#192 – Building Games Users Will Actually Pay For with Dave Geddes of Flexbox

It's not uncommon for software engineers to get into programming because of video games. The story usually goes that they played a lot of games as a kid and even though they dreamed of building these games as a developer usually end up working for Facebook or Google creating Web Apps. Not Dave Geddes. Dave (@geddski) is making games that teach people how to code and he's not giving them away for free. He's actually selling them for hundreds of dollars in fact. In this episode, Dave and I talk about the moment that led to him leaving his high-paying, secure job, the launch of his first game and how he's monetizing it.
