I have been visiting the GameDev.net community for a long time now and I have finaly decided to show my support by becoming a GDNet+ member. It is almost hard to believe that I have been lurking on this site for almost 4 solid years now with every minute being worth it. I have been known to have this strange obsession of just observing things and I very guilty of it here. It has always been exciting to see the next generation of developers learn and grow by trial and error and the experienced teach and guide by example. Because I know that there are others out there like me I chose to use my new found privileges to start this journal. Since most of my time is spent with my head either in code or in a pillow hopefully I can find reasonable time to write here. So who am I?
My name is Shea Street (aka Corman) and currently I am a co-founder and programmer with Tantrum Games. I have been programming now for about 16 years and I am entirely self taught. I still do contract work and provide consulting on the side but my core work is here with Tantrum Games.
You can check out articles on some of my work in the following books:
