God of programming. Except the hard stuff like 3d geometry. And maths. All these bugs creep in. Godamned floating point. And other hard stuff. Ok I admit it, most 18 year old nerds will know loads more about maths.
42 years old, going a bit senile. Learned basic on a spectrum age 9. Made first games. Character space. Learned 6502 machine code on a bbc age 12. Pixels woohoo! Wrote my first multiplayer code shortly after on the school econet (before the internets were invented). It sucked somewhat. Got banned from the school computer room for a week for 'hacking' (sending data from one computer to my friends computer) *sigh*.
Went to africa. Went to uni (learned pascal, then c++ somewhere around then). Got a degree. Went to another uni, got a phd (learned OOP, what was I doing before that???). Decided academia sucked. Programmed games. Got a job programming games. Programmed games. Decided game industry sucked. Quit. Went on a drug fueled extravaganza of wine, women and song. Bought a house with gf and her kids. Dumped them.
Now programming games again, as well as side projects (interactive children's books, DNA stuff, natural language stuff, music software, image editing software). Have dabbled in a huge number of areas, I'm probably more a jack of all trades master of none.
