Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am Milind Gour, a student who likes to explore on his own. I’ve completed my higher secondary studies in a boarding school. Apart from learning the lifestyles, I learned to code in the school. I was (and still am) genuinely interested in developing my own applications, games. Currently I am pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Engineering under the Computer Science branch at Shri Vaishnav Institute of Technology and Science.
I really love to code and made it my full time hobby. I usually spend hours (sometimes even up to 10 hours a day!) coding, debugging and improving my apps. I like to explore the APIs and classes provided on Windows platform, so that I can use them when I need. I’ve built my own libraries for the common things like button, slider control, checkbox, radio button... which I use in my XNA games built for Windows Phone.
