Hi I'm Kaan, good to meet you!
I taught myself how to program in high school with the goal of making games.
Since I was a little kid I wanted to make my own games, so game development quickly became my passion.
I dabbled with C++, Unity, Godot, and made a bunch of games in my free-time!
After graduating from high school, I decided to go to Japan and started learning Japanese at a language school.
I graduated from the language school and got accepted to Japan Electronics College to study computer science.
I quickly realized I already knew 90% of the things they were teaching, and I didn't want a regular job, so I made the risky decision of quitting college and becoming an indie game developer.
I needed a way of funding myself, so I decided to make online courses and YouTube content.
Teaching and sharing my knowledge instantly became another passion of mine and I decided to do it more and more.
I reached out to GameDev.tv and we decided to work together on a course. I’m excited to be a part of this amazing community, helping people learn game development!
