I’m Orfeas – a tireless being that codes stuff and runs on coffee.
I’ve been programming since I was 12 years old. I still remember writing my first program on Turbo Pascal in a compiler that didn’t include mouse support (navigation was performed by the arrow keys and various keyboard shortcuts). While I was in middle school I participated in various programming contests in many of which I received distinctions for my performance. Needless to say that I wanted to program stuff for living.
Right off high school at the age of 18, I pursued my dream and joined the Applied Informatics department of the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki. Fast forward 6 months later on, I joined Microsoft as a student partner (MSP).
While being a part of the MSP program I focused on .NET developing and honed my public speaking and presentation skills as a main speaker in more than 10 events accross Greece. Last but not least, my hard work rewarded me the title of the Community Manager for the MSP community in Thessaloniki.
All this just wasn’t enough and in June 2015 I discovered the world of game development. The thought of me coding video games for living is bone chilling, thus I decided to leave Microsoft and shift my focus on game development. Moreover, I decided to attend a different university that included heavier focus on software engineering in general, thus becoming an undergraduate student in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
Currently, I’m coding my own tech demos, writing UE4 Tutorials and creating more awesome content for my website. In case you want to contact me for really anything you want, use the contact form in this website and I’ll get back to you usually within a 24-hour period.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
