I've not exactly been the most active member of this community since my registration - more of a lurker really - so I guess an introduction is called for. Well my name is Adam, and I'm a Computer Games Programming student. Over the coming months, I'll be using this journal to report back on progress I'm making with a number of projects as well as to complain about random things [probably game or programming related].
My programming experience this far has mostly consisted of self-taught C/C++, as well as C# and some DirectX / OpenGL. As well as that I've also been involved in some XNA work, since I attended the GSE Launch Event in Warwick and got given my free Creators Club Membership [smile]. However at the moment, I'm turning my attention to getting back up to speed with DirectX 9 and starting to look into GPU programming.
In 6 months time I start my second year of university and begin searching for an internship - suffice it to say I want to be prepared, so I'll also be brushing up on more advanced C++ [I'm currently working through Sutter's Exceptional C++ so expect a bit of commentary from me on that].
Also - If your hoping for another 'awesome picture everyday' journal, then you'd best bookmark this one for a much later date.
Stay tuned for more updates!
