Thanks to the YouTube channel Samuele offers free video courses on how to develop video games. “I love helping my students to make their games, many of those who follow me on YouTube have become professionals.” Samuele tells us that he also taught in physical classrooms on behalf of a prestigious Italian foundation and some primary and secondary schools. “Exactly, both teachers and students have always had a positive approach to the subject of video game development, during my lessons I did my best to try to make students understand what is possible by specializing in this profession.”
