WHO IS JOEL?

I started my love for technology when I was young, owning my first computer at the age of 9. I started playing simple web-browser java games, then eventually branched off into more advanced games such as MMORPGs. This solidified my love for computers, games, and how it all worked.

I decided to start my hobby in I.T pretty soon after playing my first MMORPG. I started by learning Java. It's a simple language, with memory management handled for the programmer, and has clean and easy to follow documentation. I ended up creating a few scripts for a bot for a video game (Powerbot). I ended up selling a few of these and made some nice money at the age of 15. I stuck with Java for far too long, the ease of use of the language just kept me hooked. However after a few years I realised it wasn't the best language for my passion; Video Games.

In 2013 I started my journey at University at QUT - studying a Bachelor of Games & Interactive Entertainment, majoring in Software Technologies. This course has taught me a lot, from how to design a mobile application, to coding in Python, C#, C++, and further extending my knowledge of Java.

However over the years I've found myself losing motivation for platform development - games, applications, etc, and instead have now found myself with an insane thirst for web development; I really feel this is my career and what I want to do. I'm currently learning immersing myself in learning HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, jQuery, and Bootstrap.
