Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog! Or just welcome to the newcomers of this blog!
I have taken a month-long break to wrap up my programming apprenticeship, work on my side-projects, enjoy the holidays, apply for many job postings, and even work on programming problems that I need to do in order to move forward with my job candidacy with a few companies. But no worries, I haven’t forgotten about you guys!
Now to introduce myself to Last Token Gaming followers, I am Jake Rushing, a recent graduate from UC Santa Cruz. I graduated in June 2013 with a degree in Computer Science: Computer Game Design. Which means I can make games!..to a certain extent. As I can contribute in most areas of game development, my main specialty is a programmer, so roughly 90% of my work is done by code. As I studied game development and programming, I looked into other areas of development, such as Web and Android, which led to my interest in other technologies. I hope that one day I can be a self-sufficient game developer as well as being knowledgeable in other areas such as hardware, back-end web development, and maybe music composer for games. Kinda like the jack of all trades kind of guy.
On the side, I am a self-proclaimed independent game developer, which means that I may write a article in regards of the development of my projects here and there. But since I just got a job offer in the San Jose area (a little to far for commute), I may have to put that on hold until I get settled down from moving and from starting my new job. On the bright side, I may have more time to work on my side projects than usual in comparison to my previous situation (living at home and looking for a job), so you’ll see my first post on independent software development in the near future.
Speaking of which, I am currently working on two side projects right now. One of them is an android app that it is still in concept phase. As for the other project, I am working on the prototype of a game idea that I wanted to work with for a while. I can’t reveal what it is yet, as I want to keep it a little quiet for now until the prototype is ready for the public. I can say that I want to release this game on Steam Greenlight and hopefully on both Android and iOS devices.
That is about all I have to say for now. Like The Last Token Gaming page por favor and enjoy this super corgi! I’ll see you guys soon!
