In the first of two sessions, we will explore using Cocos2d-x, a free and open source game engine. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux and builds games for every popular phone, tablet, and desktop platform. It uses C++ to get close to metal performance and a smart and logical set of classes to make it easy.
Don't let the C++ scare you off. We are using Cocos2d-x to create fun platform games, not building complicated financial software. So long as you know at least one curly brace language you will be able to write Cocos2d-x style C++.
We will explore how to install Cocos2d-x. How to build the test apps and finally how to build your own apps.
