Presentation

Since there is no dedicated section, I believe it is the most appropriate place to present myself.
My name is Anthony, I am an "Aspiring Developer" in both Buzztouch (amazing job BT Gang btw!) and in other languages, including C++ and Bash.
I live in Hong Kong, and have just turned 16. I know that minors are often shown as 'script kiddies' and wannabe programmers, and this image is sometimes hard to fight off for the minors who really try. Now you might be wondering why I am telling you the story of my life, it is quite simple: I am willing to spend alot of my time helping Buzztouch. This includes writing tutorials on Buzztouch U if you need someone to write (somehow I believe that will not happen overnight), or just reporting bugs, or even just being a beta tester. I am impatient to hear about all of you very soon! In the meantime, I bid you fairwell !

@Antoinesg: Welcome aboard! Your offer to help is genuinely appreciated, your posts are already helping folks, awesome!

You're well written, well spoken, and can't possibly be 16, right? Geez, makes our American education look really really bad. Funny.

Tip: Don't give up on the C++. As a new developer, it's tempting to look past the classic languages (such as C) and move directly into more modern approaches, such as Objective C or Java. However, if you can find the time and the dedication to learn C++ you'll be FAR BETTER OFF than 99% of all "mobile" developers. You may not realize how yet, and it's tough to explain...just know that it's very worth it to study older, established, and far more efficient languages like C++ than it is to cut-corners and start making things without understanding as much as you could about what's happening behind the scenes (compilers, etc.)

Glad to have ya' and look forward to seeing your avatar around.

I am not sure if Skyros intention was for others to present themselves as well, BUT I'M HI JACKING THIS THREAD ANYWAY. I just signed up for BT because I want to learn to develop for mobile. I have played around with jailbreaking in it's early stages, then I went to Android. I have been taking advantage of XDA developers community and it's fruition. Aside rom that, I do not know dick about development. I am pushing 30 years old now and have been a computer nerd since 14. I have somehow managed to neglect delving into software development and regretfully so. I am hoping to make up for it by stepping into the smartphone era. I have nothing to contribute yet and only a basic understanding of roms, kernels, recoveries, and so on. It seems to me that BT leans a little toward the Apple side of things. I am okay with that as I would like to be equally educated on both platforms, (and who knows, maybe windows mobile someday). I just hope I can get a fair amount of Android support here. Can't wait to start learning. Thanks!
