About the Author

Hi there! 👋 My name is Engin Arslan. I am a software developer based in Zürich. Before becoming a developer, I worked as a visual effects artist/technical director on films and TV shows, including Resident Evil 4, Tron, Mama, Pompeii, Vikings, and Strain. I received an Emmy Nomination and won a Canadian Screen Award for my Visual Effects work. During my time in VFX, I fell in love with Python and with programming in general. As a result, I have taught myself web development and changed careers to immerse myself completely in software development. Currently, I am working as a senior front-end developer at Shopify. I am also an author for a couple of online courses, such as 3D Graphics on the Web and Coding for Visual Learners on Linkedin Learning. I was a professor at Seneca College in Toronto for 5 years, teaching programming to complete beginners. I have decided to write Awesome Coding since there aren't too many sources out there that teach programming in an engaging way.
