Hello World

Why hello there, person currently reading my blog!  This, if you had not yet noticed, is the first post out of hopefully many others to come.

Let’s talk about what these hypothetical future posts will contain for a second.  My main interests include programming, game design, the study of history, and to a much much more limited extent, art.  So, you can expect a lot of posts to be about what I’m currently learning and trying out in programming.  You can also expect some to be about what game pet project I’m working on, at which times this will mirror an indie dev blog.  Some posts may just be me remarking on history that I’m reading, or wondering aloud about the study of history in a meta sense.  And some may be me posting illustrations and trying to make progress in that area; eventually I’d like to migrate to digital art, but at the moment I’m content with sketching basic anatomy.  Baby steps, and all that.  And most importantly, somewhere in all of this I might actually do or say interesting things.

So, if any of that sounds up your alley, stick around!

I’m not yet sure what the schedule will be as far as updates go; for now I’m just going to post everything whenever I want and we’ll see what sticks.  Alright, let’s do this thing.

  1. Hello there!

    Can I ask how you have learned to code? I’m trying to find all the best resources for self-learners who are into coding and was just wondering if you might have any of the online resources, like Codecademy, Programr, P2PU etc.

    Looking forward to read more of your posts in the future!

    1. Hey, thanks for stopping by!

      Actually, the majority of my education so far has been formal, ie through high school and college. While I’ve always tried to read extra material and code things on the side when I can, it wasn’t until very recently that self-learning was my only resource. As such, I hadn’t even thought to check out online resources outside of github/forums or books! Some of the sites you listed look interesting though, and I plan to check them out. Sorry I can’t be more helpful, but if I see something interesting I’ll throw it your way.

  2. Thank you for your reply, it was definitely helpful! If you find any interesting online resources and especially if you have used them it would really be great if you could let us know 🙂

    If you want to take a closer look at the available online resources I’ve found so far, I’ve done Storify stories about what people have been saying and writing about the different online resources (http://storify.com/Eskills4Future). I’m hoping that people this way wouldn’t have to search through the whole web just to get some info (like I do) 😉
