Who am I and what do I do?
My name is Abbas Khan and I'm a programmer specialising in game development. I graduated from the University of Gloucestershire's Computer Games Programming course with 1st Class Honours and I'm currently working as a Junior Programmer at Playsport Games.
My Origin Story
Unfortunately, it's not as interesting as a certain caped crusader's. I learnt to program at the age of 13 and have been developing, improving and creating since then. Initially learning to program with Java and the Android SDK to create a few simple applications. More recently I've become more familiar with TypeScript & Playfab.

I hope to continue working, improving & learning at Playsport Games for years to come.
