I love recursion as much as Google loves recursion. Try Googling "recursion".

The compiler would give you hell for this.

recursion is one of the most "feel good" concepts of programming. When you get it going, its so beautiful.

Hi guys, Im a student programmer myself and have some questions

What kind of skills make the difference between an average common programmer and a good video game programmer ?

From various forums about programming and video game industry, I've heard (and read) that the programmers have the most stressful job. The designers and graphists make their job and it's programmer's job to assemble this two parts, but if there are problems and the development lags, the pressure fall on the programmers, because they are the last chain link before the deadline's release. Is that true from you own experience ?

Ps : sry for bad english my questions may sound confusing ^^

As for SCM, the specific tools and processes used again varies by team.

Thanks for the response(s) it is really helpful and inspiring; good job to the OP for creating this thread and thanks for all the Rioters contributing!

Why's that? I didn't compile it, so I may have forgotten something silly. :P
