The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
John Conomikes has been interested in all kinds of games (video, board, card, etc.) since a very early age and into designing and creating them soon after that. He learned the basics of programming in elementary school as his first step towards being able to make his own video games. After a while he realized that being able to program on his own was not enough to make the games he envisioned and then set off learning and teaching himself about game design. In high school he learned about the ETC program and set his sights on getting into it in order to help him fulfill his lifelong ambition of crafting his own games and distributing them for all to play. Six years and a BS in computer science later he is there and after graduation he hopes to get right into the heart of the video game industry is a primarily design role.
