Hello, my name is

Aidan Temple

I'm a Game Developer



Aidan has recently completed his Professional Masters in Games Development at Abertay University, Dundee. As part of this degree he has had the opportunity to work alongside Sony to develop an original IP for the PlayStation 4. As well as performing research focused on concurrent software architectures.

Before attending Abertay University Aidan worked as a software engineer for Ekwus Ltd. Ekwus was a small development studio, which focused its attention on the creation of software applications utilised in the medical sector to aid in the training of medical staff.

Prior to this Aidan studied his Bachelors degree in Computer Games Software Development at Glasgow Caledonian University. In his final year his main focus was on the research of concurrent software applications through the use of general purpose computing on the graphics processing unit (GPGPU). This has given him the insight into modern programming techniques used in games and has allowed Aidan to continue this research into his masters degree.

In addition, Aidan was previously a Windows Games Ambassador for Microsoft. This role required liaising between students and staff at Microsoft to develop Windows and Xbox based games. As well as delivering content at conferences and events aimed towards the games industry.

Aidan has experience in a number of programming languages, including C# and C++. Due to his experience in games software development Aidan was asked to author a book on HTML5 game programming during the final year of his undergraduate degree.
