I worked two years at EA inside AAA videgames industry, currently I am a part of an independent videogame studio developing his first title. Maybe your interested on working in the videogame industry. Ask me anything!
My short bio:
Hi, I'm Javier Bargueño, I studied programming but my first serious job was as a salesmen in food industry. That lasted almost 7 years and I ended fed up of a job that I actually hated.
After 7 years the company fired lots of workers including me. It was hard to face that situation at first, but in fact, it was the best thing that could ever happen to me.
I applied to a QA tester position at EA and they hired me! It was two amazing years where I learned a lot of how a big videogame company works.
Later on, I used that experience to become a part of a startup videogame company,DragonJam studios, which is currently developing its first title. A lot of things have gone different and I thought that if someone is in a similar position than mine, my advice could be useful to him.
Besides, we're running a Kickstarter campaign right now, so, I thought that if a go to a place like reddit talking about my project, at least, I could help others to do their dream of working in something they love, come true.
