I started learning programming during my teen years in the last months of 2015 beginning with python. I somewhat learnt how to use some of its modules such as pygame and django. I then started making video games using the Unity game engine and learnt how to write code in c# for it.

In 2018, I was a Google Code-In finalist. To this day, I'm always learning new things while contributing to GitHub by participating in events such as IETFs.

Being a Linux lover, I also made my own Distro. In 2019, I mentored for Google Code-in with my former org; OpenWISP.

Let's make a video game live!

For the first 5-10 minutes, I'll be introducing myself and talking about how I started with programming and when I made my first game.

Then, I'll be demonstrating how to create a basic game in around 20-30 minutes. It will be a simple game with minimalistic design made with using the Unity game engine. The game will feature the player as a tank and enemies will be spawned at random locations at random speeds. The player loses if he gets hit too much and a score will be kept. There will be some Particle Systems (/animations) to improve this simple game.

I'll also answer questions in that 45 minutes time period.

Message me on social medias for more information or a standalone version of the game I'm planning to present.
