What types of games do you like to make? What type do you play if any?

I very much enjoy simple casual games on tablets or phones. I have mostly worked on large console titles, though I'm more attached to computer gaming than consoles. I play FPS, RTS, Adventure, card and board games.

Do you make games full time or part time?

Full time for now.

What skills do you have pertaining to game development? (Programming languages, artistic talents, animation, game design, etc...)

I have programmed in C, C++, C#, Java, Python. I enjoy putting together multiple elements of audio, graphics, and programming to produce great user experiences.

If you are not making or playing a game, what do you do with your time? What other hobbies or activites do you particapate in?

My twin boys keep me very busy, and I love playing with them whenever I can. I also love to read, watch movies of all kinds, and try to get exercise when I can.

Introduction

My name is John Nocher. I have been a programmer in the games industry for over 12 years. I do mostly mid- to high-level programming, with a strong interest in controls, cameras, fx, audio, and other gameplay-related work.

What John N. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group of people supporting each other to make their own games. It's very hard to make games, especially when it's not your job. Very easy to get distracted by life and not finish. These meetings are a great way to keep you going.
