I'm a (soon-to-be) university student who enjoys exploring, mostly using the Windows API with C++, and learning what all I can do.
I love playing around with things, so most things I make are smaller applications that do "neat" things I recently find out about or that stoop to any level to abuse C++ syntax to make it look like something else for fun.
I have plans to go through Direct3D in more detail than I have and I might end up with a couple of games and a half-decent wrapper from doing it.
CodeBlocks for single file non-projects that I can't do on Coliru.
VS2012/VS2013 for projects and modern Windows API, as well as C#.
