Hey Ian,

This is Brian Langevin.  I hope you remember me, I was in the game classes
Fall 2001 and Spring 2002.  I did "Plaid" and "Sphere vs. Sphere" with Cody
Sandel.  Anyway, I wanted to thank you for teaching those classes and going
out of your way to make sure people from the industry came and talked with
us.  After I graduated, I took the summer off and started applying to
various game companies around Dallas.  Fortuantely, Paradigm Entertainment
was good enough to actually give me an interview.  Long story short, I
started work here 3 weeks ago as a Software Engineer working on a game based
on a movie to be released next year.

I wouldn't be here right now if you hadn't offered the game classes.  I
wouldn't have known about the game industry and I certainly wouldn't have
had knowledge of game programming.  I hope you can use my case to convince
your students that "yes it is possible to get a game job out of college".

I hope that you are doing well and that your work with Fletcher Dunn and the
book are going equally well.

Sincerely,
Brian Langevin
