So this university near me is offering a new program in September 2016, it's called Honours BSc in Game Programming. In this program you get a BSc in Game Programming, plus a 3 year Diploma in Advanced Game Development in the 4 year time period. (2016-2020).
>1 degree + 1 diploma in 4 years
What does /biz/ think about Game Programming (Honours BSc, not BA) + a diploma in Advanced Game Development as a college thing to do?
I'm really interested in Game Programming, and I have a lot of really good ideas for games, and it's stuff I'd really like to build someday when I acquire the tools. Since now is the time to explore, do you think it's fine to go try it out? I could always still go to Law School after (my dream) so it's just something as an Undergrad that's easy and fun and could be very profitable in the future for me if I do manage to create my own online mmo rpg racing game.
is the university reputable in the video game industry? if the program is not well known then its probably not that useful. ask to see some statistics on where previous graduates have ended up, how many had relevant jobs lined up at graduation?
you have to be careful with these specialized degrees because its easy to get sold a dream.

It has the links for the course listings, so some of the courses I can choose from for the degree, but keep in mind, I can do a lot more electives on top... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>1007625 Yes, I have the same frustrations as you OP. My friends admittedly don't have high incomes, but make enough to save a couple thousand dollars over a year. Instead they spend all of their discretionary income on video games, weed, alcohol, cigarettes, fast food, and other shit they don't need. Then they have the lack of self-awareness to complain about how poor they are and how Bernie Sanders is the answer to all of their problems. It's sad and pathetic. I have a background in finance and they come to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
if you can actually make money trading, sure. but chances are you're no better than the ~95% of retail traders that never actually make anything close to what a mcdonalds worker makes and in fact loses. most of the individual traders you hear about that make real money got their start at an actual firm where they were trained by experienced professionals.

I have around 50 scrap vehicles, 150 scrap auto batteries, 50 catalytic converters, 100 aluminum rims, I had been attempting to run a salvage parts business the last few years but I never could keep enough money to buy more inventory and never sold enough parts to make it worth while, the scrap metal market has went to hell the last few months so simply crushing them isn't an option right now...I have been trying to figure out what type of business I could squeeze out of what I have already...any ideals would be great.
So, you guys said it was impossible. But I have been very successful with asking women to model their feet for me.
Friends, girls I've been intimate with, girls I've met outside, girls I met on tinder or online. Girls are willing to get pictures of their feet taken or take pictures of them and send it to you. They're also all surprisingly cool with having their feet kissed. The only girls I've met that had a problem with it literally had foot phobias that hated their feet or were ashamed of their feet.
Anyway, I wish I had started this earlier.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

For the last year and a half, I've been receiving 15%-25% off discounts from Best Buy, Kohls, Walgreens, and Target.
For years now people have been telling me to go into radio and voice acting. Friends, family, complete strangers, people at bars, and people on buses. What got me interested again is 3 complete strangers brought it up in the last week.
Not only that but some of them are literally begging me. Because if I don't do it I'm "wasting my talent". I don't know... just because I have a deep voice, I don't think that means I have the talent to voice act or have the ability to articulate myself professionally.

People tell me to become a chef because I like to cook, that doesn't mean it's a good idea or that the job will be what you expect. I know lots of cooks and it's not glamour and prestige, I tells ya.
So anyway this sounds like a skill you can develop on your own with some reading and attention, but whether it's worth pursuing is a different matter. How much money can you make? Deep voices can be hard to parse in noisy environments, is this an issue? Can you network on your own or is this an old boys' club, etc. Do some research on 1. if it's in demand, and 2. if it pays well enough to be worth the effort.
I suspect there are lots of people out there with good voices and they last for decades so I'd imagine this is a tough place to break into and actually make acceptable money at it.
How can I become a special intellect agency person or an espionage spy that lives in like miami or something. I have a 2 year degree in criminal justice and a vocational criminal justice diploma for a 2 year course.
Is there a lie detector test? I haven't done anything illegal besides drugs but I've smoked crack, free based molly, snorted pills, done ecstasy, smoking weed and oils on a daily basis, and I drink a lot. I've also sold drugs but I didn't want to. I think I'd be perfect as an agent as I'm athletic, coordinated, smart fast thinking... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you have insider information you're better off picking your own stocks, but if you don't have insider information or a computer network doing calculations you're basically playing a game of complete chance so you should go with etfs to minimize risk.
>If you have insider information I don't, I just read the fiscals and the analysts reports from experts in the industry I was thinking of investing in.
30% anual book value. However bear in mind I bought my positions in the shmitah when they were massively underpriced in relation to the DCF's and Graham Nr.s (not necessarily below it, but near them) and in my understanding that is what you have to seek for while value investing, the "sales".
Might as well ask here. How do I start investing? What to read, where to do it, etc? I've never had any education on the subject and I'm from a medical course, so I've had absolutely 0 contact with this subject during my whole life and don't know where to turn to.
What are your thoughts on women? Are they a mere distraction that deviates businessmen from success? Or are they an asset that encourages and supports businessmen on the path to fulfill their /biz/ ambitions?
You need to be dumb to think that they are a distraction, if she has some kind of amazing degree and she has more years in college than most of the employees she is a must have, cmon.. I see them as possible partners when im in my free time not at work.
>>1007125 You become successful, you date a sponsored high maintenence good looking girl, that wants you for your competence (money), she makes you a good looking kid, preferably a son to prolong the name. You've done everything necessary as a man, enjoy your life.

I would say in order to get your app popular among a bigger crowd you should take it easy with the advertisement, meaning don't make the ads anoying. My recommendation would be no ads until you get X amount of downloads and x amount of user then go with ads and then to a 0.99 app. Yes it's understandable that we programers need to make some $ as well but work towards a better app than towards the money
