Turning the Page in a Developer’s Life

I’ve decided I really need to move away from Java programming (which I am now, in my opinion, thoroughly learned enough in at this point) and move into C/C++ programming. I’ve started with a little OSS Linux project meant to compete with RPG Maker XP. It’s going to be an interesting dive: I’ll be submerged into music, tileset-based graphics, and other such things all at once.

Will I survive? Time will tell!
