Hey all! My sophomore year of college is drawing to a close, and I've realized by now that the majority of my programming knowledge has come from personal study, not my classes. When next year rolls around I'll take it upon myself to have personal visits with my professors and ask for comments/critiques. This term is fast drawing to a close however, and I'm looking for something to occupy my summer. Gotta keep those programming abilities sharp! What I'd really like is to meet new people and have a fun time programming! If there are any programmers here who are interested, no matter your ability, I'd love to learn with and from you. I've posted a similar thread on INTJ Forum, so hopefully there are some people over there who are interested as well. Here are the projects I'm tentatively working on this summer: (though I'm open to different projects if you have something else in mind)The first is helping one of my friends with a MineCraft mod once the source comes out. That would be in Java. So far there's three of us on that one - me, my friend, and his CS friend.The second project which I've just started work on is a game in JRuby. I'm using Java libraries, but I want to learn some of Ruby's excellent testing frameworks. Plus Ruby's syntax is really nice. The game is slated to be somewhat RTS-style, and I have a few non-programmer friends who are very dedicated to developing it alongside me. I was planning on writing tools for them to use, so they can help without needing to learn to program.The third project, which I've always thought about but never got around to implementing, would be an Oregon Trail clone set in the Lord of the Rings universe. I want to call it "The Erebor Trail" and have it be about Bilbo's journey to Erebor, the lonely mountain. I have one CS acquaintance who's interested in helping me with that, if I ever get around to starting it. I'm not sure about licensing issues, though...Again, I'm open to suggestions, as well. Man, I'm so excited. This summer is gonna be awesome!
