About Me

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.

Industry Experience

I'm currently working as a Junior Programmer at Playsport Games, learning and improving my abilities every day. It's been a great learning experience and my knowledge surrounding game development, from programming to UI design, has increased significantly. I hope to continue working, improving & learning at Playsport Games for years to come.

Diffblue (Junior Repository Analyst) – Aug 2018 to Mar 2019

I worked as a Junior Repository Analyst at Diffblue. My main task within this role was to analyse open-source repositories using Diffblue’s test generation software, and contribute the generated tests back to the repository owner acquiring feedback for the internal development team.In performing this task, I used a wide variety of different tools including Java, Linux Terminal & Git. I also had to use a lot of skills in order to do my job effectively, skills such as initiative, teamwork and communication.
