if you do this in an easy to understand concept
i will begin the flor-mula religion
[spoilers:29e9n51r](ps florian formula)[/spoilers:29e9n51r]
If made, I will show no public support.
(Though will make immense contributions for.... a particular side.... <.<)
But yeah... hopefully thats what happens.
Right now I'm as much a noob as you can be, except with strategies on learning besides reading (See other peoples source codes, Copy and paste, seek the help of those that are open to suggestions)
I feel lucky that florian is thinking about doing this.
Though Its going to have to be figured out how to make sure florain has to do minimal work,
-perhaps make the Jnr Dev a Community that has a tutorial on figuring out coding so that the work can be done by an excited group of noobs instead of putting all the work on a single Programmer
When I say figuring out.... I mean instead of Forcing a person to go through hello world and all the bull. You have a person....
-know what they are looking for (lets say a 2d physics engine)
-Look it up on the internet for tutorials/source code (Look
--If looking at source code; understand what you need (Velocity, gravity x/y, hit detection, bounce, momentum, dealing with curves and slants)
--If looking up tutorals; Make it able to be cut and pasted while including comments to ease customization
-And Finally, a way to intergrate it with everything else (This would probably be the only true Language by Language tutorial since you don't use #include with Java and the way subclasses work for each one, etc, etc, etc)
I'd also Question making a "Weekly Vocabulary List" Class, so each person can understand the universal requirements for all programming languages (Which actually kinda helps sinc
-And then Show the Language specific Equality of a specific definition
--Hittest in Java = Hittest in C++ = Hittest in Flash
---They all just use different words
In all though....
I really don't want to rely on Florian...
Not because He isn't a Superstar "A"numberOne Champion
If everyone depended on Florian, Development would be as fast as Florian's Super Powers go (What about Florians Vacation?, or other projects, or general life)
-Thus Development could potentially very Slow indeed...
