This is kind of a broad topic, but I play a wide variety of games and enjoy many aspects of them, from chess to card games to that blasted Minesweeper! Want to know why you never land on Boardwalk in Monopoly? We can talk about that too!

Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

I will teach you how to make video games! I teach the following programs:

Scratch 2.0 - a great program to learn for beginners or children 8 and up! Put together code "blocks" like puzzle pieces to program your game!

Stencyl - For making games without typing code! Similar to Scratch where blocks of code are used, but much more powerful!

Unity - For making 2D and 3D games. We will use a little bit of C# language to code the games!

Game Art - Create game art and animation sprites for your games using Adobe Animate and Adobe Photoshop!

Children or Adults can take any of these programs. I recommend 8+ years for Scratch and 10+ years for Unity. 12+ years to really get into more actual c# coding.

Start your path to becoming a game maker today!

I've been gaming for over 30 years. I play everything from tabletop and card games to console and PC video games. I play every genre from shooters to RPGs to adventure games. I have extensive experience at character creation and developing characters as you play through the game.
I'd love to share my experience with you.

I have run several Steam servers that I have built on my own. This course is primarily getting a gaming server up and running, such as Minecraft, Rust, Ark, etc. and administrating it, either on your own server, or a hosted option.

I have been an IT Consultant, IT Security Analyst, and an IT Engineer for over 25 years. In those years, I have achieved 22 Certificates, that have helped me provide efficiency, productivity, and smiles in the field. I LOVE teaching what I know, and most importantly, enjoy the satisfaction of sharing. I am a very "people oriented" person who understands that we all have our strengths, so understanding that, makes it ok for people to ask me anything they want to know! There is truly no dumb question, as I have been there! I teach using "real world examples" and stay very current with technology.
