    Talking Hello Fellow Java-ers :P

    My name is Sea and i decided, after watching my idol, to start coding in java! i love coding and i coded in many different languages.
    I attempted the following:
    • C++
    • Actionscript 2
    • Python
    • A bit of java


    And i want to get into java again since i saw the awesomeness and freedom of its coding.
    I am immediatly going to participate and ask my first java question, which has not been answered by the java tutorials (pfft).

    Thanks for reading I hope you can welcome me into your environment

    Who is your idol?

    My guess- you watched Notch's live stream of his development over Ludum Dare?

    I watched it for a few minutes, but I didn't want to get too distracted because I was working on my own Ludum Dare entry! Notch is impressive, but there are a ton of equally impressive guys that simply haven't been lucky enough to become famous millionaires- I really suggest checking out the winning results of past contests (and this year's, when they're posted).

    And not to advertise a different forum, but the Featured Games board over at JGO will blow your mind with what people (real people, just like you and me) are doing with Java: Featured Games - Java-Gaming.org

    I will take a look as soon as I can.

    See JavaPF, I told you Ludum Dare would bring people here (this is at least the second guy)! :p

    Thanks I appreciate it!
    I have played some games that were better than Notch's (such as AWOL and that HOTEL ESCAPE) but i would like to learn a solid language, not like AS2 or GML.. Java is the oldest language that i can be proficient in (C++ might be too difficult and i dont have a compiler).

    Yeah, if you want to get serious about game programming, learning a "real" programming language is a great idea.

    You also might be able to use Processing as a stepladder up to Java: Processing.org

    Processing actually IS Java, but they hide most of the stuff that makes it hard for newbies to jump in. You might want to play with that, then switch to straight Java when you need a feature that Processing can't do.

    I'm actually planning on writing a post about Processing later this week.

    We can talk about this more via PM or on the Moderator board (or even just in the cafe) if you want, but there are a few ways we might work with Ludum Dare. I think the best way would just be to encourage our users to participate in Ludum Dare (it shouldn't be hard, since it's so much fun), and then have a topic devoted to it, sharing game links, etc? It might be fun to have a little friendly competition here as well as in the greater LD community. I'm not sure what else we could do, because participants aren't supposed to work with anyone- and I'm not sure where getting forum help falls into that (plus I don't think I'd have time to devote to the forums on top of LD).

    Anyway, LD generates a lot of excitement about programming, and novice programmers are a big part of our community here, so it seems like a good match.
