Hi, I’m Guido Henkel and I’ve been a Codewarrior since 1983—a professional game developer and programmer going back to the days of 8-bit computers. Since my early days on the Apple][, I’ve always been extremely open about my work and often shared my experience at events like the Game Developers Conference (GDC). Now it's time to begin sharing programming bits and bobs here on Patreon. I do the work, you use it!

What you can expect

I’ve always been a bit of a tinkerer. While I’ve programmed, designed, and produced numerous commercial games over the years, the long-haul of the development is often less interesting to me than the exploration of techniques, technologies, and tidbits. I’ve always preferred working on small and fairly specific modules that allow me to explore, tweak and refine methodologies and techniques. Now I will make stuff so you don't have to!

Expect to see tutorials for solutions that have been designed for C# in Unity3D, Python, C++ or some other languages. Regardless of the platform, however, in the end, you will understand how the solution works so that you can apply that knowledge to other platforms and languages if need be. My intention is to teach, not to offer complete key-turn solutions.

Does the world really need more tutorials?

Contrary to popular practice, I’ve always found video tutorials unsuitable for programming purposes and I have therefore decided to prepare written tutorials instead. That way you can glean information very quickly, particularly if you are already on familiar turf and know what you’re looking for. Unlike a video tutorial that simply follows along as you do, a good, written tutorial takes a decent amount of time and effort to prepare, however. It needs to be fine-tuned in order to make sure it covers everything, including preliminaries—and does so in an understandable manner.

My tutorials will feature images, illustrations and animations to show what might be happening behind the scenes, to make sure you will fully understand how the solution works. Your contribution will give you access to concepts, to materials, research and information that you can immediately put to use!

You are a guy who represents the nuts and bolts of programming and your support is very welcome. Read and digest my content at will.

You help to get things rolling at a pace and your contribution definitely helps grease the wheels of my operation. Therefor I’ll be happy to give you access to my source code repository where you can directly download the full source for my tutorials.

Like me, you are a chameleon who doesn’t care what language we’re talking, as long as it involves programming. Your contribution honors me and as a thank you I will also provide you with smaller programming nuggets along the way that might be useful to you.

You need input, I understand, and with your contribution you help expedite and fast-track certain projects and programming nuggets. You also get a direct voice, which means you can help influence what topics I will take a look at.

You must love computers as much as I do. It’s the only way to explain why you would so voraciously desire the stuff I’m dishing out. Therefore, I will make full project files available to you, fully set up with all necessary images, prefabs, scripts, etc.
Opcode
$50 or more per Tutorial 0 patrons
You are absolutely hard-core, and I like it! You’re giving me more money than you should and I take it as a gesture of immense goodwill. You are collecting more positive Karma than Sonic collects rings! In return I will also have an open, direct and unfiltered line of communication with you.
Goals
$0 of $150 per Tutorial
$150 for each of my tutorials? If we can do that, I'll happily drop small nuggets of code here and there, just for the fun of it!
