How Multi-User Dungeons taught me to program
Carl Tashian

This is more or less my experience! I started coding on MUDs around age 12, ran several games, contributed to several codebases. For me the allure was with LPMuds, though I did produce a string of snips for ROM and Merc codebases (yeah, like a lot of us I also hacked a bit on GodWars when it was leaked).

MUDs allowed me to interact with programmers from around the world…not bad for a kid living out in the sticks at the other end of a 14.4 ;)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
