Hi Everybody! Here's a little bit about me

Posted 02 July 2009 - 11:19 AM

First off, I would like to say thanks to the founders for allowing open membership to this great resource of a website. I have come across many posts on the forums which have helped me solve programming issues when I was starting to learn C++.

A little about me:
I am an advanced beginner when it comes to programming, and advanced in graphics design with the Adobe family and GIMP. Although, I am a beginner with Flash. I am great with OS's and Office suites as I have a B.S. in Business Administration with majors in Management and Information Systems (MGIS) and Information Systems Management (ISMG). I am half way through a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering program. I am very familiar with *nix and Mac OS, all variants of Windows back to 3.1 & NT 4.

The languages that I am familiar with or learning:
I am most proficient in C++, and I know the fundamentals of C, and I am learning Visual C++ and how to use the MFC libs. I am also learning Qt, and I am working on a C++ Qt4 app for the management of Type 1 Juvenile on-set Diabetes. I have written Pseudocode, designed the UI, and created v1.0.0a which lacks some of the robust features I am implementing. So now I'm working on the class libraries to do the heavy lifting. After v0.5.0 is finished I will be starting a blog, and working with beta testers.

I am beginner at Java, Javascript, PHP and CSS.
I am a little better with Unix shell scripting, source code patching, and HTML tagging.

Thanks all for listening, I'll be around, asking questions and answering what I can!

Cheers,
JB Dynamics

Welcome to Dream.In.Code

Thanks for joining Dream.In.Code, hope to see you around the forums someday :)

You have just stepped into the greatest programming community on the Internet, we have experts for just about every mainstream language, and even some languages that aren't so mainstream, so the level of expertise is second to none. All will be more than willing to help, as long as you too are willing to put forth the effort to solve your problem, and to go along the road to becoming a better programmer smile.gif

I would like to ask that when making a programming question that you first place your code inside code tags like this :code: . This makes it much easier to read through large pieces of code, and keeps your post a little more organized.

When posting a programming question first make sure you're in the first forum, then make sure you provide as much information as you can think of that would make it easier for a 2nd pair of eyes to help you debug your issue.

If you happen to get bored (I know, it's real hard to do here) you can check out our Off Topic Caafeine Lounge, the Corner Cubical, dedicated to industry talk, or the Student Campus, dedicated to all things for students.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact myself or another staff member, and we will be more then happy to answer any questions you might have.

Hello and welcome to DreamInCode, the best programming community on the web! You can PM someone to ask them or look at the pinned posts at the top of every forum for questions. To advance in rank (represented by badges under your avatar) post snippets and tutorials until you are recognized. If you want the DIC ++ badge though, you have three options:
-Buy a monthly subscription
-Go to the Caffeine Lounge>Free DIC ++ and follow the instructions
-Go to the Introduce Yourself area and become a DIC greeter
However, a paid subscription isn't required by any means. DreamInCode is a free area of the net, it just costs money to run. That's all.
Once again, welcome to DreamInCode! :):)
