CS A109 Intro to Game Dev with Javascript

The 2015 Spring Semester at Mat-Su Central College starts tomorrow and my first class is Spanish 102 at 5PM. But I actually started my semester earlier today.

About a week ago I was able to get into a Computer Science class called Introduction to Game Development with Javascript. It was full by the time I found out about it in mid-December, but I kept an eye on it and luckily spotted an opening and grabbed it. While I don’t need another CS class for my AA degree I can use it as an elective — and if you think I’m going to skip any game-related class you’re crazy.

Seems like UAA has a game-related class about every other year. And while this one is focused on Javascript, one of my least favorite languages, it’s also using Unity, a tool I’ve been looking for an excuse to dive into. This is that excuse.

So how did I start the class early? It’s a “distance learning” class which means it takes place entirely online and Sunday afternoon is when the new weekly lessons are pushed out. So I already did my weekly assignment.

I wish the class was in person, but I’ll take what I can get.
