I’m Christopher Jadoo, a developer that enjoys creating experiences that my users enjoy. I’ve worked with people from various disciplines to create works such as Remnith, We Are All Animals and Quipucamayoc. I graduated from the Digital Futures program at OCADU with a Bachelor of Design.

Remnith is a VR game where the more you miss the stronger enemies get and the game is now available on the Steam, Game Jolt & the Oculus Store. The main roles I took in this project were team lead and programmer. More information about my involvement on the game can be found on the project page.
Quipucamayoc was a project that required two groups of dancers across the world to be able to dance together using the Kinect to track the dancers and Unity3D to combine and display them. I worked together with Sally Luc on a four month contract to get the Kinect data to network using Unity. More information about the project can be found on the official page.
I was hired at Public Studio to work with a team to create a large digital art piece that utilized game programming. The position was a payed internship that officially ended after the first month but I continued to work on the project for an additional year as a regular employee. To read more about my involvement on the project visit the project page.
I studied at the Ontario University of Art and Design in a program called Digital Futures. Digital Futures is a special program in OCADU where students are treated as innovators and are given the freedom and tools to pursue their individual paths. Here I learned how to work with students from various other disciplines such as art and design to create a wide variety of programs that normally couldn't be created in a Computer Science program. Throughout the program I utilized this environment to create multiple games and virtual reality experiences.
Speedy Business Centre is a print shop where I worked designing business cards, post cards, pamphlets and various other promotional items. I worked for free for a semester through a high school co-op program but got hired as a regular employee for an additional year.
" Chris worked with Public Studio on the programming for a real-time environment that is permanently displayed and running as a public art work in the High Park neighbourhood of Toronto. Chris' aptitude for game programming was enormously pivotal to the success of this project. His ability to take creative direction while simultaneously maintaining technical proficiency and attention to detail made him a very valuable member of the project team. He communicated well and resolved bugs and changes promptly and professionally. Chris comes as highly recommended from Public Studio "Via LinkedIn
