Instructor Biography

Ed Farias, Game Designer

I have been programming for over 20 years on various platforms.

I've been making video games with Construct 2 for over 4 years.

I currently have 10 games on various app markets, including iOS and Android.

I have a desire and skill to teach beginners at their own level so they don't feel overwhelmed when learning. My main focus is to build up the customers confidence to use the software I am teaching them. With that confidence, they can do great things.
