    About the authors

    Juriy Bura is a software engineer who lives in Kiev, Ukraine with his wife and daughter. Having more than seven years of experience in Java and JavaScript, he is sure that game development is the area with the most fun concentrated in a line of code. His passion for games development started at the age of 10, when he got his first PC. After few days, he asked: "Playing is fun, but how do I make my own game?" With that thought in mind and after never-ending programming experiments, he graduated from the cybernetics department of Kiev National University already being a part-time J2ME game developer. For the past three years, he has worked as an independent consultant, with his main area of expertise being rich web applications for both desktop and mobile platforms. Juriy spends his spare time with family or playing board games in a small geek club. When he's not lucky throwing the die, he takes his airsoft equipment and drives outside to play a first-person shooter with his buddies.
