My programing experience has always been as part of a team. My role in the team dynamic was never as a core programmer; I was usually the guy that took the first-pass code and corrected things: algorithm problems, coding bugs, etc.
Now, with System Terminal, I don’t have a team to rely on. Challenging? Yes. Opportunity? Absolutely!
As you might guess, I’m terrible at starting simple. I want to do something cool. Also, I want to finish that cool thing right now. Patience is certainly not my greatest virtue. What I really need to do is slow down and build up to the large projects. So, I’m going to start at the basics and learn about the following web techs as if I’m a beginner:

I’ve always wanted to make games. This seems like the perfect opportunity to do so. I just have to scale my expectations. Instead of massive 3D graphics and realistic physics modeling, I’ll be starting with text, PNG images, and no real-time interaction (yet). Forget multiplayer for now, too.
Alright, enough ranting. Next post I will start posting about the technical stuff: HTML and CSS!
