Dave Thomas

My love of programming goes back to '93. I was 12 years old and had received a hand me down commodore 64, my first exposure to the Basic language. By the next year I was writing text adventure games with my high school friends in QBasic on my 486 Dos box.

I side tracked into sound engineering after high school and did not enter the world of programming professionally until the late 2000s. I went back to school and completed 3 diplomas in software development through part time night courses over 4 years. All the time maintaining a day job in IT.

In the summer of 2012, I found myself working at my first non-IT job. A full-time actual programming gig as a junior game dev. I have since moved on to other great opportunities. It's been a dream come true being a programmer.

  • Android Development
  • iOS Swift & Objective C
