Discover SFML for C++ Game Development

Start developing media-rich, cross-platform games with C++ by exploring SFML.

Simple and Fast Multimedia Library, or SFML for short, is an easy-to-use API that allows programs to quickly access various multimedia components – such as graphics, audio, or similar.  It is widely used for a variety of graphics-oriented applications due to its ability to draw objects on the screen, handle user input, and more.  Additionally, as it is written in C++, it is both efficient and able to integrate seamlessly into C++ projects.

In this course, we’ll be taking a look at SFML and learn how to use it to develop a simple enemy clicker game.  You will not only gain a strong understanding of how to use SFML to access graphics and audio for games, but also gain fundamental skills that will allow you to further progress in your knowledge of using C++ for game development.

You will learn how to:

  • Install and set up SFML
  • Draw sprites and text to the screen
  • Play audio clips based on interactions
  • Set up logic to detect player clicks
  • Create a world to hold the game
  • Implement an enemy and end game logic

… and more!

Basic to intermediate C++ skills.
Why should I learn programming?

We’re living in the age of technology. In every industry, demand for developers is high and continues to rise, yet there’s a shortage of skilled developers. As a result, there’s a huge number of exciting opportunities out there for developers who want to take them.

By mastering the skills taught in these courses, you’ll prepare yourself for roles in a wide range of industries. Whether you want to work in a startup or a Fortune 500 company, you’ll learn in-demand knowledge and techniques that will help you to succeed.

What will I achieve by taking these courses?

You’ll not only learn the most in-demand modern languages, frameworks, and tools, but also how to apply them to your own projects and real-world situations.

Additionally, as our courses are primarily project-based, as you learn you’ll develop a rock-solid professional portfolio that can be used to impress potential employers.

Technology changes quickly. What happens if the content becomes outdated?

We’re committed to providing you with the most up-to-date, relevant content. If one of our courses becomes outdated due to modern practices, we’ll update it. Often, we’ll even remake it entirely using the latest versions of the languages, tools and frameworks.

We’re committed to keeping up with cutting-edge developments in the industry, and turn this knowledge into new courses, which we publish every month.

I’m an absolute beginner who’s never coded before. Can I still do these courses?

Yes, you can! We have entry-level courses on all key topics, and each of our curriculums feature guided learning paths that show you what courses are needed to reach your goals.

Additionally, if you need a little extra help, we have expert mentors on hand to answer any course-related questions that you might have.

What time commitment is needed?

We get that you’re busy, and so we’ve designed our courses to be completely flexible, so you can learn at your own pace and fit your courses around your schedule.

While we recommend that you put in at least a few hours a week (the more hours put in, the more you’ll get out!) there are no time limits or deadlines that you need to worry about.

Will these courses help me to change my career?

Many of our students have been able to successfully change their careers, land their dream job, get promoted, and even start their own businesses… and you have the potential to do the same!

You can also combine your existing skills with your new tech skills, and expand your career, rather than changing it completely.

Our courses have been designed to teach you highly transferable skills, and leave you with strong projects that can be added to your professional portfolio – whatever you want to do, we’ll help to get you there!
