    Hello all! This is a little survey thingy. I am curious, for those out there that hack, build computer stuff, code, etc.





    I, myself know a little xhtml and actionscript.

    How I got into xhtml: My mom has tons of books on web design, so I wanted to try it out. [​IMG]
    I also look at
    [​IMG](my fav [​IMG] ) and
    [​IMG]


    ActionScript: I was always drawing and this and that. In 6th grade me and my friends created our on rpg card game type thing. I wanted to learn how to make animations and games, and then my cousin got me flash. I have learned through books from barnes and nobles. I also looked things up on websites. I am using a dummies book now.

    I am still in the midst of learning, and I am looking forward to learning more!

    So now for the coders and hackers out there...

    I wish are school had coding classes. I am a big procrastinator, even on things I want to do [​IMG] , Im lucky they started a guitar class. [​IMG]

    I also really want to put my art into video games. I thought at first getting people to do program for me, then I thought screw it, If I learn it Ill be able to make the game how I want it., if you know what I mean.

    Sorry for getting technical, but when people read books to self teach, wouldn't you still be being taught by someone, because an author wrote the book. [​IMG] sorry [​IMG] lol.

    Anyway, do continue

    Dad teaches me C, taught me (X)HTML and CSS and a tiny bit of JAVASCRIPT.

    Umm... Elixirdream SORT OF taught me a little bit of AR code brewing. ShadowEO is teaching my PHP. I get help with rom hacking from Noitora sometimes. Can't remember anything else.

    Learned programming like C++, XHTML, Javascript, J2ME, raknet, opengl and etc during my 3 year course in digital entertainment technology, i would have mind if it wasnt for the fact that it was more like welcome to programming and bye.


    As for actionscript, it was necessary for my final year project so had to self-learn that myself.

    I was an old school BBS user before the internet really hit homes in the UK. Learned from various groups who dialled the same BBS as me.

    Darn, that ages me!

    I learnt the basics of HTML myself with Myspace [​IMG] then carried on to learn more HTML.
    I don't plan on learning C++ because I won't need it.

    I learnt to "hack" back in year 9 of school (they annoyed me by launching keyloggers and reporters...we had limited power too!) Had to delete 2 processes and 1 hidden process to kill their software. I now repair and build pcs as a job [​IMG]

    I still can't code [​IMG]

    I tried, but i failed everytime [​IMG]

    I started with plain basic (like most older ppl), trying to learn it myself from stuff i downloaded from BBS and hardcore magazines
    Looked alot to code on the C64/ZX Spectrum and Atari ST, Also stupid GW-Basic that was included in DOS.
    Then a friend of me who did a lot of coding with DBase and "Clipper" (Compiler for Dbase) (started with Nantucket Clipper Winter'84)
    tought me some stuff in Clipper, after 2 years learning, i moved on to my study/holiday job and didn't try/use it anymore, someone tried to learn me Delphi once, but that was a big fail [​IMG]

    I'm not good in math and diagrams, same for learning languages and especially programming languages :/

    I'm always jaloues at those who can, but hé, some ppl aren't meant to do such thing and some do [​IMG]

    I learnt C when I got my DS lite(homebrew development), it wasn't that smart to begin with C, but after a year I knew the basics. Now, I'm learning some xhtml and javascript on my school.

    Engine room, learning
    languages code (basic/c/javascript/php/other) : Reading open source codes and messing with it.
    rom hacking : internet reading and lot of tries.

    reading only doesn't help you to improve, you need to actually try to assimilate what you learned.

    I took C++ and Java courses in High School. I also took another two C++ courses and a course where I learned, html, javascript, pearl in College. Then when I needed then I learned C#, C, PHP, python and ARM/thumb on my own by reading books and other's code.
