Dark Age of Camelot Developer Profile Q&A

MMORPG.com has published a Q&A with EA Mythic's Matt Kidder, in which the programmer answers various questions about his current job and what steps he had to take in order to land it.
Q: What is your job at Mythic Entertainment? How did you get your foot in the door?

A: I am a programmer for Dark Age of Camelot. I mostly concentrate on Server code, but do client work too. I got my foot in the door by playing a dial up game called Tempest, run by one of the founders of Mythic. A few years after I started playing, they were looking to bring the game onto the Internet and contacted me to see if I wanted to play test and I did. A few months later they asked me to start doing some content work, and few months after that I was hired.
