As you may have guessed by now, my name is Rufus. I graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with a BSc (hons) in Computer games programming. Programming wise my main interests are in iOS development and 3d graphics. I also have a mild interest in ubiquitous computing and anything that just seems a bit clever.
Programming is not only a job for me but also one of my hobbies. I enjoy making little side projects to see what I can build and test the limits of the latest hardware. Normally I create these projects and destroy them… I thought I would start a blog as a way to document/remember all the things I have built/experimented with, build a portfolio and maybe get in touch with some like-minded people!
For most of my working life I have been working as a software engineer building cross platform Augmented Reality applications using Xamarin and Monogame.
I also enjoy taking part in programming competitions when I find the time and even managed to find myself in the winning team of one of the future-cities hackathons. Outside of programming my hobbies include listening to music, hunting for castles and watching TV shows on Netflix! In addition I enjoy playing guitar and on the rare occasion can be spotted doing some charity gigs or playing at birthday parties!
