About Lucas Weatherby
From Autumn 2018 to Spring 2019 I worked in Communications for a national sight loss charity, TPT as Communications for the Sight Loss Councils managing communications, including websites and social media. For 8 years previously I worked for Sports Interactive on Football Manager and Football Manager Touch as QA Lead. Currently, I work for Scope in my day job as Digital Influencing Programme Manager after volunteering for a number of years on Scope’s research panel. I’m passionate about games, community engagement and advocacy for disability rights.
The world of games and passion for the dev environment has not left me completely. In 2015, I took up coding as a hobby in my spare time, completing a night course in C Programming at City University London. I have been learning continuously since then through Udemy courses and self-learning. From 2016-2019 I led on the “Wrestling Nexus” project at WrestlingNexus.com, a modding community website and Discord server for an independent Pro Wrestling Simulator game. The Wrestling Nexus project taught me many basics in website management and languages such as PHP, HTML and SQL. My coding projects are QT C++ based and stored in Git repositories. It’s given me drive and determination to continue to learn and I’m excited to be working on a very exciting project coming soon.
