I'm a self-taught hobbyist C# programmer. I usually use XNA / MonoGame to make my games, but I'm trying to wrap my head around Unity. I like Ludum Dare because it gives me incentive to actually finish games, and I get feedback I would never get anywhere else. Over the summer I help kids program Minecraft mods. I've been programming since the first grade and I absolutely love it! I'm currently working on an app for android outside of Ludum Dare. Check out some of my games!
If you're confused about names, I go by Xephyr most commonly, or NumNumDude.
