Can't believe it's been like 2 months since I started already and 1.5 months since I started the spaceballs project. 2 more months left until the last day to apply for the game programming school.

Just applied for 15 other university programs as back up in case I do not get accepted to that school.
(not sure if I'm translating all of these correctly)

1. Computer science, 3 years on campus.
This one I'd be happy with as second choice. would have to travel 130km to get to school which would be a bit annoying but doable

2.
IT security and softwaretesting, 3 years on campus.
Not as excited about this one as I think it has a bit less to do with what I'd like to do for a job afterwards (programming) but it lists programmer as one of the possible jobs after graduation and some of the courses looks interesting. Also the school is nearby

3
Applied system science, 3 years on campus.
Campus is nearby which is good

4
Computer game development, 3 years on campus.
This one would probably be fun but would have to travel something like 250km to get to school :p

5
Computer science, 3 years on campus
Same deal here, campus is 250km away

6
Software engineering, 3 years distance based.
This one looks pretty interesting, it's distance based though so doing the whole thing online from home will probably a challenge.

7
Applied system science, 3 years distance based

8
applied system science, 3 years on campus 165km away

9
applied system science, 3 years on campus 170km away

10
developing and managing software systems, 3 years distance based

11
Web programmer, 2 years distance based.
Bit less interested in html, javascript etc but would be better than nothing.

12
developing e-services
actually not excited at all about this one so might delete it

13
Web programming, 2 years distance based

14
mathematician, 3 years on campus 165km away
threw this one in there as a curve ball :P

15
data and applied system science, 3 years on campus 250km away



Would've liked to apply for more computer science but I don't really have the grades needed for most of them.
If I take another 5 week math course I'd be eligible to apply for one more of them. For the other ones I'd also need a couple physics courses and a chemistry course.
Not sure if I'll have the energy for another math course just to slightly increase the chances of me getting accepted to a program that would be my second choice

Wow time flies man! Looks like you got a lot of plan B's. Computer science and computer engineering are good majors.

How is T23 going? Easy breezy? I'm finishing up the editing on the SFML setup mini-tutorial, that should be popping in a day or so, so get caught up on those beginner tutorials!

Yeah since there are just something like 9 programmer per year getting accepted to the school I can't put all my eggs in that basket :)

Took the day completely off yesterday and did some other stuff. Gonna rewatch the tutorials today and hopefully get started with coding :)

Gotta take some days off :)

Holy shit, that is pretty low numbers. I wonder what the # of applicants is each year.

I think it's pretty high. The school is just one class which they seem to put a lot of resources into. Sounds so awesome.
The students get a personal workstation with an awesome computer, there's a motion capture studio, there's a gaming room if you wanna take a break which has all consoles from retro to modern etc :D

The classes seem to consist out of
8-10 programming students
20-24 artists
8-10 designers

on average

Yeah, reinstalls are a bitch. Just did me one of those a little while back and I'm still running into software that needs installing.

Haha, well I'm going to be putting out a video fairly soon that goes over an easy / powerful installation workflow for VS2017.
