About this post
I just started to learn Game Development, and decided to start write my personal blog about it. So there you can find information(resources, blogs, courses, books) that i've gathered and my personal problems with learning)
I'm a student in the Lyceum BSU now. Just finished with preparation to exams and decided to learn more about GameDev. I already have experiance in Computer Science, but not commercial. My English level now is abot B2/C1.
Do research and find resources about GameDev
Realize, that English is must to learn
Find some English grammar and words resources, where i can learn it
Dive into the books i found
Share my progress with you in this blog
After really good job, do final project and make cv
Find a job:)
After some research in different places i realized, that study of GameDev is really hard. Because if you want to start in low-level programming in this sphere, you should be hardly motivated. I didn't find any material in russian language, only in english. The aren't any courses, only books. And you should ask yourself, before starting to dig deeper. Can i really do it? If your answer was "Yes", you can read information below)
I already had some experience in CS, but if you don't start with books about it. I recommend "W.V.F.Filho - Computer science distilled learn the art of solving computational"
It's really good book, but if you know anything better, please leave it in the comments.
Then you can find some books about CS and programming languages in my Google Drive, but this book is enough to light start.
I'm so sorry, I've lost this link
Let's continue with our main topic.
First you should read “Game coding complete”, it will give you basic understanding of game development
Then add some “Game engine architechture”
And then start to learn other book by the way

Contunied to watch movies in English
Started to read more in Enlish
Finally, started to speak with native speaker
Add more resources

Really good online university to start learn CS is github free university
I've tried to tell you all information, that i know so far. Please review my post in the comment. Recommend what i should improve and etc.
See you later!
