Game Programming in C++ (Addison Wesley)
Tuesday, 15 May 2018

This is a practical, hands-on approach to programming 3D video games in C++. Modeled on Sanjay Madhav’s game programming courses at USC, it aims to be fun, easy, practical, hands-on, and complete.  The book shows how to use C++ in all facets of real-world game programming, including 2D and 3D graphics, physics, AI, audio, and user interfaces and has practical exercises and start-to-finish projects that grow in complexity. Throughout, Madhav pays special attention to demystifying the math that all professional game developers need to know.
