well i’ve just gone 16 i live in ireland (dublin) and I’ve always loved games and lately I’ve figured out that i want to make games my career so I’ve become interested in programming and i wanted to see if somewhere would take me on to give me a bit of a feel to it[/quote:f27c746230]

Gonna have trouble getting a games companies (especially in ireland), whos willing to take on someone for work experience in programming. Typically, games companies are even slow to take on people on under-grad courses for work experience. Besides the amount of experience you’d gain in 2-3 weeks on site with progamming wouldnt be alot. My suggestion is see if you could get a placement in testing or something, at least that would give ya a feel for the industry. I’d personally target the mobile games developers in dublin (upstart).
