This is really exciting to me for a variety of reasons:
- I like helping people make games. Its awesome to help someone learn the technical aspects in game development so that they can craft interesting experiences. Art games anyone? (hint: go play pOnd)
- I know that by helping others, I am helping my development community in an important way. When I was a freshman, I worked with several seniors on game projects and game jams. They helped me every step of the way and it's the only reason I'm where I'm at today.
- Maybe I can help people not write such terrible code. Us programmers are supposed to be the enablers right? Aras had some really good points in a recent presentation.
