Playing Video Games One Frame at a Time

Video games are hard and as I age my reaction time has gone down. But I'm also a programmer and I can write tools that solve this for me. This talk will go over what it means to play video games with the assistance of tools and show a few examples of how this can be done using C++. From games that support creating tools to injecting your own code into a game. This is an introductory talk on this topic but it will cover a few lower level systems interactions. No video game knowledge is needed.

His work focuses mainly on programming with C++. In his spare time he unsurprisingly likes video games and puzzles but he also enjoys non-fiction audio books and it would be a very strange day if it were not filled with music in some way.
