Over the weekend I took a quick look at Get in the Game! by Marc Mencher. I don’t actually work in the game industry and don’t have a good way to evaluate the material. However, one thing stuck out (Chapter 2, pages 16–17):
Here’s an example of C code:Printf("("Hello World" " \n);
Here’s an example of C++ code:Ship.GetX(*ship); Cout>> ""The stuff we want is over here";";
Here’s an example of Visual Basic code:Public Sub Main() Send CGI_CONTENT_TYPE_TEXT_HTML Send vbCrLf Send "Hello World!" End Sub
Here’s an example of Java code:System.out.println("("Why is this Java code");");
If you know these programming languages, you’re probably laughing right now. Fortunately this isn’t a book that attempts to teach programming.
