LOL.

I love how the OP says, explicitly, that he doesn't want to learn C/C++ and the first 3 posts are "Hey, here's how you learn C++". Seriously. LOL. I may be a C++ bastard myself, but at least I don't actively try to oppress people with it (forced suicide, anyone?).

Then again, I've seen the same thing done with other languages. Sheesh, what ever happened to "open-mindedness"?

(Oh, and Java still sucks, btw)

I'll never understand why they post their ages. I was doing 6502 ASM when I was 13.

'Course, I've forgotten most of it after learning better practices.

Because society has installed a view on people that age is relevent in everything you do.

"WTF? You can't do that, you aren't *insert age X here*, when you're X you can do that, not before!"
"WTF? Yeah I did, it was easy, watch *shows how to perform task Y*"
"WTF? You're grounded!"

The solution? Well, there aren't any so I guess get used to people posting their ages [grin].

Requirement #1 on my list of what makes good developers is: thinks society is stupid and offensive to their (often heretical) beliefs.

If you can't say no to society, you can't say no to much else, can you?

HopeDagger's post got moved after mine and we posted like 15 minutes apart. WTF? I suspect the db server is now damaging parts of queries.

haha, server ownt.


But yeah, I didn't think the age thing really makes a difference. But there's no reason a 13 yr-old can't program. I'm pretty sure that he said it just to establish that he's 13 (the minimum age to register for the site); he could possibly have been lying. I dunno.

Hrm.. When I registered my(first) account here, I remember stating that I was 11. Nobody said anything about it. Is the 13 year old minimum age new to the last 5 years?
