Hello everyone. My name is Shivam and I am a student at the moment. I am fairly young (not even in eight grade), but I have been doing math and science far beyond my level. I am pretty skilled in programming as well. I plan on studying single-variable calculus soon. I hope to increase my knowledge a lot here and to help out many people - as long as the questions are matching with the knowledge I have attained so far.

Hi Shivamcoder3013;

Welcome to the forum!

Hi Shivamcoder3013,

Welcome to the forum!

Character is who you are when no one is looking.

Hello;

Thanks for the additional information. Shivam is masculine so you are a guy. I am seeing a lot of young people lately. That is good.

Those quizzes can be weird. What I meant was the name is a guys name? Is that true? Here we say masculine for the men and feminine for the women.

Hi Shivam, and Welcome.

For more coding fun I suggest you also learn Actionscript (makes Flash files). You don't need to buy Flash, you can use something like FlashDevelop to edit and compile your code.

@mathisfun: thanks a lot. I can't afford Flash, so that was keeping me from learning Flash/AS. I never found a good free editor either. Thanks.

You are welcome.

It can take some effort to get it all working, but worthwhile.

Pick a simple project, and then expand it.
