Every great developer you know got there by solving problems they were unqualified to solve until they actually did it.
I have worked in IT for over 25 years, I have had varying roles in different sectors including The Ministry of Defense, Healthcare, and Housing. I have done varying roles from a programmer, application support, systems implementer, system administration, system architect, project manager and team leader. More recently I have gone into games development for myself with a long time friend, Tony Brice.

Thanks for dropping by.

It was written by Andrew Braybrook and was published by Hewson Consultants. So I set myself the challenge of recreating the game. You can follow its progress on my […]
This was a mini project that I started on the Mac in Xcode when Swift was still in Beta and SpriteKit was in its infancy. I was trying to work out how to use the Tile maps (created in Tiled) that I was working on for Paradroid. I started to look at creating a collision […]
