I looked at all of my previous journal entries and the way I have changed my mind, started, and stopped so many times, it is almost embarrasing. I am older and wiser now and I know what I want (just not positive on where to begin).
Speaking of where to begin:
I read all of the forum posts about which language to start learning in. A lot of people say to start with C++ because that is the norm for game programming. Other people suggest an easier program such as C#, Python, or Java, etc. I have taken two semesters of Visual Basic, two semesters of Java, and one semester of C. I have also read two books on C++.
I think I finally decided to do the C# workshop since it is still in the beginning and it is only running for about three months. In the meantime, I am reading this book: 3D Math Primer for Graphics and Game Development.
Anyway, I hope I am heading in the right direction and I am looking to this community to keep me on track.
