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 front-end engineer. I am also an author for a couple of online courses and books, such as Awesome Coding. I was a professor at Seneca College in Toronto for 5 years, teaching programming to complete beginners.
