Gareth James Jones Portfolio

Welcome to my portfolio website

Here you can find out About me, or take a look at my CV.
You can find all of my open source projects here aswell, and links to my twitter, linkedin and my github. On University Assignments you will find links to all of the web development assignments I have done at university so far.

About Me

Welcome to my website. This site is currently still under construction so if you run into any problems please contact me(details on contact page) so I can fix them as soon as possible
I'm Gareth James Jones, a second year Computer Science student at Aberystwyth University, Wales. I'm currently on the degree course BSC Computer Graphics, Vision and Games. This course covers software development basics in the first year, the university focuses on java programming as an access point since it is an easy language to pick up and allows students to work anywhere In the second year I am currently working in Java, C, and C++ on more specialized projects within the curriculum.


Outside of University

So obviously my university degree is a large part of my portfolio, but it's not the only part of me. Outside of my degree I work on projects to develop my programming techniques in areas not yet covered by the course, such as game engines and more complicated algorithms for physics models.
I have had experience with a few different game engines however I am currently working with unreal engine due to the C++ code which it uses, and its large library of graphics models, textures and animations which are easily accessible. Currently I haven't released any of my projects in Unreal engine, but hopefully once my university assignments are finished I will have more of my free time to work with the engine.


So if you have any questions about anything I might not have covered or that you cannot find around the website feel free to contact me using the details providied on the contact page. Thank you
