I have a Telecomunications Engineering degree but since I learnt the first language (Pascal), almost I haven't stopped developing software. Mainly with C and C++ but I have touched many other languages and scripts. I use also to develop for fun (reinventing the wheel, of course!), currently almost all of such programs and tools are written in java (visit www.elxala.de).

I am currently a Software Engineering freshman at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.

Programming has been a learning experience for me since I was 8, when a Romanian Cobra (ZX Spectrum clone) running ROM BASIC was the closest thing to a computer I had.

I'm now mostly a Win32 programmer, but aside from being passionate about Linux, I've been known to write some POSIX code, too.

The best way I can describe myself is as a dream chaser. In the beginning of my career, being in the marketing department of a big telecom company, which hardly added any values to my curiosity, I was hell-bent to jump into the software because that was the only way to know about the nitty-gritty of the hardcore technical aspects. Hence I started with learning C++/VC++. But in the beginning it was really difficult without much idea about programming. Moreover, there was no google. I took a little more time to pick up. There was no training. Absolutely no help from anybody. No broadband internet. No computer at home. It was really difficult for me. But I did not stop dreaming. I used to dream and tell my colleagues that C++ is not as much about programming as about designing. It is more about a technique for moving from the problem domain to the solution domain. However, I hardly got any supports from the organizations where I worked. It was only when I got a PC at home, I started walking towards my goal. The early morning rise, innumerable visits to technical book stores in Bangalore, googling and traversing from one link to another in search for technical and C++ contents, becoming tired after the office hours, all were part of it. But still the road was difficult. I was not able to join the dots. And then when I started going through the Design Pattern book, the actual joy of learning began. Still I remember how I used to go through the MFC source code to map different GoF patterns in Doc-View architecture, the command-routing architecture and so forth. However, I was not much aware of the Open Source communities. Then when Google made their Android framework open, it was a boon for me. I picked up many unknown areas and started looking into code from a designer’s perspective. When i started understanding the Android framework code, I thought I was really able to join the dots.The dots between the dream and the reality to become an able software engineer…..

Programming fascinates me. I have been coding since my 8th standard. I first started coding BASIC on a CASIO PB-110 (1 KB RAM) machine. Soon I moved up to a PC XT and started with DBASE and other boring stuff.

The real fun started when I got my hands on VB4. At the same time I was fooling around with VC++. That’s when I got into Windows development. I think the best book I’ve ever read on Windows programming (for beginner) is the one written by Peter Norton on VB4 programming. It has a few chapters on VC++ too.

Quite a few years have passed since my game programming days of college and I kind of miss the ‘programming for fun’ life I had during school/college. I guess, working for these big companies is really a drag, has little to do with technology and too much to do with management, anyway, life goes on. I am now almost totally into VC++/MFC/COM and also C#.

The stuff I love are: C++/VC++, COM/ATL, PHP, MySQL, .NET/C#, playing guitar, age of empires, Jedi Knight and watching all the episodes of StarWars and ofcouse my wife without whom all of this would be worthless.

May the force be with you.

Toxcct is an electronics guy who felt in love with programming at the age of 10 when he discovered C to play with Texas-Instruments calculators.

Few years later, he discovered "The C++ Language" from Bjarne Stroustrup ; a true transformation in his life.

Now, toxcct is experiencing the Web by developing Siebel CRM Applications for a living. He also respects very much the Web Standards (YES, a HTML/CSS code MUST validate !), and plays around with HTML/CSS/Javascript/Ajax/PHP and such.

_____

After four years of services as a Codeproject MVP, toxcct is now taking some distance as he doesn't like how things are going on the forums. he particularly doesn't accept how some totally ignorant people got the MVP Reward by only being arrogant and insulting while replying on the technical forums.
