For me it started from running own Lineage 2 "pirate" server and understanding of SQL and how the game data stored :)
I always admired the people who hosted private servers for games.
When I was young and played games full-time, I had neither the skills nor the money to pull that off.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
