I’m a student at Makersquare in Austin, Texas.
That’s all the background you really need, but let’s dive a bit deeper. I have a life long love of computers, I mean using them and playing on them from when I could walk, life long. I was trying to make them talk to each other, because I knew they should be able to, before I had any concept of what made PC different from a Mac.
I’ve loved games my whole life, and I’ve always wanted to make them. Any game, any where, with anything. A deck of cards or a terminal window was all the same to me. This is what got me started.
I’ve been writing code for about 10 years, since I was 8. I’ve made some cash from it, but nothing really worth-while. Originally, I learned to code to make games, then I made one and I was good. But what really took me in was solving problems. Games are great, but they’re not as useful as a mortgage calculator or a application that displays words from a pre-processed list to help a class of school children learn their vocabulary words.
