About Absolute Beginners

John and Finn chat about things that they’re learning, specifically game development. Join us if you’re interested in building games yourself or even if you’re just vaguely interested in games.

John holds a PhD in Philosophy from Stanford University. He is particularly interested in philosophy of mind and comes to game development with an interest in design.

Finn (say hi on Mastodon!) is a product manager in San Francisco. He’s been a huge fan of the game dev community for years and is very curious to learn about how all the pieces come together to create an engaging experience.

Editing is done by John, web notes are by Finn, and our music is by Libby Roach of Portland, Oregon.
