The next meeting will take place next Friday at 4pm Eastern!
Yes, hello! For those of you interested in programming, this thread will serve as our base of operations. There are requirements to join this group on CL, which are as follows!
To be a part of this group and to maintain membership one must be:
- Interested in programming
- Willing to learn
- Actually willing to contribute(This can be done in many ways)
- Committed to attendance at meetings(2 initial meetings mandatory to gain membership)
Meetings will be held in chat under the channel /coding/. Here, we will show off our work on personal projects, discuss group projects, etc.. The goal of this group is to further your own coding abilities, promote teamwork, and to provide a place for us to discuss such material on The Colorless!
Currently, only the languages Java, Visual Basic, C#, and C++ are allowed to be used in this group. Discussion of other languages is fine, but when we do projects we will not be using other languages. The primary language initially we will be using is Java or Visual Basic. We will eventually ease our way into C# & C++ as members feel more confident, and when time allows.
Participating members will gain a badge eventually signifying that they are a member of this group. @Warlock is the President of the group and has the power to kick members for not following the group guidelines, and for being disruptive to the cause. Those who do not show up at meetings for extended periods of time are subject to being kicked from the group, and their badges removed.
We will be using the program TortoiseSVN to collaborate on approved projects in the future and using an svn account at assembla.com(I suggest every member register there). However, I will discuss this more with members at a later date once I see how well members are grasping things.
Activities will begin for this group on May 2nd. Please mark your calendars! If you are interested, feel free to post saying that you'll be joining us at our first meeting!
