Any Programmers?

2282 Views 110 Replies 24 Participants Last post by  Morel
Just wondering if there is any experienced programmers on KTT who could give some advice/tips regarding programming.

Software Engineering is a post secondary field I'm strongly considering and want to start programming.

So any advice? Like, what languages to start with? Best tutorials/books?

I was thinking of starting with C++, Java, Python maybe? Is that not a good idea, too advanced to start with or what? I know languages aren't just a two week book think and your done, your always learning them, gaining more knowledge. I would just like to know where the best place to start for someone like me with 0 programming experience at this point. Anything would be appreciated..

also I think it would be cool to develop some Apps (ioS) /Flash/Indie Games, so any tips on that would be welcome!

Probably won't get any replies but o well!

Oh and if someone knows of a great programming forum/website that would be more helpful to me than KTT, feel free to share :)

Ok I have a while to learn it because I'm going to community college cause i fucked around too much so that means i have another like 2 years before I go into like my real college. Is flash games hard like games on new grounds and stuff.

Trying to make any games is hard, you need to master many concepts and programming in general to make games.
Start by learning basic programming before jumping into the gaming side of things.
^this tbh. you need to be able to program well before specifically programming a game.

I want to learn to program, develop some Apps (ioS), Flash/Indie Games. I'm getting a Mac this summer. What language should I learn first? Also do programmers make good money ?
C++, then go to Java and Objective C/C# as the guys above me already said. First master those, cause games are harder to make than you think.

There's a huge opportunity now in the technological field and therefore programmers get some good money. Although it depends on a couple of factors ofcourse.

I used to go on this site called BYOND

"is a free software suite for creating and playing online games." "BYOND provides users with a set of tools for creating online games with its pre-built network structure, GUI, sprite animator, map editor, code editor, dedicated server tools, game hub listing, scoreboards, achievements, and cross-game account support."

I guess it's like a made up language and idk I could like code all day and not be bored. Idk if that count as experiance, but i like creating things and customizing stuff. Idk if its similar to real programming but heres an example

The horizontal rule is a self-closing tag.

It works either way, doesn't it?

Yes, but using it like

</hr> is considered bad style due to the nature of self-closing tags.

I spent the entire day doing HTML homework
Is it hard to land job in this field? Does a programmer make good money? And you when you become a programmer, you join a team right? With like the artists and shit like that, for how much money the game makes do you separate it with everyone ?
