Web Designing & Video Games
I have been a computer enthusiast since the days when PCs were almost analogue till today’s when we have ‘super computers’. Maybe the craziest craving was the love of video games which in one way or the other must have led to what I am today.
My name is James Lanes and I’m a web designer. This is a career I never fathomed because I always felt that I was destined to be a journalist or lawyer or maybe an activist — I know being an activist is kinda weird but I loved anything that would expose me to the public. As you may conclude I love publicity.
However, during the hay days while playing video games on our family PC, I usually experienced several technical problems but the most irritating the crashes which resulted from the graphic processing on the PC. This made me always result to playing light games which never required much graphical use. The problem was that these games were not as creative and entertaining as I desired and thus felt bored at time.
Solutions to PC Problems
The most apt solution was to stick with my good friend, and long time neighbor, Mike. He was also a brother of a computer geek. His bro had done a diploma in Computer Science and very proficient at diagnosing and providing solutions to PC problems. I never thought we would get along due to age differences but within time we were the best of friends. Actually he is the one who inspired me into the world of computers.
He was the one who would help me in upgrading the graphic processor whenever it had failure as well as helping me understand more about computer graphics. The more I got knowledge, the more I desired for more. I was completely enthralled by PC’s as Mike’s brother helped me in ensuring that I could play video games on the PC in a more user-friendly manner.
All About the 3D World
When graphic representation matured to the 3D world, I must have been one of the first to get the information and I admit that this really changed all my perception; it made me appreciate PC more that I did and gave me the desire to know more about creating 3D animation. The request to learn more about 3D was granted by my parents when they accepted to pay fully for a computer course about the technology in a local college. From then hence things were different.
I realized the potential in computers as I tried to create and animate my own video games which I successfully did with time and became better at. The potential of 3D in technology was the leeway that I used to assert my position as a graphic designer and soon, I was the talk of town. I established a website to cater for 3D image clients online and soon I had a great following.
As time went by, more hidden gems in the online market made me undertake a more advanced course of coding computer programs and applications and eventually becoming a web developer who majored in mobile applications, website themes and web plugins all geared at providing the best and most friendly interface for website owners.
Although at times I long that I could have become a game developer, the potentials and resourcefulness that I experience as a web designer is so immense and makes me believe that I made the right choice.
