  • Interview Number 1 – The Software Engineer

    Welcome to this months blog entry. As I promised last month, I would like to give some insight into how engineers view their own profession, and what kind of things to expect if you chose a career in software engineering yourself. So I’ve asked a friend of mine to be my interviewee…

    ME : Give us some background to who you are and what you do.

    Eng : Well, I’m a software engineer at a large video  games company. I’ve been working in this position for 2 years here at this company, and 3 years before that I worked at another video games company. I am currently a level 2 Software Engineer which basically means I have enough experience to take charge of designing and implementing features on a game. I am working on a title that I’ve been working on for a year. It is due for release next year,and will ship on PS4 and Xbox one. The title will also have other spin-offs, such as a free to play mobile title, and some web site tie-ins also.

    ME: Why did you enter the Software Engineering field ?

  • The Cloud and The Internet of Things (IoT)

    The new exciting technology that seems to be here to stay is IoT. Have you heard of it ? If not you’ll soon be using it without even knowing it’s here, or there, or everywhere. and believe me it will be everywhere. It is the only, truly omnipresent technology. Before I start discussing what on Earth it is though, it’s worth noting that if you are embarking on a career in Engineering, you must become a Zen master at the art of the T.L.A. The ironic thing about T.L.A.’s is they are Three Letter Acronyms themselves, and the irony is the self-describing quality of this oft coined term. Today’s Blog T.L.A. then is I.o.T. There will be a little mention on A.W.S. also, actually I think I will summarize…

    I will be looking at how we can use a M.K.R. M.C.B. as an I.o.T. device, talking to A.W.S. using U.D.P. Got it ? O.M.G.
