I started programming by getting books on BASIC programs from the local library and entering them into QBASIC, and when I was 10 I bought a copy of Visual Basic 5 and started visual development on my 33mhz (talk about long compile times!). After a couple years I decided to learn the language that most professional programs and games were made in: C++. As soon as I learned about the power of pointers, I was addicted to programming for life
I've worked on a number of programs since then, including IGCutter
, and Freelancer Mod Manager
. I've also had the great opportunity to intern at Adobe over a summer; definitely a dream come true
I'm currently a freshman/sophomore in college, trying to stay awake in boring required classes on Java...
