So you want to know more?

Well let's start with the basics. Hello! I am Ben and I am 20 years of age. I've always had an interest in Technology in many different ways. My main focus was to try make computers do what I want even if they aren't meant to. I went through college doing a Level 3 Sub-Diploma in IT which covered a range of IT topics from computers repairs to business processes. This is where I found my love of programming.

Through college we had quite a few programming assignments. Firstly we started web development using Adobe Dreamweaver even though it was supposed to be a basic website at the time I wanted to see what I could do. I started to add navigation to the page and Parallax scrolling to background images. We then moved onto game programming in Game Maker Studio. Where a lot of people would make pong or snake I decided to try and make a randomly generated dungeon crawler with the goal of surviving and getting through as many levels as possible. Needless to say I like to try and smash expectations. I moved into my first job at the start of 2019 as an Apprentice in a computer repair shop in Leamington Spa for 8 months and have been in Service Desk Analyst roles since with the ultimate goal in mind of joining a Software Development team.

Personal time is mainly spent trying to come up with ideas for programming or gaming. I've tried my hand at Video Editing which I spent a bit of spare time doing where I would compile clips of funny moments or clips into videos for people to see on YouTube. I also hold the 3rd best speedrun time of the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered S.S.D.D level. I can also type at around 90 Words per Minute.
