I was born in 1999 and have been programming for the past year or so now(5/25/19). Literally as soon as I got out of high school.
This is currently all I do. I've been learning through applying the theories I create in my head about how programming can work. All while trying my best to ensure I program my game as effectively as I can.
I hope to after releasing my game, work on actual software that people can use. That would help improve the software industry in some way. And as a byproduct, the world.
If you're interested in my game project / things I have learned from. Check out my twitter. Or look at the pastebin I've linked here. The pastebin contains the more "premiere" resources that have helped me in my pursuit of knowledge related to programming / software architecture.
Thank you for reading this! I hope you have a great day!
