Deftware is a one-man-show wielding two decades of programming experience. I have been programming since the days of Wolf3D, Doom, and Duke3D. Becoming infatuated with video gaming and being the take-it-apart-to-see-how-it-works type I began my adventures with coding after asking my late father how to make video games - to which he replied, "Well, you have to learn how to program, son."
I have explored many computer-related creative outlets since then, from graphic design, to music composition, reverse engineering and programming primarily in C. I have worked as a freelance programmer online and have avoided programming for companies as an employee because programming is something I love to do for fun, and I only wish to work on the projects I want to work on.
If I can generate an income by programming then that's a bonus, because even if I was rich I'd still write code. Coding is not something I think of as a career trade skill - to me coding is a way of life.
