Hoho quite an interesting topic!

Well I'm also 27 year old
I'm currently a 3D modeling/texturing artist in a little game company.
on this project http://ironmeka.com/

I'm a self taught programmer. I've been into medical school from 2001 to 2006 (while I learnt html/css/php and a bit of javascript) and then I switched to artschool from 2007 to 2011.

I began using mmf2 near february 2010 at school for little homework projects. I discovered Construct Classic near the end of 2010 (konjak mentionned it on his website so I though it was worth a try).
Instantly pleased, I took the risk to do my degree on it.
It turned out well. I posted a topic on it last summer :D

Anyway now I switched to construct 2 'cause it's so much easier to share and well... html5 is the future :D
Also I'm interested in gameplay around ipad-like devices (you know touch, gyro, accelerometer, etc...) but I don't have any ipad yet so that will wait...

I still use CC to build some script for work like xml for batch rendering on xNormal or some pixel manipulation thingy.Yann2012-01-14 23:59:01

30 years old, started 15yrs ago with couple paper/pencil games for friends. After that I found QBasic (few text adventure games and a platformer), loved that program. Then 1/2 year playing with Warcraft 3 editor - it's very easy, yet powerful. Their scripting editor remind me kind of Construct's event editor - screen. I've made only one "defend the tree" map.
Than I hadn't been doing anything until I found Construct 3 years ago. Don't remember how I found it, but here I am, 3 years later, still in love.

@septeven I see she works in the same company as me and went to the same school. to be honest her face does tick some neurones so I probably saw her while we were both student between 2007 and 2008. But I don't know her. I'm at the company's place only once a week, I work at home the other days.

Oh I see... you were at cohl too :D made quite a nice career since thenYann2012-01-14 23:57:50

If you want to try it, I'd start with Starcraft 2 editor (War3 is too old now). You can look at this video where the guy is working with the editor. I like the easiness of both (SC2 and C2) program editors. I prefer C2 of course, because you're not restricted to SC2 world (you can mod, skin etc., but that's huge amount of work) and SC2 players, and most importantly, I can sell my game.
