About the Site

Let’s Make a Program is a site that exists for two main reasons:

  • To teach new coders by doing things with them
  • To “learn in public” by blogging while trying new things

This site is not academic, and the programs / tutorials will not be perfect. But that’s the point - we’ll all learn together by writing code.

About the Author

I’m Noah Wright, and I’ve been programming since I was a kid. These days, I’ve got a degree and a bunch of professional experience, but I started out as a self-taught developer.

Early on, I came across a tutorial for writing a shmup. It walked me through each step, made some mistakes along the way, then corrected those mistakes. That way of learning gave me a much better understanding of the code I had written, and I hope to replicate that sort of learning experience on this site.
