Stephen Schwahn - Dogstopper
I'm currently 18 and a Sophomore by hours at Georgia Tech. I have been programming for about six years now and originally started by programming the Lego NXT for Lego Robotics in 7th grade. Then I became interested in doing more and started learning C++. Then I found Java to be used in just about everything I needed to do (cross platform development and Android).
I am a full time student, where I specialize in Computer Science theory and devices (ECE), and I work at a coop with National Instruments in Austin, TX.
Hello everyone, I go by the name of Martyr2 and I am American even though I live in Vancouver Canada. I have been programming for over 17 years and have worked as a programmer in many industries. Some of my experience includes appliance retail software, the travel industry where I was responsible for over 170+ websites world-wide and just recently transferred over to a hot tech company doing communication software. I consider this job a bit of a "think tank" because of the free reign I am given to explore programming concepts. The last few years I have focused on system/algorithm design, best practices and general programming theory.
Over the last 7 years I have helped tens of thousands of people with several thousand of them being in Java alone. I like providing working examples and giving thoughtful explanations of "why" we should do something rather than just "Because it works". I also like to spread out the answers across multiple forums here at DIC. Since I have broadened my programming language horizons I am often asked to create solutions that merge multiple technologies and create mashups.
I am constantly reading programming books everywhere I go so I am a bit of a bookworm. This often means that I can review a lot of books and provide assistance on picking great books to learn from. It also means there is little I haven't seen in the way of programming... good and bad. I hope to extend this knowledge to save you time and get you simple to understand solutions to big problems.
Hey, I go by the name of Flukeshot. I'm a 24 year old tech enthusiast from Glasgow, Scotland. I've been programming for about 6 or 7 years as a hobby - I've dabbled in C/C++, VB.NET and LUA, but when I decided to be a Java/Android developer I devoted myself to learning the language - and I still am. I'm self-taught in everything I know about programming, with the right mind-set and advice from D.I.C - you can be too.
I joined this community in November '12 when I got stuck on a beginners project in Java. I was astounded by the reception from the forum members and I do my best to replicate that reception whenever I reply to a topic. It's not just about being polite, I feel that we have a duty to raise others to our level.
