Those looking to do something a little different on the grid this week have a golden opportunity awaiting them. Nathan Zetkin is conducting a free introductory class on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 5pm SLT at Brains ‘R Us. The session will be an overview of his ‘Advanced Scripting’ course that runs about 18 classes long with a wide assortment of topics.

Definitely worth mentioning is the fact that following the free introduction, Nathan’s Advanced Scripting course only costs L$100 for each class.  The individual sessions are independent from one another; a convenient option, should students wish to pick and choose the type of scripting class(es) that they wish to attend — personalizing their educational path.

I asked Nathan what his qualifications are to present such a thorough class on the subject of Advanced Scripting, and he did not fail to deliver. He has a Master’s degree in Computer Engineering in RL, has worked professionally on virtual worlds since 2000, and has been “a programmer for too long to mention here.” He considers himself an expert at scripting and has helped script and build many things that are currently located on the SL Marketplace.  This includes some very involved scripting projects, such as Nathan’s own Brain HUD and a Mysti-tool like device with an advanced GUI.

“My students really enjoy my classes and my teaching style. I aim to make complicated things simple and have taught many people who have never scripted or programmed before. The Advanced scripting class is not hard and it is a lot of fun. It helps to have scripted before or taken the beginning class but most of the scripts will be given out and explained how they work.” – Nathan Zetkin

See you all Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 5pm SLT at Brains ‘R Us!
