Some soul searching and reminiscing has occurred over the past couple of months. As a result, I have an outline of the personal history of computer programming I have had over the past 30 years. I have been interested in discovering, and thus defining more clearly, just what it is about programming games that keeps me coming back to it, over and over again.
It is a near-constant thread running through most of my life. And in doing some research and producing the outline, I’m still surprised at how often I have had a project in the works. Outside of a few distractions and life situations there has always been something going on.
By returning to a more technical role at work I expect the desire and available time for hobbyist programming at home to increase. Hopefully some more activity with Monkey programming will be forthcoming.
