PROJECTS

Terrain Generator

WebGL application that reads from a "heightmap" text file to generate terrain, also has the option of randomly creating a heightmap.

2D Multiplayer

Small game that furthers on my experiments with socket.io where players can run around and collect cherries.

3D Multiplayer

Small game that combines my experiments with socket.io and my 3D WebGL projects where players can explore a small desert-like area.

Raycasting Engine

A Raycasting Rendering Engine that I built for my final year project during my Undergraduate degree.


ABOUT

Hi, I'm Simon. I graduated from Cardiff University in 2016 with a BSc. in Computer Science and Mathematics. I did a placement year during this time with the Science and Technology Facilities Council in the Business Applications department. It was here that I encountered WebGL and all sorts of new technologies, many of them web based. Since then I've been experimenting with WebGL alongside OpenGL in various projects as well as exploring my enthusiasm for graphics.

For my final year project, I used all that I had learned to make a Real Time Raycasting Rendering Engine as a combination of the two parts of my degree. After this project I realised I still had lots I wanted to learn about, specifically in the Computer Science side of things, so I chose to take my Masters degree in Advanced Computer Science at Cardiff University. I'm currently completing my dissertation for this, titled "Procedural Generation and Rendering of Planets", and will finish in September 2017.
