My name is Richard, I am 19 years old and I am from Slovakia. Programming games has always been exciting for me.
I started making games when I was 10 in Game Maker 7. At the age of 15, I downloaded Python and learnt many new things. The variables, data structures, algorithms, time and memory complexity, ... I am programming in Game Maker Studio nowadays.
I have been participating in problem solving competitions (Math Olympiad, IT Olympiad, Math Kangaroo, ZENIT, ...) and achieved great results (e.g. winning the regional round). I have been three times on a national IT camp (called KSP), once on a national Math camp (called KMS) and once on a German Math Kangaroo camp.
I will continue studying at IT High School in Bratislava this year.
I was really happy when I found this kind of competition. I consider it as a challenge and a chance to improve my programming skills. Good luck to everyone :)
