Hello to you all!
First things first, I browsed this site quite often, and well... here are some great people, interesting topics, and of course helpful tutorials.
So today I thought it was time to join this community!
A few details about me and programming:
I'm from Germany (so sorry for bad English
) and my first programming experience was making a simple calculator and a lottery game at school, both with Java. After that programming was left behind until I went to university where I learned some Scheme and horrible Java practices (though at that time I thought it was the good way)...
Soon I left there because it was too theoretical and went to college (don't know if it is the right word, but it's Hochschule
in German, it's almost similar to an university but more practical), there I had more Java, but this time with an awesome teacher! I also learned some C# (making a simple client for a server game) and C++ (didn't like it though) there, and Visual Basic.NET at internship. With VB.NET I made a Pong game out of boredom (wasn't my duty but my boss liked that game
That would be my rough programming experience until now...
So why am I here? First I wanted to thanks everyone who contributed a tutorial or article on this site, it was interesting and helpful to read them. And thanks to the LWJGL Team for that great Java API! (I know some of them are lurking around here
Also my favorite programming language is Java and right now I'm learning LWJGL and will soon start making some games, maybe it'll be a long way to my first good game but I think I'm in the right community here for that!
I'll hope we all will be on good terms and that we can aid each other!
