My Blog

I wanted to make my blog, not as a blog of my life and actions (though there may be some of that in here) but about Programming, specifically a blend of Html PHP C# and XNA (also c#)

This first blog post i wanted to be about me, for two reasons:
  • 1. I'm not really really good at expressing my thoughts (of any kind) in any form. Such as over the internet, its not that i don't want to, I just don't generally know how to express my thoughts into an understandable form.
  • 2. I thought it would be nice to start off with a little intro about myself.

I wanted to tell any one that reads this that i may ramble about meaningless things from time to time, I do that a lot. Just ask my friends :P

I love to program, in general, i have a few specific projects im currently working on, My main project is my Minecraft Classic server (StormCom), and the secondary project is a Map Editor for WFTO (War for the Overworld ~name subject to change)

But i thought that I might be able to do more good to the community in general if i shared my knowledge of programming, and the concepts behind the different languages. Don't get me wrong, I dont claim to be an expert, and there are a great number of things that i haven't even begun to understand. But i do think that i'm a decent programmer.

I can't learn very easily from tutorials that other people write, I don't know if it's just me or what, but i find that I have to learn things on my own, through trial and error, usually. And i think its because the tutorials that are out there assume that you already know the basics, like how to load an object, or create a list. When it could be your first time ever touching code. Often enough I get frustrated and stop trying to learn a specific topic if no one has gone back to the basics and attempted to explain every detail of what they did in a way that i could understand. Thats what im going to try and do in this Blog, assuming that i can keep up the motivation to continue posting here.

I also dislike tutorials that take up 10 minutes of your time to explain to you WHAT something like C# is, when all you REALLY want to know is how to make some sweet ass form for a program, or draw some 2d sprites in XNA, If you want to know who made C# or when or why, your in the wrong place, thats not why im here.

Without further ado, Ill call this post quits, and maybe start writing up the basic tutorial for C#, a simple Hello world program that we will work into a simple form application, and from there, perhaps a file-editor, or simple chat program, who knows, certainly not me, at least, not yet.

If someone reading these blogs would like to specify a specific topic for me to explain, even if its WAY off course of what were working on at the time, then by all means, let me know, and ill see what i can do :D
