Nobody introduce them to the soundtrack to Pictionary on the NES. Yes, Pictionary. Tim Follin didn't have to go hard. But oh boy did he! invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=SJwh3erQ…

Industry mutuals, if your studios are hiring QA (remote or otherwise), please hit me up. Our studio suddenly let go a large number of our very talented QA team, some of which who just relocated out of their own pockets, I am devastated for them and want to do what I can to help.

I literally became a programmer because I couldn’t find someone to program my games for me, so I just did really awful programming to fill in until I found someone. I was terrible at it, but it was temporary so it didn’t matter! But then, turns out I started getting better!

Hell, my first real programming job was only something I applied for to comply with welfare, as far as I was concerned I was an artist that couldn’t find work. Was amazed when I got an interview. Was even MORE amazed when I got an offer!

I swear, people talk about imposter syndrome, but my first month as a an official paid programmer was me realizing I was surrounded by programmers that had done courses and had degrees and here’s me, a lil artist who doodled around with code a few times, TERRIFIED

I kept waiting for someone to figure it out, to be called into an office and fired Then when that didn’t happen, I waited for my probationary review where they’d tell me I wasn’t doing well And that didn’t happen either.

Then, about a month after my probationary period ended, I sheepishly asked my lead if I was going to have a review. “Oh, yeah, you’re fine, s’all good!” That was about 16 years ago now. And that was how I accidentally became a programmer!
