2014 brings a new addition to the VFS family

In case you haven’t heard, we are excited to add a brand-new, innovative program to the award-winning educational roster at VFS.

Programming for Games, Web & Mobile is the first of its kind in the industry: a comprehensive one-year program that provides grads with the technical, creative, and industry knowledge to work in an almost unprecedented number of fields. An incredible array of skills are learned and an incredible range of industry doors are opened.

The course was designed by Dave Warfield, Head of Game Design; Peter Walsh, Game Design Senior Instructor; and Miles Nurse, Head of Digital Design. Many months of research and planning went into the program, along with students, alumni, recruiter, and industry consultations.

The entertainment arts industry relies on skilled programmers, who are the technical lynchpins to digital media projects, from Interactive Designers and Front-End Developers, to VFX Programmers and Technical Architects. Programming for Games, Web & Mobile is all about becoming a better, smarter, more versatile and hireable developer.

If you would like to learn more about Programming for Games, Web & Mobile, or know someone who would be interested, please visit the program page or speak to an advisor.

We are extremely proud of all the hard work that has gone into this program and are excited to see it start in March and grow the world-class educational experience that is Vancouver Film School.
