Out of software development, game development, and web development, which do you prefer? I prefer web development, but I used to do some game programming in Flash Actionscript.

Web development, it's the only thing I'm good at.

I only know a bit of C, C++, Python and Delphi, but it's far from my PHP knowledge.

Depends on the mood I'm in.  I prefer web develoment mainly because of deployment issues.  Software development can be fun and interesting, but it's such a hassle to compile, deploy, and debug.

I've never done any game development, but I do enjoy the work produced by those who do it :)

typically just web development, but i love web game development, too, so i'd have to vote for both if i could. i definitely agree with ober's comment above, though  ;D

I did games programming for nearly twenty years. Web development is a walk in the park compared.
Sir Isaac Newton said "If I have seen farther, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants". But it is not recorded as to whether he said it before or after he was hit on the head by a falling apple.

I don't think I could do CSS all day like some people, but I can't stay glued to the Actionscript panel in Flash for hours...
so does that make me a ...............software developer ---- potentially?

But I do like making graphics too.

i actually wish i'd went onto university to continue my programming, as I leaned C++ pretty well and enjoyed it loads. back when I had an Amiga, I had a program called AMOS Professional and Blitz Basic, which were versions of BASIC aimed at game developers (Worms was conceived on AMOS, I think Skidmarks (racing game) was made on Blitz, so definitely not "BASIC for wimps" lol). Unfortunately I got a job that consumed all my time, so pretty much gave up, and by the time I got back into it I was too rusty and didn't have as much time to re-learn. Shame, cos game programming is extremely fun.

but now, i'd say web development (PHP), but only cos it's about all I know these days.

"you have to keep pissing in the wind to learn how to keep your shoes dry..."

I say old chap, that is rather amusing!

I like crazy stuff and random stuff

I work with online software development, but it is boring... I liked to make a process killer.

Once I made a simple XML parser, that was fun. (yes, I know that php haves a built-in function, I was just playing)


I´d like to work with game programming...
Programming is like building your own universe...
But let me ask you something:
Your world... It´s cool? Or it sucks?
