I initially was in more of a test role at work but after a bit of pushing and a little bit of extra hard work I've managed to get myself as part of the dev team on one of the new projects which is great. I have had to learn a lot more over the past week or so to do with IBM's specific development tools and about their processes.
I am currently at the design phase of a new project and it is great as I'm getting to be involved with the meetings with system architects and getting to add sections to the main design document. At the moment there is a lot of prototyping and trying out various methods and tools to see what could work so it is all very fluid and quite fun.
Anyway after doing a fresh install I have now got to reinstall most of my development tools and do a load of windows updates, and basically get everything back to how it was. sigh.....
The positive is that it is really quick! And it will be even quicker once I've bought a new GFX card.
As another point, with spending so much time on Linux at work I have decided to use my other hard drive for a Ubuntu Install. I am hoping to one day get the JBEngine up and running on Linux, It is quite a long way off but I've used all cross platform libraries so far so the work shouldn't be too difficult.
Anyway going forward I basically need to get Visual Studio installed and then start looking at getting this ECS put into the engine as it's really starting to bug me.
