My rambles Blog

A True Torontonian Summer

I’m currently on my summer holidays, and spending then at home in Nairobi. You’d think that means I have more time to work on my projects, relax, soak up some sun and blog more frequently. Nope. That’s not happening. In fact the opposite had occurred, and I’m more busier than ever, and barely have any […]

Exams Came And Went, Now It’s Summer Time

So clearly I have not been doing a great job in terms of weekly blogging, but to be fair, I’ve had a lot on my mind, and have had a lot of things to deal with. Final assignments due all in the same week, followed by 3 weeks of exam hell. My exams were miraculously […]

Hack For Her Hackathon at Google

So I’ve been bad and missed last week’s blog post, though I have a good(ish) reason – my best friend from Kenya came to visit me, and we had an insane weekend doing everything from Laser Tagging, to Basketball Gaming, to just having a great time! Anyway, time to get on to the tech. I […]

Nothing Tech-y This Week

Sadly, I haven’t had any tech-y things to report for this week. I’ve been super busy working on assignments, and doing my best to pass midterms (coz those are important, right?) I thought I would share some links to useful sites that I have. Music I love listening to music while I work, though if […]

I Won That Round

For this weeks blog post, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about. There were so many possible topics from the hacks, google glass the PS4 “announcement” (and the lack of women at the event…). Sure, I could make most of these personal in some way, however I didn’t really feel write using them. […]

Level Unlocked: Alpha Tester

On Thursday I got a request to come out and be an Alpha Tester for a project that some friends have been working on. I felt pretty honoured that they wanted me to test it out, and promised I’d do my best to make it. I got to the lecture hall where they were presenting […]

FireFox OS Apps Day

This week has been extremely busy in terms of getting caught up with assignments, and getting ready for the “hell week” I have coming up (2 midterms, 3 assignments all due next week…), so I haven’t had a chance to work on any of my personal projects. I did, however, attend a FireFox OS Apps […]

Game Design Deathmatch

I took part in this years Game Design Deathmatch at my University – a Game Design Competition that runs over the winter holiday. It’s the first time I’ve tried my hand at making a game, and I gotta admit, it was a lot of fun! I decided to use Game Maker, a tool to help […]

Alumni Wars Panel

A few months ago, I was approached by a UofT Alumni who became interested in new ways to meet students. After emailing back and forth for a few months, we decided to begin planning on a Panel. Since he was an Alumni, I thought that perhaps bringing in other alumni from UofT’s CS department would […]

Hello world!

This is me saying Hello to the world, so I might as well leave the blog title set as the default one that WordPress issues upon creation now, shouldn’t I. It feels so good to be working with HTML and CSS. What once, when I was 13 or 14, seemed like a terribly complicated language […]
