I’ve been taking a lot of courses on Treehouse and absorbing so much information that I decided to just take a break and start putting some of that learning into action. It’s easy to get so wrapped up in completing courses and collecting badges that you can forget that it’s not about how much you earn, it’s about how much you learn (and subsequently what you produce). I decided to come up with five personal projects for myself that use some of the things that I’ve learned. This will help me retain the information from the lessons. I have completed my first project and I’m happy with it.
Ultimately I hope to eventually create my own original game. These are exciting times for me. If you’ve visited my site before you may have noticed that I’m a gamer, so finally taking steps towards making my own games is very cool.
