Hello, allow me to introduce myself. My Name is Brandon Haley, I’m 17 years old and a senior in high school. I’ve been programming various things since I was 13, starting with a language called liberty basic. After that I dabbled into C++, I had no idea what I was doing and it confused me to no end so i quickly got bored of that and switched to Python.
After a year or two I returned to C++ and did everything horribly, looking back it’s amazing that any of my programs worked at all. I learned from various tutorials that were a little too advanced for me until I turned 15 and took my first programming course in high school, AP Computer Science. It taught me the bare fundamentals of programming in a new language, Java. It showed me not only how to write programs in java but how to learn new languages and I quickly took what i learned back to C++.
I made a couple games in java, simple games such as Pong and Snake, and after I felt comfortable with the basics of Game Programming I started development on my new and current project. Pew Pew Adventures, a side-scroller shooter that is just crawling out of it’s infancy. This will be a dev log for all my projects in the future. I hope you all join me for this learning experience and perhaps learn some things yourself.
