Looking To Interact With Other Beginners

Recommended Posts

Jampol    114

So I started building my first game a text RPG over the Christmas holidays in Python:

 

https://github.com/JamPol/FirstAttemptProgrammingPython/blob/master/RPGBox.py

 

 

I've decided to switch over to C++ for various reasons. I'm looking for other complete beginners since I feel chatting and sharing what is learnt is the best way to learn. I've decided to become serious about making games and not just thinking about making games. I'm tired of coming up with ideas for the "ultimate project" and then realizing a reasons it can't be done. I just want to program game after game and work my way up. I'm not really much for voice chat but there's always the messaging system on gamedev.net, Steam, e-mail, Facebook, whatever works.

 

I don't believe there's any sort of chat section on Gamedev.net if anyone has any other suggestions for beginner friendly chat areas on the web, let me know. Thanks!

 

Also comments on my code and how it could have been improved would be greatly appreciated.

Hey there I just recently started as well and am slowly trying to learn the ropes in c++ as well. I work during the days but spend about 4-5hrs each night reading and learning stuff, it's been a slow process but I look forward to learning more and maybe we can help each other out

I'm up for joining in. I've been learning C++ for a little while now, but I seem to keep getting off track. I think with some other people to join in it'll be easier for me.

I will join with you, i have coded casually for the last 2 years. I am now programming in python and am soon moving on to c and java(school course). Just use my gamedev message system as that will surfice.

I have written a reasonable monster and weapon generator and basic combat if you wanted it for your rpg. However you will need to tweak variables etc.

I am a beginner C# programmer from Dallas, Texas looking for other people to interact with and train with too. Even if you are interested in another programming language I would really like to talk to some other beginners and see what your study habits are and what not. I am looking into Unity to work with my C# skills when I progress that far up as well. Also I have already created my first text based game/engine from a project online. If you would like to hear what I am all about, please don't hesitate to contact me on Skype. My Skype user name is vedinn.

 

Edit: Also, I'm not sure if you guys use Skype but, it is really helpful nowadays to communicate ideas vocally or even just through typing. As well as some other cool applications I know of to screen share and send files back and forth for project developement, etc. Will be adding Mathew as well to see what he's got in mind.

I guess thats a notion to use skype to talk to people here, I would definitely like to collaborate with fellow beginners as well. My skype name is FeedMeLeaks

I can join too, I'm C# programmer and I could use some training with other people to share ideas with in order to study.

Gamedev messages will suffice, I'm checking GameDev quite often.

And you can always post the code here on GameDev, where not only beginners, but also experienced people can help.

I think it's important to get all the help possible, and get new ideas from as much people as possible.

 

And they can also help you improve your code (and by the way, i didn't download it, because i never used Python, so i wouldn't be of much help).

- For sure. Never hurts to have more opinions and advice.

 

Not sure if you guys are wanting to make a hobbyist group or just a beginner studying type group but we could always see how many people are interested and then divide people up into groups based on their chosen language. (Also if we get too many people wanting to work together, than we will probably be forced to make multiple groups anyway).
