I'm from the US, I'm in EST (GMT - 5)
I program as well as game.
I have been programming on TI-Basic for about 6 months, I also dabbled in ROBLOX Lua for a few months.
I'm working on a Text adventure (I posted about it here, this site won't let me link it to you yet), and I also edited the Saving page (in Techniques) a bit, when adding a saving method. I also previously created a text RPG also, but I didn't release it yet.
