inScopeStudios - Game programmer & Teacher
Who am I?
My Name is Kenneth R. Andersen, and I'm 28 years old. I live in Denmark with my 1 year old son and my wife.
I am an AP.Graduate in Computer Science from a Danish Game Academy called Dania Games. I finished my degree back in June 2012.
From 2012 till 2015 I managed to take a bachelor degree in web development at the same time as I was working a full time job.
Even though that it's a while since I learned how to program myself, I do remember how hard it was to get into the programming mindset. This is also something I'm using when I'm teaching. I'm always trying to remember how I learned these things myself, and what worked and what didn't work when I had to learn how to program.
When I finished my degree back in 2012, the academy hired me as a full time teacher. Which means, that it is almost 5 years since I started teaching professionally. When I started I was only 23 years old, which seems very young. lots of my students back then were the same age or older than me but it didn't matter at all. I still got great feedback from my classes, and I learned a lot from teaching (and I still do). Below are the subjects that I'm currently teaching on the academy:
- UML & Designpatterns
- Basic C# programming
- Object oriented C# programming
- Artificial intelligence in games
- UNREAL Engine
- Network programming
- Android programming
- Programming VR Games
I currently run a youtube channel called inscopestudios. It's a channel dedicated to programming lectures. My main focus is on unity3d and that's also what I want to focus on here on Udemy. I'm almost up to 10k subscribers (something that I'm very proud of). So if your are looking for some great free lectures on C# programming or Unity, then don't forget to check out my channel.
I'v been running the channel in a more serious manner for a little more than a year. I started focusing more on the channel and uploading videos more frequently because of the positive feedback I got from the early videos I uploaded. The feedback inspired me and made me wanna do more.
Why I wanna make courses on
Multiple subscribers on my youtube channel has told me to start making courses here on Udemy. They told me that my courses on youtube are as good or better than some of the courses they are paying for here on Udemy, and that they would encourage me to create some courses for Udemy. Based on that I figured that it would be a great ide to give Udemy a try.
I'm sure that I'll be able to contribute a lot to the page by creating great programming courses. Of course I also hope that Udemy will bring me closer to my dream of being self employed by creating online programming courses.
Philosophy behind my teaching style
The word teach is very important to me. I always teach my students why we do something, and how it works. In other words, I don't make programming tutorials that you can follow without knowing what's going on. I will teach you how to program. If you end up completing parts of my course without understanding what's going on, then I'm not doing my job right.
