Hey, I'm Rhyce!
Let me tell you a bit about myself.
I first got into programming when I was very young. I was about 13 when I first used notepad and built my first HTML website.
Coincidentally it was about the same time that I first learned about the Ubuntu Operating System. I made a bootable Ubuntu USB and used that to bypass restrictions on school computers by booting into Ubuntu rather than Windows.
Back to the website; it was very basic and had no functionality at all. Skip forward a couple of years and it got to the point in my ICT lessons at school where we were learning how to use Scratch, a very basic tool for building small games.
Scratch uses a "building blocks" system where you just link blocks together in a similar way to nodes in modern game engines such as Unreal Engine and Unity, but much, much more basic.
Soon after, we moved on to Clickteam Fusion 2, this was where I really started to like game development.
You may know Clickteam Fusion 2 as the software that was used to make most games in the Five Nights At Freddy's franchise.
Skip forward another few years to college and I was in IT. It wasn't the best course in the world. Most of what was being taught is what myself, and others, already knew.
We realised that we were doing a course that had nothing to do with computers.
I realised that I wanted more than basic computer functionality and Excel spreadsheets, I wanted to build! So I left college but had trouble getting into other courses as I didn't have the required previous experience so I taught myself. I taught myself everything I currently know. I restarted with websites, building a few from the ground up with HTML, CSS and PHP but didn't really get along with web development so I moved on to Game Development and now I've been experimenting with App Development.
