About Alex Forsythe

I've been working with Unreal for over a decade, and I've shipped a number of video games with Unreal and with other engines. I've got a background in art, and I've worked as some combination of gameplay programmer, tools engineer, and technical artist at studios ranging from scrappy little niche outfits to publisher-funded AAA teams.

I spend my free time making educational videos, mostly about programming in Unreal, because I feel like video is a very powerful medium for teaching complex, technical topics... so long as it's appropriately researched, tightly edited, and accompanied by clear visual aids. I'm attempting to fill a niche for this kind of content for Unreal. I'm not trying to be an exhaustive source of documentation, and I'll leave the step-by-step tutorials to somebody else; rather, my goal is to present you with a useful overview for a topic in a way that'll make it click in your brain. Basically, it's stuff I wish I'd have known when I was starting out.

Game engines and development tools have become extremely powerful and accessible in recent years, and it's increasingly common for people who aren't formally trained software engineers to find themselves doing programming work — whether they think of themselves as programmers or not. So if you're one of those people, or if you're just somebody who works with Unreal and wants to know more about how it works, I hope you'll get something out of these videos.
