Fabian Fernlund

Programmer, PlaygroundSquad 2018

Hi! My name is Fabian. I am twenty years old, and I'm from Gothenburg. I have programmed since the age of 13, and my favourite programming language is C++. I love C++ because of the ability to point to addresses in memory, it's object oriented, but still low level, and there are a lot of libraries available for it. I also like it because it compiles to machine code, which is good for video games, and that is what I programme.

I absolutely love video games! I have played video games since the age of 3! I used to "borrow" my older brother's N64 without his permission when he wasn't home!  When I was 5, my father bought me a Playstation. I was so grateful of him, because now I had my own video games! I actually beat my first video game when I was 5. That game was Spider-Man on the Playstation.

Since I was a child, I wanted to become a game developer. At the age of 13, I started googling how to program, and within a few minutes, I learnt some basic C++ programming. I was so happy, because I realized that it was not at all impossible for me to achive my dreams! Since then, I have kept studying programming, and made some simple games.

I am so happy now that I study at this school, because I know that I'm so close to achieving my dream of working as a programmer for a video game company!

Thank you so much, for reading my presentation!
