For the past week or so, I’ve been employed by a small IT consultancy in Abbotsford. With that, I consider the Gameplaydate project to be a success. It succeeded in its primary function which was to get me a new job programming in rails. I must say it’s knocked it out of the park in that aspect. I’ve got a 10-minute commute, my own office and all the k-cups I could drink.
Now you might be thinking that this is the last scrumcast from myself, and that may be true. I don’t really have to show up here to prove that I’m programming rails anymore. However, that doesn’t mean that I’m leaving gameplaydate behind. Projects like these are a great form of unemployment insurance, and the problem still remains: I still can’t play online games with people I know whenever I want. I still want to go to full indie this month and I still want to create a presentation about Gameplaydate. A new video update every now and again might just complete this one-man media empire of James Strocel. I’ll only have an hour to work with each night, but if anything you read on Hackernews is true, then that’s all I will need.
