Eyad Alwan is a Grade 6 student at Under the GUI Academy currently working on puzzle platforming app where you play as a ball and you have to try to collect yellow orbs.
Since Eyad’s started at UTG, he’s worked on all sorts of games from RTS games like Clash of Clans to now a platforming ball!
Here’s what he has to say:
What was the most difficult thing about programming?
(The most difficult part about learning programming is) remembering different lines of code, remembering what it all does, and how to put it all together. But it’s really satisfying learning how to get it all to work together.
How did you learn to program?
I got better at programming after learning how to solve my own errors. I found it very satisfying finding the errors and fixing them. Also, normally when you try to change something an error will pop up, when you fix one error, you get another one, and learning how to fix them all helped me become a better programmer.
What’s your favourite thing about coding?
I really enjoy seeing the final product, seeing the final app finished is really fun. It’s also really satisfying resolving all the errors that come up in my program.
I really like sharing my games with friends and family… It’s fun getting them to play my hard work!
Eyad says he continues to work on his game at home and will hopefully be done by the end of the year!
