Hello, My Name Is Joeb Rogers


I’m a 20-year-old games programmer currently based in Birmingham, England. I’m currently finishing off a degree in Interactive Entertainment: Game Development at Birmingham City University and am expected to graduate in September 2017.


Games Are My Passion


My earliest memories of playing games are on my dad’s NES at the age of around 2, I grew up surrounded by games. By the age of 5 I was avidly drawing and designing my own worlds, I had already decided that I would make games when I was older. Throughout the years, my passion has only grown stronger as I picked up programming and began actively working towards my goal; nothing beats the feeling of seeing your own creation come to life on screen.

My degree is based around practise-based learning in a studio environment, meaning every module is focused around building real games and gaining industry-applicable skills. We also get the opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary teams for real industry clients over many months. Whilst this takes up a lot of time, I also like to build side-projects and prototypes, freelance as a website developer and participate in the occasional game jam.
