Hello mySapient

with 2 comments

It has been a couple of weeks since my last update and a lot has happened since then. I was very much in doubt of what I should do in my last blog post. I had the choice of starting up my own company or to join a company. I chose to go for the latter one and join a company called mySapient, I have already spent a week with them and I am really looking forward to work with these guys. mySapient is a relatively new company, which are developing 3D online games, I am however not hired to do 3D development but rather to work with their web applications.  We are at the moment 4 game developers and me, doing the web stuff. It is great fun and it is really interesting to learn about online gaming and 3D games.

So, why did I choose to go for mySapient? I spoke so warmly about freelancing and setting up my own company. Well, it was no easy choice to make, I had met a some really good freelancers which I could have had the chance to work with, they had this spark and enthusiasm, and I was really tempted to join forces with them. Still there are so many uncertainties running your own company or working freelance, and having a family to support I chose to go down the safe route with a set income.  It was however not just the safety of working in mySapient that lead me to them, all the employees I met had the energy and spark which I am looking for. I also find it very interesting to work with people in a very different sector of computing than myself. I learn so much, and look forward to learn about gaming and their development processes. We have already discovered several practices that are common both for the web world and the gaming world, interesting stuff.

I would like to thank all of you for your support and assistance, it has been highly appreciated.
