I talk a lot to developers who have made games before. But what if you are just starting out?

Do you know the difference between a game designer and a game developer? If you don’‘t, don’‘t worry! On November 6th, Microsoft Visual Academy will be running a Jump Start training to explain game development roles and take a look at some of my favorite game development tools.

We’ll talk about everything you need to get started. From the art and sound, to the design and development, and lots more. You might be surprised at how easy it is to get started!
