By Devin Helmgren, Software Development Instructor

Hello! My name is Devin and I am the new instructor as of the start of Ada’s tenth cohort!

I was born and raised in the greater Seattle area, and after a brief jaunt to Portland, OR for college, I came back to pursue a career in games! After a few years of work at a local studio, I went independent, and during that time met another indie developer who happened to be on staff. The rest, as they say, is history.

When I’m not teaching, I’m playing/making games, writing, or getting extravagant in the kitchen. The books on my shelf are mostly science fiction or fantasy. My cat reviews books on Instagram.
