New Programmer/Theorist - Phoenix


#1

Hey guys!

My name is Chris and I was added as a programmer/theorist. I am a senior in high school with a focus on chemistry and biology, and hope to major in (computational) neuroscience in college. I’m also a Java programmer with minimal experience in C++, and hope to learn more through helping out here in any way I can. My biggest and latest project had me working at a hedge fund where I automated their process for retrieving loan data from a website and converted it to csv files for record keeping and modelling using Amazon’s web services. While an incredibly valuable experience, I now want to work on something I have passion for, so I decided to apply. I can’t wait to start working with you guys!

As this project is huge, I’m not quite sure where to start, so any guidance would be welcome. I’m willing to work wherever it is needed. Thanks!

Welcome Chris!

It’s always good to see another programmer on board. The best place to start is our wiki homepage (http://thrivegame.wikidot.com/). On there you can find a page called Getting Started (http://thrivegame.wikidot.com/new-member-guidance) which should guide you through the different development teams and what each one is working on. You can skip the part on Application Process of course. It’s still a work in progress so if you find a certain page has no description or is missing links just ask for help.

Have you also been added to our Slack?
