In addition to teaching myself programming, I'm hoping to meetup with other local programmers. The hope is that I can meet some people that can help walk me through the more difficult parts and possibly collaborate with. I've joined up with "The Cleveland Game Developers" over at Meetup.com. I've had great success with the art group, Dr. Sketchy, and am hoping for a similar experience.
Also, the top picture is a potential robot design created on my ipad. Hope to update again soon.
