C++ Programming Lessons
I will provide up to 2-hr sessions in which I will teach you the concepts necessary to learn programming, specifically using C++.
The sessions are focused toward beginners with little-to-no experience in programming, but I can modify them as necessary if you just need help with a particular topic. The lessons will be interactive, and I will expect you to participate and do some exercises.
Programming is an ever increasing necessity and software developers are always in high demand. By committing to learn C++, you will understand the concepts of programming that can be applied to any programming language. You will also be able to program cool things such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi microcontrollers, and make robots or or other cool contraptions that you can combine with 3D printed or other materials to do awesome things.
My hope is that you will continue to take more lessons and grow from beginner to software developer, but you can always just take one lesson to see if you like it. It isn't as hard as people make it sound, I promise!

About Matt Parish
As a software developer, it is my goal to create games and applications that engage, enlighten, and enchant players and users. In my games, I accomplish this by providing a unique experience that m...aximizes interaction with, and influence upon, the storyline and environment, stimulating players mentally using a variety of methods focusing on deductive reasoning and problem solving, and captivating them with refreshing artistic style and compelling narrative. In other applications, I plan to accomplish the same by designing clean and intuitive user interfaces that allow the user to focus on the task at hand, focusing on software that is informative or educational in nature, and providing a polished look and feel along with reliable and responsive performance that will give users the "wow" factor they crave. Some examples of companies that I feel have accomplished similar goals very well are Double Fine Productions, Chair Entertainment, Amanita Design, Playdead, Valve and too many others to list without running out of memory. I credit my inspiration and continuing drive to the creative minds from these companies and the players who support them.show moreOpen to other proposals
