What is Pikuma?
We are a platform for online courses focused on the fundamental concepts of game development, computer science, programming, and mathematics.
Why the rubber duck?
In software engineering, "rubber duck debugging" is a method of debugging code. The programmer explains the code bug to the duck, line-by-line, and in the process of breaking down the problem it eventually figures out what's wrong with it. At Pikuma, we strongly believe in the power of understanding and being able to explain line-by-line what we are doing. It is the heart of our teaching methodology and delivery format.
