We Make Games
Each year, Canalside Studios is staffed by up to eight students; four from the Games Design course and four from the Computer Games Programming course. Here you can see who is currently on placement and find out a bit about them.
Programmer, Canalside Studios - My name is Jonathan Cotterill, I originally come from Birmingham, but I grew up in Wakefield. Before coming to Huddersfield I went to Wakefield College and studied Games Design for 2 years, during my time there I found my niche in programming after learning Flash and ActionScript, releasing my first game “Halberd” online.
Programmer, Canalside Studios - Before coming to the University of Huddersfield I lived in a small village in Cheshire. At college I studied Maths, Physics and Psychology at A-level so I didn’t have much programming experience prior to university but I feel I have learned a lot during my time here. In my spare time I enjoy reading, meeting up with friends and watching films, as well as playing games of course.
