Horror Stories of RanBlade



Made it past the programming test

Posted by , 28 October 2011 - - - - - - · 186 views

Well good news! I made it past the programming test and now I am on to the phone interview. The process ended up going a little slower then I had anticipated but Im getting closer. It has been such a fun experience and Ill keep you posted but wanted to let you all know I have almost broken into the industry.

On a different subject my android hearts game is coming a long nicely. The whole game logic is there right now the 4 AI's will play a full game against each other. Working on a couple bugs and deciding how I am going to do the gfx part. I hear there are some good android engines out there but haven't really looked into them yet. In the meantime while I make up my mind there and work on my couple bugs in the messaging system I am implementing the human player and the interaction so it can be more of a "game" then a A.I. demo lol.

Hoping to know more about my future by next friday. I would like to give a big thanks to the gamdev community, even though I haven't posted a lot you have all helped me so much in just reading the forums and the articles on the site. I owe a lot of my success to this site and hope to be a bigger contributer in the future.

P.S. for some reason spell check isnt working.

RanBlade.




Nevous today.

It all comes down to this, I finally may have a interview for a game company working on mobile games here near my home. The owner of the company is going to be calling me in the morning. I am so scared and nervous even though I feel I am ready for the challenge.

It is going to be a complete life change for me that I have been working on for almost ten years now. Currently I work as a crane operator for a sub company of General Electric. I travel all over the US and this is what I know as I have been doing it since my wife got pregnant in college. Easiest choice was joining the union with my dad and make good money. I have worked since then on my programming skills so one day I could do what I love and stay home with my family while I do it. But as this is all I know it is really scary to me to change so much of what I am doing on a daily basis. So lets hope I don't mess this up and I can finally make my move to professional developer.

See you on the other side. And thanks for reading my rambling here.


Java is not my friend.

While working on this hearts game I have been using Java. I’m not a fan. I like my ability for scope in C/C++. It may be the IDE it may just be the language, but I feel like I have no control over my variables and I’m forced to do it in a manner that [...]
