Programmer Genesis Stories

How did you get started with programming, what made you want to learn, and what were your first languages and games? Who were your rolemodels (ie, mine was John Carmack, mainly)

If you can, have some of your old stuff ready for you to play and screen-share. :D


I just learned that "CST" is for when we're not doing daylight savings, and "CDT" is for the summer daylight savings time stuff

In my case it was a long time ago, but I started with a language called "Amiga BASIC". Unfortunately the games I wrote there are all lost. I did transfer the Amiga discs at some point, but subsequently lost the .ADF images when I overwrote my backups.

Him, my role model is Richard Stallman, even though he wrote no games :p

I was messing around with the command line, being all "computer savvy" and discovered batch scripts. Then a friend pointed be towards GameMaker, and the rest was history.

Oh, I didn't realize. I'll try to dig up some early stuff, and try and fix my webcam.

Is this still on? I'm not sure if anyone saw half my post as in my last post I used a quote box and people tend to skip straight to that. Anyway, I said..

I might tune in but I don't know if I'll have much to contribute to the discussion.

I plan to attend! Then again, I planned on attending the last two....but I'm REALLY gonna try to make it this time. I have to remember to set some time aside before it starts, to figure out how the whole thing works, as well as how my webcam works.....and shave, lol.
