We are very pleased to have been able to chat with Adrian Herbez, who impressed us with his journey as a game developer. Adrian has an Art background and was able to use this and become a very successful programmer with hard work, passion, and persistence.
Adrian gave our ninjas great advice on how to stand out as a programmer amongst those who have a Computer Science degree and many years of programming experience. He also provided very insightful information on what one needs to do to succeed as a programmer.
This particular Tech Talk was quite fascinating as Adrian was able to transition from an Art field to becoming a Web Developer, to a Senior Software Engineer at multiple gaming companies, and to eventually being the Co-founder of a mobile gaming startup! This is very inspiring for our ninjas as many of them are interested in game development.
