In Journey East, I was tasked to learn a language I’m unfamiliar with (Java) and learn how to develop APIs in a short amount of time so I could be brought to work on the server.

Spontaneous and Fast Learner

I’m a self starter, and thrive in fast-paced, dynamic environments.

I have a knack for learning new technologies in short periods of time.

Excellent Communicator

I’m a very chill guy to talk to, and I always try to put myself in other people’s shoes.

I write technical articles aimed at the general audience, which have been very well received on sites such as GameDev.net and Gamasutra.

I also maintain my own blog at arianv.com
