Updates

With it being 50 days (time goes so fast) since my last post, I thought I’d write a quick update what I’ve been up to in this period and then write some more extensive posts about them separately. First of all I finished my year in industry at Keyfort in August and I was very sad to leave as the whole year went so quickly and I enjoyed the money. I’ve learnt so much at my time there and it also gave me time outside of work to develop my own projects and get involved with extra activities such as the game ambassador role.  So with the end of my internship I had my final report to write up and gather all the reports (bi monthly, presentation and weekly diary) and get them sorted. Quite a pain but really great practise for my final year project which I have started prototyping and sketching some concepts.

I’ve also been very busy creating the new site for the windows games ambassadors. We felt the blog role wasn’t displaying our posts in the best way possible and every single post everyone put out went there, so you couldn’t really talk about your personal life. We changed it to an article based website with 6 key categories (Apps, Develop, Events, Learning, News, Tech) It still needs a lot more content but once the new batch of ambassadors join in October we’ll have an army of 40 so we’ll be able to get a steady stream of articles coming through so we at least have one a day. You can check us out at http://www.windowsgamesambassadors.co.uk/

Another thing to add is that I’ve recently been accepted onto the Windows Go-To ambassador programme too and spent two days Manchester for training days. I’m not on route to London to work for Microsoft at the campus party Europe for a week, hopefully returning with a new RT
