I just finished the last first-week-of-school I will ever have!! I'm so excited to graduate at the end of this semester!!!!
But I know there is so much work ahead of me... I'm going to be learning four (yes, four!) programming languages this semester.
1. ActionScript 3.0. This is listed first because it's the one I'm most excited about. I'm taking a class in it, and I'm also making a really awesome game with two of my friends/classmates. The story idea is fantastic thanks to Kelsey, and I know that Erin and I can come up with some really great art. Erin's an art major, I'm so lucky to be friends with her
I'm in charge of the programming, since that's what I'm going to be doing after I graduate. And the other two know next to nothing about coding
2. PHP. So far this seems like it will be soooooo useful in my future career. I'm really enjoying the assignments that my professor has given us, I'm already a week and a half ahead since I've done all the assignments up until that point.
3. SQL/ PL/SQL. I've learned SQL in the past, but we're going to be doing a lot more advanced stuff with it. Can't wait to get down to business
4. Ruby on Rails. I just had my first RoR class tonight, and it was fantastic. There are actually two professors who are teaching the class together, but they are actually professionals who use RoR on a daily basis, so they KNOW what they're talking about. I feel so privileged to get to study with them, for real. In the first three hours of class today, they told us about so many cutting edge technologies that we will be USING in class, that the "normal" professors I have never talk about. I'm so excited. Add that to the fact that I found out last semester that I am in love with Ruby, and you've got a hella promising semester coming up!
I will probably upload some of the character designs I do for the game. And eventually, I'm sure I will upload the final version of the game! But that's several months away
