Thread: Programming buddy
- 01-03-2008, 05:46 AM #1
Alright i know this will probably sound lame. I'm looking for someone to be my "java programming buddy." Like, we exchange AIM screen names, and, whenever we are free, we work on various programming projects (including games). My reason for wanting this is that I want to work with someone, to be more productive, and to learn from someone with more experience. My friends who are in my AP Comp Science class do not really care about programming, so i can't work with any friends, not to mention the fact that i'm years ahead of them in knowledge. And, the class, is ridiculously slow. They're learning about for loops now. I know Java better than my teacher does lol. So anyway:
I'm pretty sure that theres gotta be someone out there who loves programming and needs someone to work with. So yeah, if you're interested, please let me know. Thanks!

I have a project that you might be interested with.
I am a phd student working on robotics. In addition to my thesis studies, i am developing a Java-based robotics simulator (actually a simulator, a simulator gui, a framework to run experiments on grids) and i plan to transform it to the first robotic IDE with the help of Netbeans platform (may support Eclipse in the future too).
The simulator will be open source. It is a new project but the base code is already shaped and have a working version. The GUI part currently support point-mass simulation of the robots with a 2D view but i would love to and plan to have a physics-based implementation with a 3D view. Here 2D, 3D views and physics based models of robots are related to gaming. I dont have much free time to work on an independent game other than my simulators although i think that that area is interesting too.
The GUI also has a console and with the help of JSR223, it is possible to access/modify simulation objects at runtime. In the future, i plan robot behaviors to be programmed in any language too.. ;) There will be XML support which will be used to read robot placements, initial speeds etc. (in this way, the users will not need recompile their codes to run it with different configurations.).
We have developed (and still developing) robots designed for swarm robotics specifically. My main research requires me to work with them at this stage and the first robot being supported by the simulator will be these robots.
Our lab also has a good simulator, written in C++, specifically for physics-based models with 3D view. But i love Java and i believe Java will open new doors in this area..
The project will be open source. You might be interested in improving the simulator to support 3D and physics-based models. But of course, this might not be the type of interaction you are looking for. I understand that if it is so. Let me know if you are interested to help/work with me to improve it. If you reply to this thread, i can contact you with PM with further details.

Let's get some beans roasted .. I have some time as well. Get it hosted to semi open or open system like java.net we can work on it together ..dont worry newbie, we got you covered.

For the project already mentioned above... SourceForge anyone?
By the way, i already have java-robotics.org domain. It is a good idea to host the web page of the project there. I plan to install a wiki there. A wiki which can be edited by only authorized authors (developers). In this way, we can have a better documentation.
If java.net is ok, i can add an email list for the new project there and we can start discussing. I also have a friend (Silvere). We worked on jrobotics project together.

wow i am very happy to hear from all of you guys. I am a student in an AP Computer Science A class (although i've learned everything necessary for the second year of the course =]). But, I am no where near as intelligent in programming as you guys are, but if you're willing to have a person of less experience working with you, then that would be great, because i think i can learn alot from you guys, and i would enjoy it very much. If you teach me a thing here and there, i will be set because i am a very fast learner. Also, don't hate me, but i don't know anything about like java.net and SourceForge or anything like that (i'm looking this stuff up now), and i'm assuming that they are sites that allow people to work on code together. So, i am completely willing to work with you guys if you can be a little patient with me. CaptainMorgan, (or anyone else), if you would like to IM me on AIM my screen name is DarkSideOTM91 ... for anyone that wants to work with someone i'm available every day (i have no life hehe). And finally, JavaBean, i would appreciate the PM with the details =]

I am interested in working with you guys. I fed up working on same old projects which save and retrive data.

JavaBean, care to share where you are doing your Ph.D. studies?
Gibson, added. :) Btw, don't feel that you're not knowledgeable even if you are beginning your CS studies.. everyone has something to give and gain from our community. ;)

haha well yea i mean i am way ahead in my studies.. my class is starting to learn loops, when i've covered 2 years of work, and still going strong. But, in my game, i'm using .gif files as my images, by using the drawImage method of the Graphics class. My friend, who is really good at making graphics, is gonna make all of the graphics for me, and i'm gonna code the game.

Sorry for delay replying. I will send PM to the users who are interested with jrobotics project.
