I've just joined the forums (and Java)
before I have been working in Blitzmax and Actionscript, now I've formatted my laptop, installed Xubuntu, Eclipse, openJDK, some C and python libs and I intend to start working mostly in Java for gamedev. (and to be honest to find a job developing enterprisey stuff in Java)
I've done the LWJGL tutorials and tomorrow i'll type in the Slick2d tutorials.
after that I think i'll be back with some questions.
