Well I'm back, but who knows for how long, I admin I'm not a leet blogger :o Anywho, made it through 2nd year of my program, and kicked quite a bit of ass. Secured myself a 16 month internship as an Embedded OS developer with one of the big players in the Smartphone industry (hint, it's damn cold up here in the winter, and I like hockey). Funfun, anyway, ......

Sorry to the hosts, no offence, but all the cool kids are making myspace'ish homepages, so i'm following suit, I won't close this down, because geekswithblogs is definately fit for a dev blog, and, well, im not really "dev'ing", so, till i actually get coding something that isn't necisarilly worth "marks" then i'll use this site :) btw, im still living ......

Already semi-bored in my first class of the new semester. Going to try to actually post on the blog on a more regular basis than last semester, for those of you ( i belive there are two of you!) that read it, have, well, more to read.

w00t!, well not as great as I wanted, but still.... 85.6% avg is pretty good! Lowest mark was 78%, and I expected I would get lower for that class. My highest mark was 100% in C programming but thats no surprise. Next semester I am setting the goal for a 90% average, and try to get 100% in C++. WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS 5 YEARS AGO ......

Well, it has been a few weeks since I started my software engineering program... wow, lots of “review”, learning things such as loops and if statements.... fun fun.. But it's all good, meeting lots of peeps, my classes have students ranging from age 17 to 33, a very diverse group of people. This review stuff is good anyway, so I should get ......

ok, so you probably already know, just had to make one of those “im so hyped i have to blog“ posts. http://msdn.microsoft.com/d... Read this too, its funny :o http://forums.microsoft.com... do you agree with the “xna lack of vision?” ha ha ha ha ......

So, at my place of employment, I am frequently asked the question “Do you think the [ps3/wii] will be [better/worse] than the x360?”. Well, they just made it much easier for another “counter-strike” to to be developed, in the sense that cs was created by hobbiests and look at its commercial success. I'm sure there will be a few, ......

I've been keeping my ear to the ground about this “Affordable” development kit for xbox 360. They are releaseing an “express” edition for free! Hope I don't cause 3 red lights!!!! Link : http://www.microsoft.com/pr... ......

wow im a leet blogger, 1 post per month, or less



So,,, I just discovered that the dev library that i first learned C++ & game programming on 7-8 years ago (Allegro!!!) is still alive and kicking, and will work with VC2005 express!!! weee! now this will DQ me from any VC# stuff i am entered in, but hey, the main goal is to learn, not to win :). So, i can use allegro to get myself up to speed, then ......

In addition to all the fun learning resources on the web, I'm continuing formal education as well this fall, starting a new Software Engineering program at a new school. Mmmmmmm, code........

”In the information age, the barriers [to entry into programming] just aren't there. The barriers are self imposed. If you want to set off and go develop some grand new thing, you don't need millions of dollars of capitalization. You need enough pizza and Diet Coke to stick in your refrigerator, a cheap PC to work on, and the dedication to go ......

I found another awesome resource for C# + DirectX, http://einfall.blogspot.com/. Quite honestly, I want to code from the ground up, and refresh my programming skills while doing so, and this resource seems to fit my needs perfectly. But the MSDN tutorials are still very helpful, the more resources the better the learning experience ......

Hello all! I've never kept a blog before, and I have never created a Windows application before either. So I'm starting out “Learning C# The Fun Way!”, mmmm.... games..... We'll just have to see how it goes. I haven't programmed in over a year, and it was some simple asp with vb, and it has been 3 or so years since I have programmed any ......
