d3t welcomes Andy Wilson to the team as Junior Programmer. Andy tells us a bit more about himself…
Tell us about your background and experience prior to d3t?
I originally came from an accounting background (James Todd & Co), but it turned out it wasn’t for me. I studied games programming at the University of Bolton which boosted my technical skills and confidence. I found the problem solving and mathematical nature of this field addictive. The advent of new technologies and ways of doing things in the industry means there’s always new things to learn!
I was enticed by the variety of projects that d3t is involved in, which will enable me to gain experience in lots of different areas. My first project is a mammoth challenge and one I’m looking forward to getting stuck into.
What was the recruitment process like?
Very professional. I received a programming test to complete within 24 hours and progressed to the next stage. The interview itself was much more relaxed. Phil and Scott put me at ease and focussed on getting to know me better.
Tell us some interesting facts about yourself.
When I’m not being a dad, my favourite things are playing games (racing, stealth, beat em ups and Mirrors Edge), going to the cinema and eating out.
