Hello and welcome to this blog.
For those of you who actually read this, and I can’t imagine many will, I mean who the hell cares about who I am? No you’re here for the blog posts and what they contain, or maybe you just ended here by accident. But for those who read it, you’re might be wondering what this blog is about.
Well, first let me start by telling you about me.
I’m a thirtysomething year old Danish guy, who’s been interested in games and what comes with that territory for as long as I can remember. I’ve worked with games both on a hobby level and professionally for the last 10 years, as a 3d artist. My weapon of choice in that area is softimage, but I’ve had the chance (and sometimes misfortune) of working with 3dsmax, Maya, Lightwave and Blender. I’ve done my fair share of tools for a couple of those programs, nothing I ever released publicly though, and some tools in-house so even if I wanted to share those tools I would not be able to.
I spend most of my time in front of the computer in one way or the other. Music is one of the most important things for me, in fact this blog originally started out with music in mind, but it just didn’t stick. If you’re interested in some of the music that I’ve mixed together you can always head to my soundcloud page. Maybe you will find something you like. I also dabble in my own music productions, but being highly self-critical I haven’t released anything yet.
But enough about me.
So back to the topic at hand, namely this site.
Over the last year, I’ve worked together with the creator of libGDX, Mario Zechner. Unfortunately Mario is a very busy man, and libGDX as well as real life work has kept us from releasing anything together yet. Hopefully it will happen in the future. But for now I’ve decided to try and learn programming myself.
This is no easy task, which I think many of you will agree on. Imagine if you suddenly “unlearned” everything you knew about programming and had to start all over. Huge task ahead of you!
So to keep myself motivated, I created this blog. Also I’ve learned that writing about the things I do, helps me memorize them better, and getting comments about the code I post is great as well.
In the end, I hope you will find this site as helpful as I find writing it.
