Been here a while, about time I stopped lurking.Creator: : Chief Tiger

As the title entails I've been a part of the Mobafire community for a while now (joined sometime last May) and all I've really done is made one build for Fiddlesticks and then lurked around. I always do this and hate it when I do but I finally got the time to introduce myself and would like to become a little more social in the community.
I enjoy playing most all video games, League of Legends especially. I enjoy playing normal and ranked all the same and I'm also interested in finding people to play games with, so if you want to, hit me up! I am also currently going to school to get a degree in Computer Programming. I've been programming in various languages since I was 16, and it has kept my interest even more-so than gaming has. If you have any more questions you'd like to ask me feel free to comment! :)
Ha, that wasn't just any day you joined on. 9th May.
Also, what languages have you or are you currently programming
in? And will you agree if I say Java is a poor first language? Haha.

per say. Yet what have I done,
I have copied his work.
It's probably wrong too, but lolz. Keep at it LZ, since it makes reading your posts interesting." - ShiftyCake
Well, I started in Lua, programming for a game called Garry's Mod. From there I went into multiple web design languages (HTML, PHP, CSS, JS) and then one of my college classes introduced me to Python and I loved it. I still primarily program with lua but if I sit down long enough and have access to google I can figure others out really easily. In fact, at where I work, I've made a couple programs that made everyone's lives there easier.
Regarding the java question, I wouldn't know, as I'm not very fluent with Java myself, but I recommend starting with a language that you understand the most. If you don't understand anything about the language you're trying to learn you're pretty much getting nowhere.
Its always glad to see new faces!

Hey, you should help me on acquiring Medieval Twitch!! :D
As a programmer (I have a degree in Computer science and Electrical engineering and I currently working as a system software engineer) I will admit that java bypasses a lot of low level information that can be useful to know when transitioning to c/c++ or any lower level language. On the other hand as a second or third language it can be a great tool for coding quick applications and really getting to know what you can do. Not to mention that java is everywhere and a very important language to have on your resume. As compilers are evolving and processors becoming faster/cheaper a transition to more object oriented languages is becoming possible. This doesn't mean that java will rule the world as I feel .net(c#) is a much stronger language but the knowledge of object oriented programming you gain from java is still VERY important.
Java is also much easier to pick up than c/c++/c# so it gives you the ability to get your feet wet without killing the "I can codez good" the buzz-kill that c and c++ can be for some people. Pointers are pointy and if you aren't careful you will want to put something pointy in your eyes lol.
If you felt I contributed or am just cool, can I have a +1 rep?
This and anything I say are my opinions (in no way facts), that are continually evolving as time goes on,
