Just introducing myself here on the forum. I've been looking for a good Java forum to join and this one has looked the most promising so here I am.
I've been programming for the last 6 years. I started teaching myself C/C++ then I moved on to Java. I've also picked up some x86 Assembly and Python over the years. I love programming and do it regularly as a hobby as well as doing some side work in computer repair (hard & soft-ware). I love not only programming but also building and fixing computers and have accumulated quite a collection of them over the years.
I'm currently a physics student at a leading university here in the US. I've taken a few Computer Science classes over the past couple years - which were very informative from a theory perspective - but I enjoy solving programming problems from my own practical approach to the subject.
My favorite area in the computer and programming field centers on security. I enjoy hacking (though not illegal hacking) as well as the area of cryptography. I hope that one day I may find myself working for a computer security firm doing things such as penetration testing and security auditing.
I hope that I can help many people here on the forum and that on the occaisions when I find myself stuck with a Java task, that others can do the same for myself.
I hope to meet and help a lot of you and hope you guys can help me as well!
