New York City training course announced


In association with Flash and the City, I’ll be running my new Flash games programming workshop in New York on the 13th May. I first ran this course in Brighton last month and it went really well with over 97% approval rating.

Whether you’re an beginner or advanced coder you’ll get something out of the course. We walk through the anatomy of several arcade games with all source code and game engines provided. We’ll also be covering simple physics and collision detection beyond hitTest!

There are only a handful of super-early bird tickets left and I expect to sell out so I wouldn’t hang around if you want a place!

And I really look forward to seeing you in New York!

This workshop will also be available in :
Cologne for FFK in April (also a PV3D workshop)
New York City sponsored by Flash and the City in May
Minneapolis for FlashBelt in June

UK and Norway dates coming soon.
