Hey, it's a girl on the Internet

Post icon  Posted 15 March 2008 - 05:30 AM

Hi.
I'm a 19-year-old girl who made the mistake of trying to be a game-designer (okay, it's not a mistake, but I kind of suck at this). I'm pretty good at all the visual stuff, but when it gets down to code, I just get a head ache. Expect to either hear from me a lot, or not at all.
Yeah.

Welcome to dream.in.code! We've got some game programmers who know their stuff pretty well and will be happy to help.

As for being a girl on the internet, you'd actually be surprised at how many girls we have here at dream.in.code roaming around. While it's definitely the minority, the minority has grown a lot as of late.

Thanks for joining, and I look forward to seeing you around the forums. I see you've already found the caffeine lounge :)

Welcome to </dream.in.code>! All I can say is, if you are interested in pursuing it, learning programming is really worth it. You'll learn a lot about how the computer works on the inside, outside, and you will be dreaming in code in no time :D.

Welcome to Dream.In.Code Ifsogirl! Well it is good to see more ladies getting interested in the world of programming and game design. I don't know why more don't do it, they get treated really nicely and even us guys here on DIC have been known to go out of our way to help the ladies.

So feel at home and ask whatever questions you have and myself, as well as the other programmers, can certainly help you out.

Welcome aboard! :)

Bwahaha... haha, oh, I'm so used to forums where people just don't give a damn about introductions; I just sort of roamed back here and saw all this lovely welcoming. Very sweet, guys, thankee big.

Jes, I saw there were quite a few femes roaming about this site- sweet hell, I was impressed. And you guys are all so fast at responding; I'll definiately be fanging around and sharing my problems.
