    2018 was a good year

    I passed all but one of my Unisa exams last year and I’m feeling positive with continuing to study for my degree this year. This semester I registered for Introduction to Programming (C++) which I unfortunately failed last semester as well as Visual Programming I, Maths and Mining (Physics, Chemistry) as part of my extended program. Now I have to wait for Unisa to approve the registration before I can kick off this year’s studying. I also started game development using C# and Unity with a colleague to make a few small games with the end goal being a competitive FPS.
