Looking for a job, side projects
Currently I am looking for a programming job. I have noticed on TradeMe jobs there are hundreds of positions for senior developers as well as .net programmers. I have decided to go ahead and learn more .net as it may be very useful it the future. I have also downloaded Unity 5 now that it is free to touch up my knowledge on that.
I am going to add an old project I worked on last year for a weeks to my portfolio. The project was generating scrabble board layouts from a random word list. The idea came to me when I was at a friends place and saw their shower curtain was a giant sprawl of connect scrabble words. I added multi-threading, a scoring system (generates multiple boards, rates them using a fitness function and then picks the best) and a camera style system. Pretty basic, but it was fun to make!
