  1. Want to put a team together (Group Learning)

    My strongest skill is java also, I'm ok with c++ but im leaving this up to the collective group... once there is a definitive amount of interested parties i will put it to a vote and set up a simple page and a repository on my github account. I have no artistic ability so permian_lizard you are MORE than welcome. if we can get a few more ppl involved we can get this show on the road.
  2. Need advice

    That's true video tutorials aren't the best way cuz it can be hard to keep up and you don't always know exactly what's going on but for some of us who can't just read some written tutorial for hours and remain motivated it can be a nice breather. They also work well as quick refreshers.
  3. [quote name='lonewolff' timestamp='1325642613' post='4899459'] I'd be interested in hearing advice on this, all the same [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] [/quote] i agree!! maybe wrong place but definitely right question...
  4. Want to put a team together (Group Learning)

    Ideally I would like to start small (for the benefit of the less advanced) and move on from there. Possibly a simple text based simon type game to start and then from there move on to something simple involving levels (zork ripoff maybe) and from there do a graphical execution of those two... i figure that's a good month or two of work. Although I absolutely welcome ANY ideas and if there is some way to set up a voting apparatus for ideas or languages that would be awesomesauce
  5. Soooo, I tend to lose focus pretty easily when I work on/learn something alone. What I would like to do is put together a team or group or whatever of novices/beginners and works on like some kind of interesting project. It would be a great way to keep everyone inspired and teach ppl about source control and collaborating with other programmers. If anyone is interested please let me know (comment, pm, w.e) and we can talk more seriously. BTW I'm looking for both noobs and OG's. This way we don't have a blind leading the blind situation... Mentors if u will...
  6. Need advice

    My advice follows in line with the others; the only thing i have to add is once you find a language you plan to learn with be sure to google as much as possible, use stackoverflow.com as much as possible but only after you have tried to find the answer on your own. a good source for intro learning materials are thenewboston on youtube that guy has tutorials for insane amounts of stuff. good luck!
