Aha, the programming forum! So what's everyone up to? Writing some games ... scripts ... apps?
well atm I'm scripting. got a nice thing that will automagically scan my solaris servers for hard and software changes, and when detected will automatically update our configurationmanagement database with the latest info, and I'm starting on a script that will do capacity stuff for said servers and send the results to a mainframe for processing (or something like that heh).
In my attempts to learn C, I've created some pretty stupid command line app thingers that say, "Hello world!", add up some numbers, or test you on your times tables.
Master programmer at work
Currently writing a dynamic site for my college JCR (what would, at a lesser University, be a students' union). Pretty simple stuff really, but I'm kinda rusty.
An Oxford boy I see, which college?
yumm programing forum
Watch your words, he's of the Cambridge variety.
I'm afraid I'm going to have to hurt you now...
my major project for uni, which is a turn-based game library and a game (Axis And Allies)
various AI exercises for uni
old skool 2d game framework for stuff like platformers, shoot 'em ups etc.
basic open gl framework, so i can learn open gl properly
im a pascal g33k.
what im trying to write atm is:
Sub-OS for DOS (kernel only, by saying Sub-OS i mean a program, after which is launched, take over dos... like Cygwin (linux emu for dos))
Database for the OS (which holds all system settings)
Programs for the OS (which will use the same database type)
Some nice graphics for the OS
And maybe a turnbased game for it...
get your sub-os to support Java and you can have the games
ok, i you dont like pascal just say Delphi
I spent my formative years programming pascal (and modula-2). It's a nice language.
C's better but I always found pascal easy. Dunno why.
I write games, woot
BTW all you pascal heathens, go learn C or C++, live in the now damnit!
Spent 20 years writing COBOL. Now I'm doing C, C++, Java etc.
Ah yes, C++. The wonders of "take a variable, get its pointer and add 12".
Why would you do that?
You wouldn't - my point is that C can be very nasty, low-level and hackish.
Thankfully, in C++, you can also be high-level and object-oriented. I'm just not hugely keen on the munginess of (say) pointers.
C++ is heavily based on pointers though, at least as much so as C, if not more.
Windows (2K) frontends to SQL Server backends, for work... all very dull, but .NET at least makes the programming a pleasure.
One day, I'll get started on all those projects I want to do at home. One day. :[
Ive been programming for a few years now, mainly C,C++,C# and Java. Currently im doing my final year honours project, which is an autonomous control and vision system for a Mars Rover Robot. Done a bit of openGL before too, but I don't think I would have the patience to do game programming
Currently using 4th Dimension (no, nobody else has heard of it either) for a tiny software house in Stockport.
Nice and easy though.
i heard of 4th dimension, i even got a version of its compiler and IDE around somewhere, i never used it though i am a c++ man at the moment for any of my programing needs.
Got any jobs going? I'm kinda desperate for a programming job.
Slowly moving away from programming, but still do a bit of C++ at the moment, mainly for low level control of mailing systems (yes it makes me yawn too).
At the moment I'm doing fuck all, dont have any major projects at work what with my job terminating soon. Hopefully get the chance to go and do some hobby stuff like the good old days soon though. Maybe resurrect Neville (PHP CMS) or something along those lines. It's nice to do nothing for now tho, yay \o/
go neville! from what i remember, it was pretty darn funky.
