I’ve finally finished school. It’s been a bit of a journey, about 6 and 1/2 years, but I did it. In a few months a Bachelors of Science, majoring in Computer Science will be given to me by UBC. I’ve had a good go. I took a lot of neat class on a lot of interesting subjects. I’m happy with my education and record. I had time to write some really cool code on my own, like the mindstab Go AI competition, learning Lisp, and Cortex (partly for school) to name a few. And in between all that I also have had the time to travel, to go to some really cool places: Mexico, Guatemala, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Colombia. Life has been lucky and good.
Now time for something new, a new phase. And so to kick that off, I’ve landed (luckily) a one month trial contract at a web company downtown, as a PHP (and other assorted opensource technologies) developer. This is an amazing opportunity and I hope it goes well. From the two days I’ve had with them so far I really like it and would be very happy there permanently. Either way, I’m now much busier than I’ve been in a while.
