In my CS-135 course we're essentially doing an introductory course to programming. Seems a little odd given my existing knowledge with programming, yes? The introduction is performed with Scheme, a functional programming language. A very strange and whacky thing thus far to a programmer like myself who was raised on the joyous lands of imperitive languages (like C++, Java, Python, etc).
Although different, it's all essentially the same. Just a new way of looking at an old book. So far the it's been very easy; I breezed through the assignment. I asked my teacher today -- this guy is awesome, BTW -- and he assured me that the class was actually the ideal one for an experienced programmer, and that the material would begin to pick up in short order. Fingers crossed. The one-notch-down course (CS 134) is a Java course. *shudder*
My university gives me a free (legal) copy of Windows XP. Woot. I've put in my order for it, so soon I'll be a legal man.
Er, I mean, I, uh, already am. I mean, uhm..
Side Project off of a Side Project?
Looks like I may be deviating once again. For the gamedev club that I'll be co-running this term I need to get some valuable XNA experience and write some small sample/test/fun stuff with C#+XNA as material for teaching our upcoming membres, and for nice stuff to talk about in the slides for the presentation I need to make. Which I haven't started. Guh.
So, in short, we may be seeing a few small/fun games dished out in the near future. Maybe this weekend, since it'll be the closest thing to free time I'll have this week.
But after that, back to Project Ex. And then back to Skirmish. (I smell too-many-projects-syndrome (TMPS).
