My name is Jacob Morris, and I'm a Junior Software Developer at sgsco. In July 2018 I graduated from the University of Hull with a BSc in Computer Science with Games Development (1st class). Prior to this I studied A Levels in Mathematics, German and Biology at Selby College. I enjoy all matters of science, and enjoy developing games in my free time.
Currently in the final 20 for the Undergraduate of the Year award for Computer Science, IT & Physics! #computer_science #university
Check out my coursework for 2D Computer Graphics, got 100%! Mirage effect is visible on the website.
Took part in my first ever game jam! Read up about it on my blog!

Let me tell you all about me!
I'm curious and I love to learn about new things - so I've put a lot of emphasis into my education. Education is my main focus, and despite having already graduated and no longer being in formal education, I'm always eager to learn and understand new ideas and concepts. I have also studied Mathematics, Biology and German at Selby College.
Everywhere I look I see inspiration; I enjoy trying to replicate game mechanics, and simulations of real life scenarios (ie, planetary systems). My favourite field of Computer Science is Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. I find myself inspired often by the stories told by Steve Wozniak.
At heart my passion is computer games. Computer games are fun - they make people happy and can bring people together. As a child computer games brought me plenty of entertainment, and I dream to be able to develop a game and pass on the fun that I experienced.

Here's something I'm particularly proud of.
I worked on this piece of group coursework as part of my Games Programming & Advanced Graphics module.
We created a component based game engine in order to run our game.
This coursework received 100%, and was amongst the best submitted.
It was a fun, yet challenging project to work on. It gave me lots of room to try new ideas out.
Never trust a computer you can't throw out of a window.
Below is a selection of my favourite projects.
