My name is Mark Eliasen, I am 24, and I am diagnosed with infantile autism.
I am just a small time, web developer from Denmark who began web development in late 2010, which do not give me a lot of years on my back in regards to web development, but I am a dedicated and quick learner.
I have a great interest in computers (and related subjects) and animals. I initially coded Visual Basic when I was about 13, coding MUDs and more. I got into a bit of trouble in those years as well and told myself I would never touch coding again... well I held that promise till I was about 21. I then decided to give coding another shot, and my passion for creating/developing sparked back to life, and I have never looked back since! I absolutely love love love love creating stuff for people to use, specially if this "stuff" is a game.
I have also just begun learning C++ with main focus on game development, which is what I have always had a huge passion for. I am hoping I can one day contribute and set my mark on the game industry and push the edge of game development even further, specially Sandbox MMOGs!
Having issues with school and people, it has been a really tough road in terms of education, hence the reason I only just graduated from primary school. I tried for almost 8 years to complete any High School but without luck (I have only very recently been diagnosed, at the age of 22, so I simply did not understand why I had all those issues I had as a child, hence the reason I kept trying). My biggest wish was to go to study Computer Science, but I have come to accept that this might not be possible.
I am now trying my best to learn to code myself, and I am dedicated to make something of myself even without an education I will show the world what I am capable of. I will keep pushing, I will keep learning, and I will not let my mental handicap keep me from pursuing my dream.
I do not want pity, I do not want people to talk to me like I am a fucking moron - All I ask for is a chance to learn. What I do want is comments on the quality of the code I do, what is good and what could be improved. Feedback is what drives me forward and it is a very efficient fuel.
I try my best to keep to keep a very high standard in my code as I learn more and more, and the best way to describe this standard is with the quote: "Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live."
