About me as a person
I'm a student from the Philadelphia area currently studying at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Whenever I'm not coding you can usually find me either with friends or playing sports somewhere. Over the years I've tried almost every major sport, as well as captained flag football, soccer, and basketball intramural teams.
What is New Media Interactive Development?
How RIT defines it:
A handy way to summarize "NMID" is reading it backwards: New Media Interactive Developers develop interactive media that is new. New media are ever-changing forms of digital communication that engage, immerse, and (often) entertain the users. Whereas “old media” involved newspapers, radio, and television, new media has adapted digital technology for the World Wide Web, social networks, wearable computing, and more. New Media development professionals develop and design software for these new media. IGM NMID students explore a multitude of creative and technical electives, including physical computing, interfaces, web, mobile, casual games, production, and more.
What this means for your company:
New Media Interactive Development is a major that focuses on bridging the gap of developers and designers. While the main focus of this major is on the developer side of things, all those who go through this major must also be versed in design and aesthetics. This helps to create a better work flow of workers who are both able to understand and engage with eachother on projects and ideas.
