Remove the Rubber

Some thoughts from my flight over why we should be throwing out the eraser from school and everyone should be using version control. Help the creators of the future with your success and failures.

Someone give +Colt McAnlis​a teddy to hug. Very shouty. Good stuff mostly a bit high level like most the talks. Still enjoy his compression talks.

I'd also be into some Java8-style loving too. But here's to you native-folk getting good stuff.

Why I ripped out Wordpress and AngularJS and moved to a static generation system powered by hand tooled Go.

Never turn down tea if it's offered
It's impolite and that's how wars start - 8th Doctor

also never say no to a cheeky Nandos or a mate after midnight, that's how adventures are missed.

Story
Tagline
Games Designer & Programmer in love with the world and it's Insanity
Introduction
I'm a little bit crazy but I love adventure.

I'm a Designer & Programmer currently working at Climax. I love stories people are the best source for them but if they aren't around games, movies and books will suffice.

I like to round off my flighty side with a grounded level head and knowledge base, thanks Mom. Other skills, hobbies and pleasures include, sky-diving, drama, writing, comics, painting, parties, reading, and anything which can catch my intrest.

Programming 
  • C++ (preferred)
  • Python
  • C#
  • Java
  • Pascal
I really enjoy writing in order game-play, AI, and effects. I'm comfortable with Tech but get little joy outside of tech demos and toys.

Design
Much like programming I've been doing from a young age. Everything from devising childhood games, writing & running roleplaying modules for conventions, board-games, even wrote a whole world and role-playing system which attained minor populaity at Tuks University.

Smells of mildew, old fashioned 70s furnishing, coarse wool blanket over the duvet and below par amenities. Noisy plumbing. Room service was palatable. CRT television with poor sound and handful of channels, couldn't read news ticker. Only one socket visible for use. Was able to sleep the night but not much past that. I'm informed this used to be a flagship hotel prior to it's purchase decades ago. Kept on life support ever since.

Nice burgers slightly greasy chips. American style diner with friendly service staff and pleasant but not memorable atmosphere.

This amazing little tea shop is on the top floor. It's quiet with a wide selection and lovely atmosphere.
