Hello, my name is Aditya Sadhula and I am working on developing and programming for games, having 2+ years experience. Now I want to learn more about Sound Development, Game Audio, Audio Programming, 3D Graphics Programming. Please tell me some of the best sites I can check and especially some offline resources/trainings that can help me gain some good experience.

Thanks in advance for all you members' help in this regard.

Thanks, Aditya

Hello Aditya,

I am unsure what you seek. We use SDL libraries for sound implementation, but that's just one of a ton of possible solutions (like openAL, gstreamer, etc.)

So generally, I would suggest you think of something you would like to program, than you check which library would fit best to the rest of the program you want to program and once you found the perfect library for sound implementation, you will surely find documentation on the libraries homepage.

I know, not much I tell you here, but I really don't know what you're searching for face-wink.png

Cheers

Hello Aditya,

If you just do a web search you can find several web resources. It is apt time now to upgrade yourself. The global gaming market was estimated at $36 billion in 2008 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 10.5 percent to reach $53.6 billion by 2012. The mobile and online gaming are relatively new segment in the global gaming arena, but have grown rapidly to account for 29 percent (mobile) and 24 percent (online) of global gaming revenues. Game consoles are evolving into multi-functional entertainment systems, offering multiplayer gameplay on the internet, internet browsing capability and options to play high definition movies. Most of the outsourcing contracts in Asia are finding their way to India.

I also highly recommend you attending the first and independent annual India Game Developer Summit to be held Saturday, 27 February 2010 in Bangalore. All the topics covered, speakers can be read in detail at http://www.gamedevelopersummit.com. Topcis covered include industry methodologies in game development, design, production, programming, visual arts and writing. The speakers are gurus on various subjects from mobile and indie games to MMOs and AAA games, from US etc. Plus there is focus on Gaming Careers/Jobs about plans employed in game development and operation studios in the U.S. and how they can be adopted in India. You can directly register at: http://www.gamedevelopersummit.com/registeronline. I did already with some good discounts.

Woot! Tarun Gupta
