The Web is full of game development resources. In general, Google will be your best friend, but there are some special places that you should check out, including these:
■ www.gamedev.net: One of the oldest game development sites on the Web, with a huge treasure chest of articles on all sorts of game development topics.
■ www.gamasutra.com: Another old Goliath of game development. More industry orientated, with lots of postmortems and insight into the professional game development world.
■ http://wiki.gamedev.net: A big wiki on game development, chock full of articles on game programming for different platforms, languages, and so on.
■ www.flipcode.com/archives/: The archives of the now defunct flipcode site. Some pearls can be found here. Although slightly outdated at times, it is still an incredibly good resource.
■ www.java-gaming.org: The -number one go-to place for Java game developers. People such as Markus Persson of Minecraft fame frequent this place (well, Markus doesn't that much anymore, given his current lifestyle).
