About the instructor
Hi, I’m James. I have helped thousands of people learn how to develop their own games in Unity, and whether you’re a first-time developer, or need to refresh your skills, I can help you learn to make the games you want to make.
With a bachelors degree in Computer Science and a background working in independent game development, I have been helping others to create their own games and release them on multiple platforms.
I believe in helping you learn by teaching code in context, so rather than having to memorize a bunch of stuff you’ve never seen before, you learn how each coding concept can be applied to real working problems in your games.
I can’t wait to help you learn all about making your own games and how to make them a success.
So why not start learning to make games with me now?
See you soon!
