Vancouver Film School (VFS) is pleased to announce that it will be adding a brand-new, one-year program to its educational roster. Starting March 2014, VFS will offer Programming for Games, Web & Mobile, a course that 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.
