First, I tried psychology. Then, I tried nursing. Finally, I found true enjoyment in Computer Science. It took me a while to find my niche, and while I didn’t notice it then, I can see so clearly now that all that exploration was a necessary means to finding happiness. A few days ago, I officially became a full-time Software Engineer and I am simply over the moon. Don’t be afraid of following your dreams if your age and the time commitment is what scares you; the time will pass anyway.
I’ll be attending my first Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in a couple of weeks for my company. This is the expo where all the big shots in the casino entertainment industry get together to flaunt their stuff so I’m excited. I’m really interested to see if anyone will be showcasing games that include an element of skill into their slot machine dynamics.
Today at work I finished coding what I consider to be my very first legitimate slot machine game prototype, complete with reels and everything. I am learning so much here. It’s a great feeling.
