Curtis Bennett has been a developer in the games and computer graphics industry for several years. He has worked on developing immersive virtual environments, published research in visual simulation, taught college courses in game development, and worked for various game studios, and he was also an engineer on early versions of the RAIN AI plugin for Unity. Currently, he is the Technical Director for Creative Services at Ideum, which focuses on creating interactive media projects. Dan Violet Sagmiller has always had a strong passion for game development, although most of his work leads him to senior business development roles. He developed several games, including Teams RPG, a space shooter (which won a game development competition at Technology Center of DuPage), and some casual games. He started teaching game development at Heartland Community College in 2005, taking over the existing course and expanding it to six courses. Later, he took a position with Microsoft and expanded the game development curriculum for Bellevue College, including classes on AI, physics, testing and designing using C# and XNA. Later, he moved on to a senior position with Wizards of the Coast, where he also taught game development and AI internally. He also has given talks at multiple schools about getting into game development and programming as a career. More recently, he released a game development book on C# and XNA, which had 2,000 downloads in the first week. He also runs Learn Build Play, a small private school dedicated to teaching game development and design mostly with C# and Unity 3D.
