My name is Dima Potekhin (nick sUf) and Im thinking about joining WF. Im
18 and I live in Israel (yea, yea, where all the mess is :) for 10 years,
before that I lived in Russian where I have been born, so I know russian,
hebrew and english (not that well). I finished my high-school (it was a
special school where you learn computer science + general science) about a
month ago and now Im completely bored until I find a job.
I know C, C++, ASM, Internet stuff (ASP, PHP, etc.), some TCP/IP. Mostly I
programmed for Dos, no Windows API or MFC knowledge, no Linux experience as
well. I have some computer graphics experience and some little SQL
knowledge. All this can be learned if needed, right now I finally got the
Stroustrup book to read :). Also Im reading the Introduction to Algorithms
(the MIT book) its very cool, but big. What I really like is AI. I dont
have any experience in AI and I dont really know where should I start. Also
I like algorithms and all the com-sci stuff. Oh, yes, and I like graphics
In march Ill have to go to the army (yes I must), but the good news are
that Ill probably work for the intelligence as a programmer which is very
very cool because this will give me a _lot_ of skills, Ill have free time,
and its very easy to get a good job after I finish my service.
Well in my spare time (its (24 sleep) hours per day now :) I mostly read
book (computers and sci-fi), play the piano, do some sport, hang out with
friends and walk my dog out. I like music very much and maybe Ill join a
band, and then maybe Ill be able to do some music for the games :).
I have probably bored you death by all this stuff, anyway if there is some
stuff I can do for the project let me know, for now Ill read the mailing
list news groups and hang in IRC.
