Three years on

October 24th, 2011

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.

    Ich bin der Ansicht, dass die Ausfallrate zu hoch ist im Hochschulbereich als gut. Ich denke, dass Hochschul cadetships müssen von Universitäten formalisiert werden, damit die Studierenden in ihrem Studienfach auf einen bezahlten Teilzeitbasis arbeiten und studieren in Teilzeit, was eine Verknüpfung von Theorie und Praxis und Zementieren einer symbiotischen Beziehung zwischen Qualität akademischen Ideen (Theorie) und üben (was wirklich passiert am Arbeitsplatz).. Egal, o
