George Willcox

I'm in my first year at the University of Cambridge, reading Computer Science.

Programming is something that has always fascinated me, I code mostly in python, but also do work in C# and Java.

I use Python to make games and other applications with the pygame module. This is as, personally, I find it more interesting as a programmer to create my games from scratch - even though it still is satisfying using an engine. I have made several applications, including a pseudo-RNG, a utility for performing linear matrix transformations, a raycaster, Missile Command, a moon lander game, and a platformer with a custom sprite class. At the moment I am currently working on a graphical calculator, Mario Kart (SNES), and Nebulus (Tower Toppler for those over the pond).

Scratch was the very first type of programming I ever did, and is what got me in to coding. I have become quite experienced at using it now, after a quite long while. I now create physics simulations and small games on it in my spare time. I've created platformers and more advanced things like this Mine Cart Simulation, as well a couple of cool, small things like this String Simulation.

I'm quite new to coding and still have a lot to learn.
