I'm interested in making a sticky topic here containing links to material, such as books, tutorials, for beginners, and even the more experienced, in game programming. We'll see where this thread goes, and if we get a bunch of feedback we might ask some of the moderators to make it a sticky.
My first input into this, that comes to my mind, is perhaps Kev's Space Invaders tutorial
, that has helped many.http://www.cokeandcode.com/spaceinvaderstutorial
Looking forward to see what others put forward
I might be interested in seeing links to some good books posted.
