Not adword - but i want share it:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/snair/o-watch-a-3d-printable-smartwatch-kit-for-kids?ref=category_featuredhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VscJiLO11h4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOLOLrUBRBY
i feels old
p.s I want share it: because after i watched it - I remembered something very important that I forgot with time.
Things are not so complicated as we think about them now
Simple example when I making first games – it was so simple code
All gui in code like inventory.setPos(150,30) – and it was fun to write this, test it and play.
Now I have so many advance libs: export/import external format, Gui manager etc..
I can do more work in 2-5 times with them then previous,
But for some reasons it no so fun as before, even painfull some times (many understand me)
The irony I have more advance system to do more work in less time but I spend less time to work,
Because this complication that makes all process heavier (in head).
And remembered that before it was so simple and now it still the same)
return me fun and inspiration to make more =)
Its not about throw away all libs – its about don’t think hard)
(and not only programming ^^)
Up: also - more offtop)
Also – internet full of free educational courses
personally i watch fully http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-002-circuits-and-electronics-spring-2007/
and hope find some time for others.
we have many internet tutorials how to - but you may know basics, or its be very hard to understand and copy-past solution – so university lectures and official tutorials give such basics
(java I learned from Oracle tutorials and http://math.hws.edu/javanotes/contents-with-subsections.html
thanks to Hobart and William Smith College)
Why Mit videos and not Edx
For me not important certificate (I do it because am interesting)
but important to watch video ride on time - when I have such time, not waiting week or two for new part
(or I not see such option on EDX)
It be good to go university and learn all there – But it not end of you’re world if you can’t go there for some reason,
If you want learn something: you have internet – use it, search and you find what you looking for)
IMHO: I like EDX idea – but it looks so old technically for me and hard to fast use:
I want full list of video on some theme available in any time,
with tasks to solve and hints for solving most common mistakes + end solution of task.
And ability to download all this to solve it offline)
IMHO ^ 2: And yes I don’t have graduate When I try go to university – they say I stupid to go free education
even not pass me to second mandatory exam,
But call me after 2 weeks that I can go to Uni on contract (payed) XD
(even without second mandatory exam which is mandatory for contract too ^^)
In any case I don’t have money for it , same passion to trying in another Uni in my country
Simple see how education is useless for ppl in my country and don’t what spend 3-5 years for nothing (see many bad example in own life: one of which I have “A-” for chemistry in school but for 5 years teaching it I never hold in hands test-tube ^^, we simple don’t have any practical experiments XD)
But now there are free online tutorials and I can not even express how much I am grateful for them.
Many successful ppl don’t have Full graduate – so don’t give so small circumstance like lack of education stop you.
p.s This all my personal opinion – and it may be not so good for you,
but in any case you have ability to learn something for free if you have internet connection)
