First Entry!

Sign in to follow this  


Woooooo! My first GDNet+ Journal entry. I am hoping that this journal may become an interesting read for a few people, but for now it serves quite nicely as a place to get my thoughts down.

I am going to introduce myself and hope that somebody says "hi". My name is, in case you haven't noticed, Mike Popoloski. I live in West Milford, New Jersey of the good old USA. I am 17 years old (18 in November!) and am currently a senior in high school.

I taught myself C++ a few years ago, and have been working as a programmer for a small magazine fulfillment company called Fulco for about 3 years now. I like to code in my spare time (obviously) and quite enjoy C#. I joined the SlimDX team a few months ago, and am currently working on DirectInput (yuck) and several small other tasks.

Currently, I am looking into learning 3D modeling, although I completely suck at it so far. Hopefully, I will improve enough where I will be able to make a decent game that doesn't look like complete crap.

My current goal is to create a small 3D deathmatch space shooter that will look cool and be fun to play, although I don't have much spare time at the moment to work on it.

Well, that's it for my first entry. Hopefully there will be more in the coming weeks.

Welcome :-) I look forward to reading your journal as you progress with learning 3D programming.
