Portfolio (Java) [reset topic]
Please Note: I'm in the process of adding things to this list. There's still plenty to be added!
I've been programming in Java for so long, I can't even remember. It's easily one of my favorite languages, and part of the reason I enjoy writing in it is because it's got a huge library of code already written for me, (hopefully) built in to every JVM out there. I've learned a lot about good software design practices reading through the Java API specification, which really isn't as bad as some people make it out to be, IMHO.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 List Server
Back in 2005~2006, I was an active member of the online community for Jazz Jackrabbit 2, a popular game for its time. The game had its own share of issues, one of which was that its master multiplayer list server daemon had bugs that malicious users had begun to abuse. I recoded the server in Java, solved many of the problems along the way, and even added new features to the new server daemon to help administrators keep the game's online experience running smoothly.Fancy Buzzwords: Java
