About me

It's Yantong's Homepage, welcome!
Hi everybody, my name is Liu Yantong. Liu is my surname. I graduated from Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), with the Master of Entertainment Technology degree. Currently, I am working in Riot Games as an Associate Game Engineer. 

Before came to CMU, I have received both master and bachelor degrees in Computer Science at Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU), Xi'an, China. During studying in NPU, I participated into several contests and projects, like 3D face recognition. I also learned a lot about software engineering in Microsoft Technology Club at NPU. All these activities helped me to gain a solid foundation of computer science. 

Although I have done good jobs in the past several years, I decided to learn something different, something really fun to me, i.e. the technology to develop video games. Since eight years old, I started to play PC games. So far I have played tens of different PC games, including Red Alert, Mu, Daikoukai Jidai, Championship Manager, Winning Eleven, Warcraft, Dragon Age, League of Legends etc. Along with the increase of number of games I played, I developed a strong interest to build video games. I have developed several programs about basic game elements, such as particle system for simulating natural scenes, Boids system for simulating flocks and schools behaviours. Areas I am most interested in include compute graphics, artificial intelligence, tool development, etc. 

In terms of computer skills, I have significant experience with C/C++, and am familiar with many utilities including Python, Java, OpenGL, CUDA, Subversion, Perforce, Mercurial, Unity3D, Panda3D, etc.
