I have been thinking for some time now to create a thread based solely on the conversion of Mathematics equations to Programming code, some of these will be given a graphical drawing by myself or anyone willing to put the time together for them... the aim of this thread would be to simplify the conversion for both beginners in coding and coders in general as sometimes it is nigh impossible to discern what is what and sometimes both structure and what should actually be done and in what order...
And yes the idea was to help myself mainly but I saw the use of a dedicated thread being useful for all, eventually I or anybody else could compile it all into a PDF every so often, say: by years sorted into subject matter i.e. Code for Networking, code for Physics, code for Graphics and so on... I don't mind compiling it as we go along and at the end of the year publish a downloadable PDF in an organised linked index presentable format which can then be used in schools either digitally or printed out... just some thoughts and also contributors would have their desired references included; this could be the thread post on the forum link or their twitter handle or their email, entirely optional [though I think the thread post would be a good default].
Also I would manage the top post to link to contribution entries on the thread in subject matter grouping... so it would help if a format was used to post a contribution... kind of like being an academic paper only, more fun! something like:
[SUBJECT MATTER] [CATEGORY]
Example: Character Controller, PHYSICS
[MATH EQUATION, TEXT OR IMAGE]
Possibly ideal if an image that embeds into the forum but high resolution and clear so it can be printed, I may recreate all images to have a set format for visual representation
[EXPLANATION OF WHAT IT ACHIEVES]
Example: Creates a character controller which allows control of a player character in your game and includes collision detection and height adjustment for crouching
[CODE VERSION WITH COMMENTS]
Preferably in C#, optional to include other variants such as VB on top of C#
[SAMPLE IMPLEMENTATION / HOW TO IMPLEMENT INTO PROJECT CODE]
[CONTRIBUTION MENTION PREFERENCE]
Example: Contributed by: Vaseem Valentine | Tweet: @VaseemValentine | Web: vaseemvalentine.com | Forum Thread Post here
This would also be a great way to spread the message of MonoGame too! double, NO; triple, NO; Infinite! BONUS! [Yes MonoGame makes me feel young inside!]
Also Users can post code they wish to be converted and someone can help convert it as above
My note on the idea:
Maths code thread idea for networking/physics and general equations converting maths equations to code...
The Math Guild [Thread Title]
The thread title can be debated here maybe... before it goes up, though I would like to launch it...
So, what say thee? should I go ahead and make it happen?
Also @Tom any chance you could look into my forum err privileges; I am unable to edit my thread titles...
Side Note: I just realised I can drag the comment box up [divider].......
