Valve are attempting to help bring more high school-age students into game development with the launch of the Pipeline service.
“We are frequently asked questions by teenagers about the videogame industry,” say Valve. “What is it like to work on videogames? What should I study? What colleges are best for preparing me? How do I get a job in videogames? Pipeline will be a place where those questions can be discussed.”
Describing the service as an “experiment”, Valve clams that traditionally their company has been “a very good place for very experienced videogame developers, and not so good at teaching people straight out of school.”
“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.”
