This past weekend a few of us were able to get Friday off from work and we went to both Malaysia and Singapore! We visited Kuala Lumpur and went up to the Twin Towers and got an awesome view of the city from a variety of angles. Singapore was amazing, definitely my new favourite city. We only had a day and an half in Singapore, but we packed it with a lot of activities. From riding a Segway on the beach, going on a duck boat tour, a nighttime safari and so much more.
Aside from that I have been put in charge of revamping our current website and making it look alot better than it currently does. My other job is to make it easy enough to update if you have no experience in web programming. I have a couple ideas of what I want to do with the website, but I have no clue on how I will implement it for now. I personally have little to no experience in web programming so this should be an exciting and challenging task. It works out well since I have to make my own portfolio website later on this year before I enter the job market.
I will likely try to do something using HTML 5 as I have seen some really cool web pages set up using that. I have also been looking into WebGL and JQUERY for special effects and to do things like parallax scrolling and what not. The more time I spend researching on web development the more I get excited at all the possibilities. Normally in game programming, when you start its difficult to show people your work easily. Especially if you are still very new to programming due to all the technicalities involved in making an .exe run on several machines. However with web pages you can have a website up and running in an hour, a day if you are new to web development.
