Valve reveal Pipeline, a web resource for aspiring game developers

Comments (0)

Valve, the development team behind the Half-Life and Portal series and the Steam PC gaming digital distribution platform, have revealed Pipeline, a new web resource designed to aid teenagers looking to get into the games industry.

Pipeline will offer information on how to approach getting a job in the industry, including what skills are needed, what universisty courses would be required, and job application techniques.

Built and run by a group of high school interns currently at Valve, Pipeline will also give insight as to what it's like working for one of the most highly-regarded developers in the industry.

"Traditionally Valve has been a very good place for very experienced video game developers, and not so good at teaching people straight out of school (the reasons for this and the tradeoffs are covered in the Valve employee handbook)," the company explains on the Pipeline website.

"Pipeline is an experiment to see if we can take a group of high school students with minimal work experience and train them in the skills and methods necessary to be successful at a company like Valve."

The website and its features will be rolled out in the coming weeks. For now, you can check out an introductory video, featuring Valve head Gabe Newell, embedded above.
