Three years on

Portal cake with three candles On 23 October 2008, on holiday in Devon with my girlfriend, I read an article in the Guardian’s Technology section about the UK games industry. From that point on I was certain that I wanted to become a developer of some kind. I wrote more about this in Finding your passion.

It’s now three years and a day since then, and I’m winding down at my current job in preparation for a move to San Francisco, as I somehow managed to land myself a job at Twitter as a junior front-end engineer. Which was nice. I’m unbelievably chuffed that I’ve managed to get to where I am today, and I hope the next three years will be just as exciting as the last :)

    Nice story you have (here and in your “finding a passion” post).

    I started to learn to program about two years ago. At the time, I didn’t even know what a variable was, but I always had a sense of wonder about how computers and the internet worked; it all seemed like magic.

    For the first year I worked really hard, and I could comfortably program. But then my motivation seemed to drop. The field was still interesting to me, but I found that programming was causing me to spend most of my time alone in a darkened room. I had a lot of tech knowledge, but my life in general had become less interesting.

    Perhaps I could restart my programming journey, this time being sure to take more breaks and get out more!

    Good luck in San Francisco.
