I started to learn Java 2 years ago at school, I now know MVC Patterns, GUI's and SQL embedded. Of course, I also know MySQL with PHP.
I really liked those courses and I started learning C++ in July 2012. I'm actually programming a 2D game in C++/SFML in my free time.
I also know what pressure is, I often participate to gamejams so, creating a game in 48h learns you how to manage stress.
I'm curious and I like to learn by myself, and to discover new things about programming languages, algorithmic or high-tech.
