[/color]Daniel Levitin - This is Your Brain on Music
I graduated college as a computer programmer over 10 years ago and I've done very little programming in my career in IT. Unfortunately I never followed my dreams of getting into the game development industry. I currently work as a business analyst in the healthcare industry and the only programming I really do is some HTML and CF MX7 since I manage our internal and external websites. I have a bit of VB and VBA knowledge since I work with Access and Excel regularly but I've decided to take the time to learn a new language for game development: C#. I did learn C and C++ back in college but I haven't touched it since so I only remember some of the key OOP concepts such as inheritance and encapsulation but even those are still vague.
I'm going to be following the "How do I make games? A Path to Game Development" by Geoff Howland article for starters and I'll keep everything open source so that other amateurs have something to start with and so that more proficient programmers can comment/help with my progress. Following that I'll start developing an SNES style console RPG cause that's where my love of gaming and game development came from and it's the reason I got into programming in the first place.
That's all for now I guess, thanks for reading.
