Weeell, I mostly meant good at programming. I remember I met a project leader for software, she just made sure that the project goes successfully, none of that techie stuff. But I would like to be a good leader/programmer. Where I would be like a senior programmer. I'd write programs and clear everyone else's. Like a senior editor for newspapers.
I'm getting boggled up by what you guys have said, I'm going to reread this thread several times and jot down what I should do next!
"That's the question you need to ask. Why didn't he learning anything, and how might you experience be similar or different."
I shunned that question, but mainly because I wasn't talking derectly to him, but one of his siblings. I'll add that to me list
"Does your school or school district offer the Computer Science A and AB Advanced Placement exams (or classes)?"
I really really really like that question, I'll ask my computer teacher when school starts! 11 more days. This goes to my list too
"What is the speciality of programming you want to pursue?"
I've been thinking strongly on web design & windows programming. I LOVE windows programming, mainly because I was in C#, and it was so easy to put things on the form. Then I went to Java, that was a little more complex with the layout managers, but still pretty cool. Then I went to C++, and it was so cool because it was so hard! I still haven't even added a button yet and I still love it. I love web design because I love PHP & mySQL. Please note I am not that experienced lol. But I have a notes website that I keep to myself that I use that goes reeaaally fast with phpmyadmin. This also goes on my list
I really like Blizzard's website, especially the map, where you get to move your mouse over the world in "World of WarCraft", that is so cool. It took me hours to get my own going, but it was definitely worth it, and it was cool.
So I'd say C++, C#, PHP, Java, anything. Though I'm not truly that experienced at any of them. 1-10 I'd say 3 lol.
"What industry do you want to work in?" Any is fine. Finance, gaming, 3D, photography, all is good. And I'll add this to my list as well
"good luck to you." -HaoZhe XU
Good luck to you too
I'm going to think about this thread more...
