I always have been sporadically developping games and other small things...
I have some knowledge in general networking and websites architecture, and also in Linux and Unix stuff 🤓
I started GameDev when I was like 13 so I can't really remember why, but I know that my first project is a Scratch game x)
I then used Python, C, C++ in terms of language. As for IDEs : Thonny IDE, Geany, Pycharm, and Notepad xD
