Hello everyone.

 

I guess that this is my first post, so I would introduce myself. My name is Norbert, I'm from Poland and I love creating games ( I think that's not suprising ). Unfortunately I've noticed that after ending Institute of Technology. Luckily I have many years of experience in programming, but only 2 months in GameDev - so ... I am beginner.

 

And now - to the point. I've noticed that this community is really unique - most of You have great passion. There is a lot of Blogs, articles, indie projects - that's really great, I love it. I really enoy myself to share my experience from the first step of learning new things in this subject.

 

But is it really good to share Your experience from beginning ? I mean - there is a lot of professional blogs which shows You some unique techniques, interesting news from community or their progress in making fantastic games and arts. So I wonder if the blogs like mine should wait some months/years till I get skill.

 

Do people enjoy watching progress of fresh Developers ?

I know I definitely enjoy watching the progress of developers who do share. Sharing progress also lets others give insight and suggestions for where to continue, should you get stuck.

Developers on different levels/stages are probably interested in different topics, and the difficulty of those (basic explanation of AO/SSAO vs. latest performance tweaks to a specific SSAO algorithm), since all have different experience and knowledge. Hence there are many popular blogs :-)

One thing everybody loves, however, is an image, whether it contains a screenshot of a game, a colorful model, an IDE or just plain statistical data.

And one other thing programmers love is well-documented/-described source.

Thanks for Your reply. I think then I shouldn't focus on sharing my knowledge, because it might be wrong on early stage of learning. Instead I should write about traps on which I've been caught, and comment my source code ( ofcourse also I would share this source ).

Don't wait! I, for one, would love to follow the progress of someone who's just starting to get into game development. I started my blog very early on in my journey also and it's now very humbling for me to look back on my own archives every now and then and see how much I've learned. I also got so much feedback and assistance from random readers and friends, it's been extremely helpful.

Czesc, sir. I'm also a beginner, brazilian, also decided to become a gamedev after getting my university graduation. And I'm setting up a blog. Showing your efforts, publishing them here, however paltry they might be, will get you feedback that might be crutial, like Drakonka mentioned, will give you friends to talk about this subject (not sure about your city over there, but 'round here I have absolutely no friends interested on this subject, not even strangers that I could get in personal contact with), and so forth. Like they say, one of the major pillars for building your dream path is forming a community around you, not only to help you technically but also to give you strength and courage when the unavoidable times of sadness and disbelief hit you in the face tongue.png

I hope You would never stop. It is pleasure to see success of people who put a lot of effort and hard work to accomplish their targets

I totally agree with You. I have friends programmers ( greetings for You ), but they have chosen other paths of career ( business developers - like me before ). It is very important to stay in touch with people with same passion like Yours. I would love to follow Your progress. Good luck

I follow quite a few development blogs, ranging from people I'd call experts in the field, right down to people who are just starting. I feel its important to surround yourself with a wide variety of opinions and techniques.
