September 11th, 2021 - I've got a job now

I've been hired on as a teacher assistant for the Centre of Entertainment Arts in the Advanced Game Design program and I am now no longer job-less. 

Woo !

Just finished my first week as a teachers assistant(TA) and it hasn't been too bad. I'm helping out in mostly beginner programming classes. So far I'm enjoying it since I do find some enjoyment in teaching and I get to talk about programming which most people don't really want to hear the details about or understand.

However, the part that most excites me about my job as a teachers assistant is that I gain access to the programs library of different game design and programming courses and a chance to interact with experts and veterans who have created/shipped games. The game design courses should be pretty interesting to check out since I've only focused on programming so far. Hopefully, overtime this will make me a more versatile game developer and allow me to make better games.

I've seen some of the portfolio pieces for graduates from the advanced game design program and have been pretty impressed with some of them. 

I don't have any game projects to showcase today but here's a short experimental clip of a VR experience inspired from Inception. Inception is one of my favorite movies and I remember one of the most visually stunning scenes was when they manipulate the world physics in the dream world so that the city bends in on itself. My goal in this VR project was to recreate that effect and for me to see what it might feel like myself.
