Chris Hargrove's Fireside Chat

As you may or may not know, Chris Hargrove does a regular column for loonygames called "Code on the Cob". In it he is writing a computer program (in the column), and you get to watch it progress. However, due to the Thanksgiving Holiday last week, Chris forgot to write his article. So, he whipped up a piece detailing his own past, and how he came to be at 3D Realms. It's a fascinating read, especially if you want to break into this industry. Here's a piece of what Chris wrote:

You can't control random chance, but if your goal is to program games for a living then you can still tilt the odds in your favor. You do that by learning whatever you can, whenever you can, however you can. Don't expect somebody to spoon feed you through your education... that may work when you're younger, but it doesn't work that way with this industry.

Make sure to check out the full article over at loonygames today!
