Hello folks

Im not very known here, but I'd like to post something to thank you guys for what you have done for me. I wanted to give something back to this community for being such a good place, but I couldn't come up with anything of value to you, so I decided to write a text instead. Thanks for taking the time to read.

My story

It all began around July 2009 when I was 16. It was a heatwave here in Sweden and I was spending my days in front of my computer playing games. It was about a year after my parents' divorce so I had been away from school for about 9 months. During those 9 months I had spent most of my time in front of my computer, playing games, with no idea what to do with my life. While being away from school I grew bored and discovered that one could build small batch file ”viruses” using notepad so I was playing around with that, it's pretty silly now when I think about it. However, after getting hooked up on writing codey stuff I picked up FreeBasic, played around with it for a month or too, then went on to HTML which bored me to death, tried to learn C++ which was so cryptic I couldn't understand any of it. After a while I gave up on computer programming and decided to just play games and try to go outside the house a bit more.

Around July I began talking more and more to a girl called Klara. I had bought a game called The Sims 3 which she wanted to play but her computer couldn't handle it. So I invited her over to play the game at me instead. She was going away to Turkey on vacation for a week though so she told me we could schedule a day after she had gotten home. 3 days after she had left my computer died. As I said earlier, it was a heatwave and the PSU overheated. I was thinking about the possibility to have some computer store repair the computer but it would take a couple of weeks and I could not really afford it. While pondering whether to have a professional repair the computer or try to repair it myself I remembered that I had promised Klara to play The Sims 3 with her after she had returned. The responsible adult in me took over and I decided to open the computer up and manually repair it, even though I had never repaired a computer before in my entire life. I was very careful and managed to fix the computer by replacing the damaged PSU and when Klara got home we enjoyed some gaming together. That was the first step of my path towards becoming a geek.

After my first computer repair I found out I was enjoying playing around with computer tech. I decided to build my own computer, and half a year later, in March 2010, my current computer was finished. By that time I was still unsure what to do with my life though, I wanted to work with something game related, and I was somewhat hooked up on being a game designer, even though I knew nothing about game design.

It was also during early 2010 I began failing in school, my motivation was pretty much non-existent and I spent 3 weeks of only sleeping and eating, never leaving the house. My dad decided to take me to a high school here in Sweden which specializes in game development education to try to boost my motivation a bit. The high school is called Högskolan I Skövde (HIS for short). On HIS they have a bunch of game development related education programs, one for game programming, one for game design and one for game graphics. When driving to HIS I believed that I was going to walk around looking at what the game design guys were doing, but due to some mixup I got to walk around with the game programmers instead. Suddenly I began thinking about building programs again, I was unsure how to do it though. They introduced me to a simple tool, Game Maker. I spent maybe half a year playing around with Game Maker, but for me which knew nothing about real programming, it was mostly confusing since I couldn't find any good tutorials.

In September 2010 some guys in school contacted me because they wanted me to build a cellphone application for them. They had overestimated my technical knowledge but I saw it as a challenge and accepted. I began reading about the different cellphone operating systems and what languages was used to build programs on them. I told the guys that I wanted to build an application for android since everything I had read suggested it to be the 'hottest' operating system out there. They basically said: “Fine just give us the app later”. I began learning Java from the new boston's youtube channel and later from various books, mostly Head first – Java.

About a month later the guys that contacted me told me they were going to do something else instead, so they canceled the android app order. I however had discovered how wonderful it is to program, so I decided to stay with Java and learn more. Now about one year later, I'm still learning, and still experimenting, and still spending entire nights investigating some annoying bug, and still drinking tons of coffee, and most important of all, I'm still having lots of fun!

Because that's what programming is for me, a whole lot of fun!

I have done a lot of things during my first year learning Java.

In December, 2010 I built a horrible, unstable visual novel game. It didn't work though so I scrapped it and began building a new one from scratch in late January, 2011. That one worked pretty well, even though it was an applet and the code looked like shit. You guys helped me out with the code though and taught me some good OOP principles.

In May, 2011 I began playing around with probability and I learned that there is something called 'pseudo-random' (It was you guys here at JGO that taught me that). I built a pseudo-random number simulator that ran 4 different pseudo-random number generators in parallel and logged patterns. I was pretty basic stuff though so no real science here, but you guys helped me out here as well.

In June, 2011 I tried to build an android app using LibGdx, it worked but it wasn't really my thing so I pretty much left it at a android version of my first applet ever created which is called PilenBounce. Guess where I discovered LibGdx, that's right; JGO.

During the summer I was busy with other stuff, but in August, 2011 my current project was born, Project Mathematics, which has also received helpful code from the folks at JGO.

So, one year later, and I'm still learning, still experimenting, still debugging, still addicted to coffee, still having fun, still having lots of fun. Thank you all at JGO, for this would have been very different without you.

TLDR; Thanks to JGO and it's awesome members for being such a supportive community, There are many people here that I look up to and I want you guys to know that you have helped me a great deal on my road towards my dream, becoming a good game programmer.

Yeah, fellow Swede, anime fan, visual novel creator and programmer. We should get married.

There are lots of "game development" schools/courses in Sweden. I've found them rather disappointing though. I visited a college in central Stockholm (which I will be attending next summer) and they had this game course which they were bragging about "not involving programming". It was basically Games Factory for 3D games, so I'm not at all interested in them. All the similar courses just scream "I LOVE GAMES BUT HATE MATH AND PROGRAMMING". Well, I love games, math AND programming, and I don't see how you can be a (really) good game developer without all three.

I visited KTH (which I'm planning to attend later doing computer science), and they had a few courses involving game development. Like I said though, those courses do feel like they are for people who are afraid of math and/or programming, so it's very heavily based on using tools. I had this one ridiculously enthusiastic guy explain to me how he could create shaders without writing a single line of code using a flow-chart-like editor, and he wouldn't stop telling me how awesome it was to not have to do any programming to make games. I finally got away from him by saying that I'm already creating games (you know, WITH programming)... >_>

Maybe I just have gotten a bad impression of them, but I would guess that they are very centered around using game engines, map/engine tools and maybe some basic scripting. Considering I want to study linear algebra to learn more about matrices so I don't have to copy-paste code to get my shadow mapping working, and also have a big interest in game physics ( = mechanical physics), I even considered taking a pure physics course ((Swedish...) Teknisk fysik, du vet. xD), but that set of classes have too many classes I don't have any interest in (quantum physics, electricity stuff, e.t.c.), so I think I'll just do computer science (Swedish again, Datorteknik).

I've heard lots of good stuff about the computer science course at KTH from my friends. I graduated from high school last summer, but I'm currently studying Japanese in Japan for a year at the moment, so I've got some insider info from my old class mates who immediately proceeded to KTH. There's even a "Computer science with Japanese" set of courses, so it's pretty much tailor-made for me. I even have good enough grades to get into it.

If anyone wonders WTF I'm talking about with "sets of courses", let's just say that the Swedish university system is vastly different from many other countries' systems. You can take individual courses, but universities are mainly centered around "sets" (in lack of a better translation, as they are called "courses" in Swedish >_>). There's a few variations of each field, like computer science + something else (like Japanese, Chinese, game making, e.t.c), and you can also add and switch out some classes from your "set" and still graduate with the same merits. All in all, it's complicated. I haven't even figured out how the hell to apply yet.

theagentd, you should check Skövde out, allow me to switch to swedish, it will be more easy to explain, sorry english folks but this requires some words i can't really use on english D:

I Skövde har dom ett renodlat spelprogrammeringsprogram där man arbetar i C++, man läser först programmering och matematik, sedan andra året läser man operativsystem och deploymentmiljöer, tredje året specialiserar man sig med valbara kurser, dock läser man även artificiell intelligens. Jag är inte säker, men jag tror att dom pretty much dissar verktyg som "förenklar" spelutveckling genom att ta bort själva kodandet. Vad jag vet så har spelutvecklarna på HIS (Högskolan i Skövde) utvecklat stridssimulatorer för militären också, så det verkar ganska seriöst. En polare tipsade mig om playground i Falun också, kolla upp det med. Vi kanske bör fortsätta den här konversationen på msn eller liknande då det kanske blir lite drygt för de övriga medlemmarna med en hel tråd där jag diskuterar på svenska xD

*Goes back to english*

So, you are in Japan at the moment? Cheesy I've only read basic japanese so I'm not very fluent in it, ぼくはぼくのともだちとりゅでときょへいきます。 is basically one of the only things I can say xD

Skövde is way too far away from Stockholm, so sorry... xD It sounds way better than I expected though.

Concerning your Japanese: I went to Tokyo with a friend, but I don't know what that りゅで means. You also misspelled Tokyo. It's actually Toukyou in Japanese. xD

Don't give up on your studies - there are enough crap "game programming educations" out there and when you go to uni you should try to get to the best programming education you can, else you will regret it. To be able to do that you need to have good grades, especially in math. So even if the courses are hard, please try to motivate yourself to work harder as else you won't be able to be professional programmers and will regret it big time.

If you think you can handle being a code monkey and risking being outdated in 20-30 years try a bachelor in computer science. If you don't want to risk being unemployable in 20-30 years and actually would like to lead your own projects one day, I'd suggest a master in computer science (cvilingenjör i datorteknik in Swedish).

Most game programming educations of 1-2 years are just game maker to new levels and there you are not able to create your own games and will be unemployable within a few years afterwards.

LiTH I've heard has the best game focused master of computer science education in Sweden, though people are quite boring there and most people I've heard that studied there got quite isolated and alone during their studies.

LTH has some of the best UI design courses in the world (people with UI studies in their master at LTH often get imported by companies all over the world) and are famous for being a much more social and easier for even the most silent nerds to get friends and having fun.

Chalmers and KTH are mostly focused on buisness applications, there KTH is almost entirely focused on finance applications. They seem to be better at social aspects than LiTH though worse than LTH.

Lund is very far though D: (Im in Västerås, about 10 km east of Stockholm) I have been playing with the idea of studying computer science and then get a master level instead of game programming in Skövde, but Skövde seems like so much fun! XD And i heard about 80% of the guys in skövde gets employed to game development companies like codemasters less than a year after their graduation.

Well, I just mentioned the educations I think is where you should go if you want to be programmers.

Though whatever you do, study enough to get the grades needed to be able to choose whichever education you wish when you have the chance.

Most master of science educations demands a 17-20 average grade (with the bonus included there). Try your best to reach at least that high and you won't regret it.

Is that really the case in Sweden?  In North America, it seems that one's career path has the most impact.  For example, a run-of-the-mill web programming job for a no-name company would be a career dead-end.  Also there's an unwritten expectation that a lot of self-learning on the side is necessary to keep up to date with technology.

I don't think a Masters adds a lot of weight unless one wants to enter into R&D or academia.

Good story. Re schools, I went to one of the first 2 year courses in Finland on game making, and though it was a mixed bag covering all the facets, with little focus, it had a huge impact on understanding teamwork and getting hooked up with the local industry. At the end of the course was workexperience, and I was lucky to go into a startup for three years to build some skills. The school was instrumental in connecting me up to IGDA Finland, and though it didn't do wonders for my coding skills it was very succesful, about 75% of the class found jobs in the industry in various positions. ( I didn't go to Uni, selftaught all the way. )

There's always a chance of growing even with little education within smaller companies there you are the only one whom got any knowledge in the field, though if there is a larger company with more than 3-14 employees within programming then you need a heavy education background to be able to go anywhere.

In general it's the same in Sweden, though the difference is that there exist educations in Sweden which are named "civil engineering" though for computer science and other fields. Said education is a lot heavier and much more practical knowledge then within a usual master education. Though as said education doesn't exist outside Scandinavia, Germany and Canada the correct term to use when discussing with foreigners are "master of computer science".

You need that kind of education to get anywhere in Sweden within programming in any larger corporation.

I was very careful and managed to fix the computer by replacing the damaged PSU and when Klara got home we enjoyed some gaming together. That was the first step of my path towards becoming a geek.

Brought a tear to my eye xD

I'm a newbie to Java still and I've only been learning on and off over the past few months. Before Java I used Game Maker which I've used for 2-3 years and still continue to play with it so I can kinda relate to you there.
You've actually gave me the motivation to make a visual novel - better than Pong right? Tongue

Anyhow, you're right, the people here are amazing! I've learned a lot during my short time here and I'll be sticking around.
