titleTextI have now officially graduated from James Cook University, Cairns, with a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology – Interactive Technologies and Game Design!

It’s just a bit of paper, but it seems that it’s what employers like to see, and for me, the goal of going to university wasn’t to come out with just a bit of paper, but to expand my knowledge and grant myself the tools to keep on learning and creating new things. I love programming and uni helped develop my understanding of all things about programming and computers as well as project management and practices, and now I’m ready to enter into the workforce and do some awesome stuff. Programming is one of those areas where there is still so much more to discover and improve upon, so I find it incredibly interesting to try new ways of doing things and create solutions in places where none existed before and to be apart of groundbreaking discoveries is pretty exciting!

I worked with Mackay Sugar – Mossman Central Mill to create a Management Information System (MIS), to keep track of Honeywell processor racks around their factory, and gather information on their usage as well as help engineers plan and install new racks and components. I worked on this project with Chiaki Sato, another JCU student.

The project used C# .NET Windows Forms, with Microsoft SQL Database Access.

As this project was for a client, I cannot release the source code here.
