    It depends on what you want to do though. If you've no interest in being a graphics programmer in the games industry then background knowledge of this is useful but you don't need to be an expert. There's still plenty of non-graphics programming needed.

    True, although basic vector arithmetic is invaluable for pretty much any coder - how many AI coders do you know who don't use a dot product every single day, for instance?

    Yeah I totally agree with that. I should've been clearer in my post. Vector knowledge is indeed a must but the I do disagree with what I seem to read in a lot of threads like this that everyone must know 3D graphics programming like the back of their hand.

    I guess a vector question is standard in the Codemasters interview hey?
