Who is Ameen?
My name is Ameen Altajer and I do programming and game development professionally, whenever I have the time I do enjoy playing guitar.
I’m the founder of the game development scene in Bahrain under the name of Bahrain Game Developers (BGD), I work with a fantastic team that is made of fantastic passionate volunteers helping me in getting Bahrain to my ultimate game development vision.
What does Ameen do?
I love to experiment with lots technologies, tools and computer-related fields like: .NET, OpenGL, Direct3D, XNA, Unity3D, Unreal Development Kit (UDK), PSX, PS2, PSP, PS3, PS Vita, Linux, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Reverse Engineering, Network Programming, Debugging, Build Tools, Cross Platform Development, Virtualization, Security and as you guessed.. WordPress.
I’m still on the look for more technologies to work with.
I’ve been doing freelancing for game development for quite some time now, it’s very nice to help people to get them close to complete their dream projects, I’m currently working on my game project “Deadgear” along with fantastic professionals, we’ve been working on it for more than two years now, I post a lot of updates about it in here.
I do understand how hard it is to get a good grip in this industry because it’s not your ordinary one, I remember myself gathering the bits and pieces all over the web and libraries to understand what a “game loop” actually is and all of that nonsense jargon that I used to hear about while trying to learn how game development is working. That’s why I wanted to create a local community here in Bahrain, where people can go and discuss everything related to game development in all of its aspects.. and I did, the local game development community in Bahrain: Bahrain Game Developers (BGD) has been gaining momentum since it came out to light on December 2012, I just get goosebumps everytime I hear people talk about BGD and respect the endeavor and the progress that we made so far, check the scene news in here: http://www.bahraingamedevelopers.com.
I’ve been playing for almost ten years now, I do respect true and meaningful music ranging from classical to rock and roll and my all time favorite.. metal, as for the other genres of music, there are ones that I understand and many that don’t make any sense to me.
