Patrick Stone first got a TI-83+ while in high school and thought nothing more of it than a calculator until one day, a friend showed him he could program it for math class. This was the beginning of his programming adventures. After making simple programs in BASIC for math, he started making BASIC games and other miscellaneous programs. He learned how to program in assembly in his senior year of high school and is still learning it today. He was the first one to have MirageOS in his high school, and was directly responsible for getting many of his classmates' calculators taken away for playing games. He currently is the Senior Programmer of a group called Suicidal Psycho Software. He is majoring in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University and is a sophomore.
