[Python, Java -intermediate-] Need buddies to code with! Statistical analysis, Mobile apps, game design, webpages, anything!
Hey everyone! First off just want to say that this subreddit is awesome as I have been looking for others to code with for a couple of months now. I'm interested in finding someone or joining a group of like-minded people who are passionate about furthering their knowledge and creating cool, exciting things.
A little about me: I am a 2013 graduate of Williams College, double majored in Astrophysics and Political Science. I have taken courses during college (primarily in java), but have also utilized a wide range of software/programming structures for scientific purposes (IDL, IRAF, UNIX-based, Matlab, Mathematica, etc). Besides that all of my knowledge has been self taught. I'm focused on statistical analysis, game design, webpage creation (front and back-end) and scientific research. I have a few applications that are currently in the development phase and would like to expand my knowledge as much as possible to see them come to fruition.
My personal goals are to expand my knowledge on the android development kit and eventually become a "master" in all things Python. Really, though, I just think it would be awesome to have more people to talk to about coding, as I feel that some of the most genuine and lasting knowledge comes from collaborative efforts.
With that being said, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions/would like to get to know me better!
Edit: Here are some courses that I'm considering in the near future. I probably won't take them all (definitely won't, depends on time and redundancy) but nonetheless have included them should anyone be interested in discussing the subject matter at length/wish to join me in their completion:
