Year 2: A Review
July 1st, 2011
My second year is officially over, I find out my results on the 11th.
It feels like it's gone really quick but looking back, I've managed to accomplish a lot.
The year started with a week of talks from industry professionals and my first experience of getting a business card. From there I was in the first group to run BUstation, where we put out a live video stream every lunch for a week. Although not part of the broadcasting side, I developed some simple PHP quizzes for viewers to complete that related to the theme of each show and encoded and uploaded each video — thrilling, right?
From the beginning of 2011 to March we had a major 8-week project, which I briefly blogged about. First, I built the basic HTML structure for the site using best practices as well as I could and then concentrated on the game. It was fairly gruelling and I definitely know that I don't want to touch Cinema4D again! Game work just isn't what I'm into and it was good to realise that at this stage.
Now, during my 'time off' I'm still hard at work both at Fishrod and on a couple of other projects that I'm hoping I'll be able to announce shortly. Suffice to say, life is pretty sweet.
Edit: My results are in, overall I got 68.5 and my second letter of commendation. Put me in the happy chappy pile :)
