How to annoy all your friends on Facebook.

UPDATE: FACEBOOK RECENTLY PATCHED THIS. THIS MEME GOT ZUCKED.  SORRY EVERYONE. THIS EXPLOIT NO LONGER WORKS.

How to get started in gaming as a programmer

Hi there, my name is Steven. Most of you might already know me, but for those of you who don’t and are new to my blog... I’m just your friendly independent game developer. I’m self-taught and learned everything I know about programming from library books, online documentation, tutorials, trial and error, and a lot of patience with myself. I'm far from a good programmer, but I firmly believe that ANYONE can make a game so if this helps someone get started then I'm all for it!
