Programmers lurking?
I'm curious to know whether anyone who wanders here does any programming!

I've not done much myself - I was a web-oriented guy years ago but mostly lost interest - but now I'm trying to get into Java with the outlook of developing Android apps, eventually.

What language(s) do you code in? Working on any personal projects? Feel free to share what you're working on!

RE: Programmers lurking?
I mostly just mess around with Bash, and sometimes Perl. I love web design, but that's not technically programming.

RE: Programmers lurking?
Bash, python, some C++ and Java


I went to school for it and everything...


But I haven't messed with it in years, besides automating basic tasks on my computer with bash.

I'm gonna need to learn C++. I'm wanting to get into low level emulation development so that I can better understand how emulators work and improve upon them.

I'm taking a course in Java, all I really know right now is basics and a bit of GUI programming. Another thing I code (if you can call it coding) is tf2 huds, and that's made me kinda want to get into web design/app design

RE: Programmers lurking?
I'm mainly programming in Java and C++. Personal projects? I started a book library program (think calibre) but that didn't get very far, like most other personal projects. Heh. It's difficult to stay focused on personal projects. You get bored or find something more interesting all the time.

RE: Programmers lurking?
Whatever has a good IDE, C# is nice for this, I'd recommend it.

I don't program too much, still in the learning phase (which is to say, not focused at all on any specific project or work).

I have wanted to make a game though and made some leaps with unity, but with the lack of art assets, I don't bother doing anything.
 I actually spent a good chunk of time trying to 3d model, but then realized it would take 3+ years to get competent, heh...

With all the rage about HTML5 these days, the two may be closer than you think (web and app development that is).
A number of tools exist to, in fact, turn a web app into a "native" app.

If you're looking to understand how emulators work, you're better off starting with system/hardware design (i.e. CPU/GPU architectures etc).  Emulators ultimately are software implementations of the hardware (modern console emulators less so, due to low level emulation being very slow).  Whilst you could try to interpret emulator code to understand how the console works, it makes a lot more sense to just learn the console hardware itself directly.
If, on the other hand, you're looking to contribute, C++ knowledge is fine, but you probably won't be contributing to the core unless you understand how the console works.

RE: Programmers lurking?
That's very true, and I would love to learn about ASM and opcodes as well. I'm not particularly wanting to develop my own, but at least contribute like you said. I've always been intrigued by gaming console emulation, more so now that I have a better understanding of it. There's a scene dude from RED Crew that goes by Xylitol that managed to push 32bit code to a GBA and run it successfully, which really piqued my interest in the whole manner.

I'm aware of Cordova and I'll probably play around with it eventually but I'm more interested in working with languages used for true native development for the time being.
