This last month has closed a 4 year chapter in my life. I've finished all my exams and coursework and recieved my final grade back. I got a 2:1 which I'm actually pretty pleased with. Now I start looking for jobs. Although I'm aiming to work in the game industry, my course hasn't really left me with anything like a portfolio of games related work with which to show potential employers. Because of this, I'm looking for more general careers related to my degree. At the same time, I'm going to start working on a solo video game project which will hopefully get me up to date with more contemporary tools and techniques. So far all I used for the Network Centipede demonstrator was Eclipse and a bit of MS Paint.
Speaking of the Network Centipede, I'm happy with the way it turned out. I ran a demonstration for examiners with the software running client/server style over 8 separate PCs. No real hiccups either which is good. There are a few things that I've taken away from this project which could help in future though.
