Stanford Engineering: Free Online Courses
Hey indie game programmers! This amazing international opportunity has just came from one of the top universities in the world, Stanford University. Stanford Engineering is now offering three courses online for FREE
. Yes that's right, you pay nothing. Not only will the videos of the professor's lectures be accessible to you, but you will also be able to take part in all the materials the course would normally offer. This includes homework, programming assignments and even exams that you will get marked by a university professor at Stanford University School of Engineering.
Not living in the United States? No problem, these courses are setup to be international.

So how does this all sound to you? Exciting? Daunting and scary? Or are you on the fence wondering if you should check this out or not? Well no matter which one you are, this is a great opportunity for anyone interested in Artificial Intelligence and lessons learned here could be incredibly useful in your own game projects in the future where a computer opponent or computer assisted game-play may be required.
Should use in your own games not be a motivator, perhaps the fact that you will be able to use your participation and your performance in this course on your own resume/CV which could help you later on in a potential job hunt.
