Game and Web Development Instructor
Andrew Snyder-Spak is a graduate of New York University where he studied Computer Science and Game Design, as well as Music. Andrew has always had a passion for Video Game Design and Computer Programming. Starting at age 11, he began learning to create his own games and applications using GameMaker Studio and Visual Basic. In High School he expanded his studies by taking AP Computer Science, as well as every other programming related course offered. Once at NYU, he continued his studies while doing freelance video game prototyping on the side for some of his professors. Andrew has also done some research work with NYU's Langone Medical Center, creating a functioning prototype of a concussion analysis tool using the Nintendo Wii bluetooth balance board. The proposed study would explore the possibility of using the Nintendo Wii Bluetooth Balance Board as an affordable alternative to the current industry standard balance board, which costs several thousand dollars. Andrew has also worked on a variety of projects and topics ranging from Web Design to iOS App Development. Currently Andrew is working with LearnToProgram.TV to help share his knowledge and teach a new generation aspiring computer programmers.
