So, my job is at a place called wargaming.net – they make a bunch of games based around a MMORPG server technology, including World of Tanks, World of Warships, and World of Warplanes (the company is also responsible for the reboot of Masters of Orion, though that doesn’t use the server tech I’m working on). It’s pretty cool, all C++ and python in an Agile environment, cool people in small teams. I’m still in my probationary period.
Also! I have glasses now. It took a while to get used to them. For the first week when I walked around outside I had the unnerving impression I was about half my height. And everything warped weirdly in the edges of my vision. I’m used to it now, but I can still get the opposite effect walking around without glasses, so that’s exciting.
