Alright, this is my first post. No idea whether this will go anywhere or whether I’ll have the dedication to stick with it, but I’m going to try to make a development blog to document my various projects. It’s been a while since I’ve done any real writing (Engineering lol) so this will also hopefully be a way for me to at least maintain my writing skills.
What I’m up to
Outside of web languages, I’ve got some very basic experience in Java and Python, but nothing serious. After doing some research, I’ve decided to learn C++ over the summer. C++ is one of the main languages used in game development, and as that’s one of the industries I’m considering out of university I figured I’d try to learn it.
My first project is going to be making an extremely simple ASCII platformer, so that I don’t have to deal with graphics quite yet. I don’t expect this to be very difficult as I’ve got a pretty good handle on 2d platformers at this point. After that, I’m hoping to take a foray into the 3d world. I’ll discuss all of that in a future blog post.
Alright, I don’t know how to end blog posts but I think this has been a long enough introduction (I also know nobody is going to read this :P), so I’ll end it here.
