I first learned the basics of C by myself and a little help from friends, after that I learned C++ at school, php, MYSQL, and so on.

I'm a big fan of the KISS principle.

I don't like languages like java, C#, javascript, but am a big fan of python.

I still have to learn to do some good haskell.

I'm currently making a 3D game with Ogre3D and bullet with my free time. I intend to make a minimalist RPG where you can harvest different types of material and scraps, and learn to build new things for your survival and the worker you hire.

I'm also thinking about a level editor to make very big levels with the help of procedural generation. After using Enet as a networking library, I'll release my new MMOFPS and make millions of dollars. But I should maybe find a job first.

I'm also interested in maths and cryptography, but I don't master those subjects.

svn is a filesystem ? are you sure ? because it is kind of slow for a filesystem.

I guess one of the main point you can make is that SVN is much more efficient in a local network.

comment How do I handle refactoring that takes longer than one sprint?
Again: think and locate the easiest. Like always, coding cannot be done in haste, people should know there's currently an high demand in IT.

comment How do I handle refactoring that takes longer than one sprint?
"with lots of extensibility". Ouch. I feel bad for you. I agree that refactoring is not redesign, and it should not be. You should process step by step, thinking about refactoring pieces of code that don't involve too many others refactoring in the process. I hope you are trying to communicate with your colleagues and there's a ongoing debate with a big white board involved. My advice is to just do things wisely and slowly (not telling you to go lazy, heh). Maybe you should try to think about refactoring stuff that may involve throwing code away to redesign those part later ?

comment What does C++ do better than D?
@peaker: yes. D is pretty, but one reason I think it can't be adopted is backward compatibility with C-API stuff. I mean can D use existing C libraries ?

comment What does C++ do better than D?
whether it's D or C++, a compiled language with that much high level stuff is never going to be a pretty language. I don't think C++ has that many issues though, it's just a matter of philosophy about what a compiled language should be. Backward compatibility with C for example is irrelevant today.

comment Why do game developers prefer Windows?
Wow, great read, thanks. I don't envy people at blizzard for maintaining their 3D engine to run on all this crap. I wonder if the new ATI/AMD thing will bring new stuff. Anyway, I seems better of using 3D engines than using opengl or directx...
