What’s happened last year?

No Comments

I seem to start every blog post with a “ah its been a while” or “long time no see” this time I’m just going to pretend that I have been so busy (which is true) that I have not had any time to do blog posts for around a year…

So now I have got the bullshit intro out of the way lets explain why “I have been so busy”.

The last time I wrote on my blog was around a year ago give or take a few days and quite a few things have changed.

So I finished second year and that was well… kind of a long time ago and I don’t really remember much about it.
I do however remember that I passed my course, probably the most important part of going to University because thats why you are there.

However the biggest change from finishing second year till now is my placement year. Working for a company called Wewana:Play.
A mobile and desktop application development company involved with the creation of an app called “Wewana:Play” (yes same name)

Today I got back the results from the “Simple Flash Game” I submitted for course work posted to my site on the 13th Jan (Found Here)

and well I managed to get 81% I’m really pleased with this result and I am hoping for more :)

In other news I have now placed a back up system on my website so hopefully not going to lose any important data.
and I ordered a new t-shirt, shall upload an image of it when it arrives.

Codecademy is a great online tool that helps you to learn computer programming, at the moment they have a few different types of programming languages including:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Javscript
  • Ruby
  • Phyton
  • Jquery
  • API’s (such as links to youtube, soundcloud)

I recommend signing up and having a good go its a great way to help you learn, even if you already program it will keep you up to date with the knowing.

So today was the hand in for the 3D animation, and I set my alarm for 6:30 am.

Come 6:30 am I wake up snooze my alarm few times then turned off, the next time i wake up its 8:10 am (needing to get to university 9:00 am)
Hurry to University get there, only 5 minutes late, sit down and wait for my work to be looked at and marked.

It comes to me my work gets check a few times looked over and once finished I am told its worth 68% which I was really happy with.
Then as he walks away changes it to 70% so i got a first for my 3D animation which can be seen below and above (click the image for a bigger view)

Total: 70%

There is quite a bit of work I would like to do on it to make it look that much more realistic but other than that I am quite happy with the outcome and the grade I got.

A project for university required the use of creating an AS3 (Actionscript 3) game in flash with the following brief:

You are to produce an on-line game with the following


  • Scoring mechanism
  • Vector movement
  • Collision detection
  • Use animation and sound
  • Has an instruction page

So bellow is what I came up with, let me know what you think.
Sorry about the sound, it can’t be turned off..
