This post is based on the previous one http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/can-i-have-an-experience-poll/25889/view.html
where we have collected some data about how old game developers are, how many years are they programming and what accomplishments do they have. I strongly advice you to follow that link and add in some information about yourself. The more we now, the precizer statistics we have!
I have taken four numerical values: age, time with java (java years in charts), number of games made, number of good ideas for games.
Here are basic histogramms for all four values.
The facts I see:
-We are decaying with age (no wonder
-There are a large group of people (about 30%) who have an almost infinite pile of ideas
-Kev Glass and fruitmaze spoil the smooth curves because of their overproductivity
(I had to cut them out on some graphics for not having a large scale.)
-With java years nothing is clear so far. Distribution is quite uniform.
And here are some correllations between main parameters.
-The first picture shows us that a very nice trend. People usually start programming on Java at the age between 10 and 20. The derivative of the trend is less than one, that means that new generations start with Java earlier
. Who knows? We may see 5 year children in this chart soon.
-Other graphics are not so informative. It seems that my poll doesn't consider the very time spent on Game development. Here we come to lots of problems. Should we consider only professional and\or commercial games? Being with Java doesn't mean that people were developing games on java. I would like
-As there's not so much correlation between made games and the age I can state that the idea that one man (not the huge commercial company) can make a notwothy game has been widely spread not so long ago.
This one is just for beauty. It represents the dependence of made games from age and time with java.
Don't forget to write about yourself. Let's hit the hundred!
