I've seen a LOT of reds post on the forums, but NEVER.. not once.. seen a "programmer" tag Is it just that you call it more specific things, or do the programmers never check the forums? I'd love to talk about coding and the game industry and stuff! (see: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=33889181#post33889181)

I agree with you, I have never seen a engineer/programmer post during my 2 years on this game.

While you're here, can you answer what programming languages you guys use? I am studying game programming at Arts Institutes at San Diego and would like to know if you guys C++, C#, Java, etc etc

We use a wide variety, depending on the project. The ones that you mentioned are always good to learn for fundamentals.

I still want the title "Does the Codez", but I'm not sure how well that would go over...

For the record, the Game Client is coded in C++, and I loooooooooove talking about programming.

I'm pretty sure it's been stated that the main game code (not PVP.net) is written in C++.

Whereas PVP.net is written in some kind of unholy union between Javascript and a language whose entire purpose is to run pointless O(x^3) algorithms in the background on every click.
