WHY STUDENTS CHOOSE US
“I was communicating with recruiters within a few days of joining the program.”
I can’t think of of a better investment – I mean the money that I put into this program has been added on exponentially with the money that I make now. I’ve worked in multiple senior level positions since I started this program.
This program has beyond more than paid for itself.
I have already recommended it to just about every friend of mine that is interested in this type of work. Because not only is it educational and can teach you from the ground up even (if not focusing on getting your job out of it right away and setting your career off) … just learning from the classes, getting into this community… it’ll provide such a strong foothold for anybody.
“Thanks to GameDevHQ,
my life and career are different now”
There are various topics in the program that I didn’t learn from my previous studies that I can apply to day to day projects outside of work. Having gone through the GameDevHQ courses has helped me further progress the confidence boost for when I go into a new project.
“I was able to expand my network and get a position at Space Rat. “
The support from the GameDevHQ team itself is really cool. The fact that there are coaches and a whole Discord available when I have a problem is a game changer.
I can just ask someone real quick instead of having to go through a whole process of searching for an answer. Sometimes something catastrophic happens, I have really good coaches to help me through the problem.
When I was self- studying, I was my own teacher and I was limited by my existing knowledge. I did not really know what I was doing wrong.
“I was a bartender the last five years, and now I am a software engineer at ForeVR Games“
My biggest win with GameDevHQ would probably be landing a job a couple months after completing the program. I think it really elevated my problem solving and my programming expertise.

“The training is fantastic, but also the community, the coaches and the motivation …
I was not alone anymore“
Basically what this program gives you is the focus and the path. This is very important, especially if you come from absolute zero, like me.
You learn to learn.
Because of GameDevHQ I'm now working as a Game Developer at Activision working on Call of Duty Mobile!
In just 2 months GameDevHQ's game development career program helped fine-tune my job search, fill in a development gap I wasn't even aware of, and allowed me to demo my value to the job market. After those 2 months, I had not only recruiters but HR at companies directly chasing me with good offers at companies I was excited to work with.
I have accepted an offer from SAIC to begin working as a scene generation engineer. I want to thank Jonathan Weinberger and GameDevHQ for helping me along the way to this lifelong dream of my career! I can't wait to start this exciting journey!
Just signed the final offer with i3M for the first 2 months of intensive training, then transition to full time employee and a new contract! Thank you to everyone at GDHQ again! And a special thanks for all the help to @Thomas Kesler @Al Heck @Jonathan Weinberger
“To learn game development, I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t go with GameDevHQ.“
They have this really great mindset of encouraging you to learn on your own, to go and find out how to learn, not just what to learn. And I think that’s a great thing for, especially for newcomers to programming.
What they did for me personally, was help me push my content onto social media. I was able to reference those posts when I was talking to recruiters.
“GameDevHQ has helped me advance my career primarily through their networking component”
I started in the 2D Game Development course. And by the time I was about halfway through that course, which was, two or three months into the course, I was already getting, massive amount of interview requests through LinkedIn.
GameDevHQ was so much better than just finding random YouTube videos, finding course after course on you Udemy – they have a very structured plan that you gain the skills in the right order so that you really become a software developer by the time you’re done with their program.
GameDevHQ’s program was worth every cent I spent – it’s been game changing for my career.
“The confidence that I got from the GameDevHQ program has allowed me to become a working professional.”
“Before I came to GameDevHQ, I must have put it out like 50 resumes, never a response. Now every week I hear from three or four interviews recruiters“
“I started the program at GameDevHQ in May and in August I joined Game Studio.”
Daniel Ercilio Del Rosario Guerra
“I’ve learned more in the past month and a half than I did the entire three years I was in college“
“I was able to acquire my first client!”
I was scared every time I wanted to try something new, because I always thought I need to forget everything that I already learned about programming.
But something that Jonathan always tells you to do is to share your progress. I started doing YouTube videos. So everything I learned or when I found something interesting… doing that allowed me to share my content on social media. And that is how I was able to get my first client with a small studio in Texas as a freelancer.
“They offer a community that help you with all your problems, not only the coaches, also the other members“
I was really insecure before the program.
And now I have a job in the game industry and it totally works with the content, the community and the people. You still have the connection with them.
I recommend for any person who wants to start in the gaming industry. Even if you have experience, they’re going to show you the path to get a job or the path to start in the industry. Even once you find a job, you’re gonna learn a lot.
“Before I started coding I was a line cook at Outback steakhouse. Now I’m a software engineer at Kid Strong“
“When you sign up for GameDevHQ you get a gambit of valuable information. For one, you get taught how to do LinkedIn, how to talk to people in the industry, and how to get a job. Now I am on my way to building a career.“
