About

Hi

My name is Billy Deakin, founder of Flash Games Classroom.

I began building websites commcerially back in 1999, and in 2002 I founded Kernow Web Designs.  I soon found my niche in the marketplace was a marriage between my programming skills, and my passion for videogames.  I started developing my own games in Flash and in 2003 I launched Kwikgames.com

Kwikgames was an immediate hit (when I released Blob Wars in March 2003 it was so popular it crashed the server!) and have since  worked with many big clients around the world, developing Flash games and website content.  I’ve had featured game spots on big sites like AddictingGames, I’ve sold my games to massive portals such as MiniClip, my games have been featured in magazines, and I’ve worked with a range of big name clients from The BBC to Orange, from charities like ASC to organisations like The San Franciso Giants baseball team!

In 2006 I began sharing my skills by teaching Flash workshops to local design firms and students, and then wrote and gave a series of seminars known as 1 Day Webmaster.  Building on that success, and seeing a need in the market that wasn’t being fulfilled, I decided to take my skills and experience and develop a full training course, teaching the ins and out of Flash games development from the ground up!

The course is still currently in development, and due for release in early 2010.  It is mostly video based, and each module includes a game case study with full source code.  In the meantime I’m using this site as a way of sharing some free content and getting to know some of my potential customers, finding out what you want to learn, and sharing my knowledge and experience.

I’m still running a survey to ensure that the course content are what YOU want, so please do take 2 minutes to fill in the 5 short questions, and in return I’ll send you a discount code so that when the course launches you’ll be able to get it before anyone else at a reduced rate, plus you’ll get my free Flash game social bookmarking component!

Questions/suggestions please send to bill@flashgamesclassroom.com

All the best,

Billy Deakin
