University: Begin!

A nice flowerbed at university last year :D Since I start my third year at university on Monday, I thought I'd make a quick post here about what you can expect to see on here in the future. If you're starting another (or your first!) year of university this year, I wish you good luck!

In the first semester, I've chosen a pair of modules about languages and their compilers and virtual reality. I thought the former sounded quite cool - I'm hoping that I'll end up understanding what goes on under the hood in the compilers that power the languages we use today. I haven't had much exposure to the latter - so I thought that it would be a good introduction to the subject to 'broaden my horizons', so to speak - that is to say I'm curious to investigate an area that I haven't touched before.

For the second semester, I've chosen a mobile development module and an advanced AI module. Personally I'm most excited about these two - The Prolog that I did (and posted about!) before was actually really rather fun and made sense in a strange sort of way, so I thought I'd try my hand at the next level. Mobile development is another area that I've been interested in experimenting with - I've been pondering writing an Android app for Pepperminty Wiki, my lightweight wiki engine that powers a personal project of mine.

With this in mind, you can expect to see a bunch of blog posts relating to these areas that I'll be exploring :D
