Demon Containment in IT and Computing

Setting -- London, present day.


The protagonist is a woman who is a programmer -- or something in IT that allows her at least some of the relevant knowledge. She -- you know how it is -- finds herself saddled with a demon. 

This is spoilery for a story that's going to be published by Solaris, so I'm cutting...Collapse )

I've read the wiki article on programming languages and searched "writing a computer game", but while the results I've found have at least given me some idea of the terms involved, it naturally assumes a much higher level of knowledge than I have.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
