Sean Scaplehorn is a programmer with 15 years of experience in the videogames industry, who has worked on projects for both console and mobile devices. He has worked on games published by companies including Sony, Electronic Arts, Konami, Square Enix, and Namco. Sean got his first home computer while still at primary school, which kick-started his interest in programming. After learning to code from typing in listings printed in computer magazines, he went on to write his own games and shared them with his school friends. He knew then that writing games was what he wanted to do when he grew up. However, on leaving university, Sean spent a couple of years writing software for printing check books. When he could stand it no longer, he made the leap into videogames development and hasn't looked back since. He worked at Ideaworks3D, the company behind the Marmalade SDK, for four years. In this time he saw the Marmalade SDK evolve from an in-house technology to being a product in its own right, when it was launched as the Airplay SDK. Sean now works from his home in the South of England as a freelance game coder.
