Diego Lizarazo is a Developer Technical Evangelist for Microsoft. He stopped by Middle Georgia State College to lead a gaming workshop.
"One of the examples that I was showing them was made by a high school student in just a little over two weeks in his free time," he said.
Will Haggerty, a freshman at Houston County High School, has wanted to do game design since he was in seventh grade.
He says programming is a field that people at any age can appreciate.
"If you're 40, or if you're my age, 15, you're gonna understand it," Haggerty said.
"If you like games, it's a great way to understand how to create games, and it's an industry that's growing, but also because it's a really cool way to start learning how to program," Lizarazo said.
He says programming is important to learn because different types of jobs are becoming more dependent on technology.
