Hello there! And thank you for the time you are taking to read this.
My name is Whitebird, I've been using this name since the beginning I started programming.
In the beginning it became clear I wanted dedicate my life to programming.
Now After some years of experience (mostly learning bits 'n pieces here and there) I became an experienced web developer.
And now I want to shift my abilities to game programming.
The reason for this change is ; I turned 18 last week (yaay!) and that got me thinking, How far I am with my life, what I want to do, how will I make money, ...
You know what I mean
What I want to say is: I want to devote my life to programming, starting from now on. In the past I tried and do a bit, but now I want to go for it.
This school year I start at the High school studying applied computer science (not sure if that's the correct translation).And now for the real deal
Almost half a year ago I stumbled across a curious thing called "Bitcoin", tech savvy as I was, I tried mining in Slush's pool for a month, but I got an Nvidia card, so it was really, really slow, and did not have a good income. So I quit that and Bitcoin was on the back of my mind.
But today I started thinking, I want to make games, and I love the idea of Bitcoin. (I see a connection there)
So I start a little project I call "Bitcoin for a game". (also, if you want it, it can be "Bitcoin for a program")
Basically it means you support a young student eager to learn informatics making programs; and you help (a little) financially.
By financially, I don't mean heaps of money, I mean a symbolic coin, for the effort.
So you want a program, I make it. That's it!
You contact me and we'll have a chat (no beer, sorry
This I made together with a dear friend.
I'll let you play that for half a coin. (screen coming soon)
What do you guys think about all this? Do you think I'm mad for thinking someone will support me, think this is a stupid idea?
Hate it or love it, I'd love to hear your thoughts
With kind greetings from the rainy Belgium,
