You will get to see the full life cycle of becoming a professional developer.
