Yeah, I guess I just want to do something productive with my time. The tutorial will be put up on the wiki for everyone to use, so I'd like to pick the subject that most people want to know/learn about. That's why I asking everyone!

I made it a multiple choice question so you can pick more than one.

A lot of programs and such now-a-days use a lot of Java, and you're obviously skilled in that, if I'm making the correct assumptions about the IRC that is.

And I would love to know a little about Java.

Or, better yet, write a tutorial on "How to be a Furry"...

To answer your last question first... Same as being a modder: just call yourself one. |8

And as for Java... I think it's a very useful language especially because it is easy for beginners to learn. I do not however consider it a good language for serious game development, because when it comes to the real fine-tuning Java lacks a lot (pointers, or even direct access to the CPU). A virtualised environment like Java uses can never be as fast as the actual hardware, that's just a fact.

C++ or Java would both be interesting, and something I'd take a look at.

Seeing as I have an OK Java background, I'd like to see a C++ tutorial especially with a "migration from Java" section. Applying it to game development would be interesting too.

I rewrote part of the tutorial that was already there, and added some new information. It should be a lot easier to read now, and have a better flow in the text. I've also added a tentative table of contents to the front page. This may still change.
