    A lot of us who went to cs college also had algorithms as one of the subjects. So people with university level education might either remember some of those or look it up faster. If you haven't had any prior algorithms courses, i would highly suggest you…

    In my opinion, no, you don't need to understand every algorithm. Engines are complex things and have many modules: 2D/3D math, rendering, physics, audio, scripting, networking... While it's arguably unrealistic to master all those topics, it's…
