Well, to be precise, it all begins with things that you want to show off to the world that you created... on a portfolio website. I have decided that as the end of my university years approaches, and the ever so ghastly reality of the world of work is slowly crushing my soul by the seconds, it is my responsibility to take the matter into my own hands. Over the summer, and the year of university after, and perhaps years after that, I'll be building my portfolio. I need to be secure and ready, as the world of computing is the only one that I can imagine working in 'til I am no longer able to work. It's the only field of study that I am immensely interested in and enjoy to greatest extent, so it is now my responsibility that I will be able to work in computing (games development specifically), and I will passively and actively do so through many projects that I will create in my own time - projects which I need a website to be posted on, so that the whole wide world can see them.
So yes, this was my grand obligatory first blog post. I hope it is clear as why I am doing all this.
