Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jeremy 'Jez' San OBE (born March 29, 1966) is an English game programmer and entrepreneur who founded Argonaut Software as a teenager in the 1980s. He is also a writer and helped design the Super FX chip for the Super NES.San's interest in computing began at age 12 when he bought his first computer, a TRS-80. Within a year he taught himself assembly language, which he soon mastered for several chipsets. San started his career in software by founding Argonaut Software in 1982 as a way to get software consulting jobs with large companies. He worked on security systems with British Telecom and Acorn. In 1984, he started developing his first game, Skyline Attack for the Commodore 64 and also co-wrote a book called Quantum Theory (about the Sinclair QL). He also took an active interest in online services, becoming a wizard (admin) at Essex MUD, the world's first multiplayer online role-playing game.show more
