OpenTK users

I have couple of questions, answer if you dare :)

1* How old, programmer guru, are you?
2* Are you using OpenTK hobbyist or work, both?
3* Do you use opentk branch when you cant find specific method at trunk/ ?
4* Do you (if working with opentk) coding on free time after work, with opetk?

1* 29
2* only hobbyist
3* trunk, no need to go to branches (im thinking that winforms based gamewindow)
4* I program whenever i want (sometimes over 12h/day) and everyday. (unless im too drunk)

(i had couple of better questions but i forgot them)

Yeah this is so offtopic and stupid questions but if you dare to answer, :)

  3. I rely on branches occasionaly, but only to test whether some new feature is stable before moving it to trunk
  4. Depending on other priorities (and whether there is some deadline approaching), I may program for anything between 0 - 12 hours a day. The problem with long coding sessions is that you tend to get stumped on stupid bugs ('Why is my lighting all wrong?' Two hours later: 'ah, yes, I forgot to multiply with the modelview matrix.') Better take a long break and come back later.

yeah... very offtopic but not so stupid; it's an interesting way to know each others, I think ;-)

well, my answers:
1. I'm 36 years old and I'm programming for Windows since 15 years (more or less); now I use .Net (VB/C#/Asp.Net) and I have a good knowledge of PowerBuilder and SQL languages oriented: My OpenGL knowledge is really really basic since I've started to study it in a couple of months.
2. Just for hobby; but I have a couple of ideas for a future business...
3. OpenTK it's my window on OpenGL; .Net Framework it's my daily developing field, so it is needful for me to use OpenGL
4. For work, I write code for 9/10 hours a day; I study OpenGL/OpenTK just 4/5 hours a week - or until I'm acceptably mental glossy :-)

That's me :-)

3. Fiddler wants me to test branches in Ubuntu sometimes, that's my only contact with anything but the main OpenTK.zip (I'm a lazy guy). OpenTK so far has been 90% GLControl under WinForms, using Visual Studio 2005/2008. Ubuntu/mono is really mostly for running the end product for me.
4. Work: 8hrs weekdays. At home: depends on inspiration (and how much domestic things there are to take care of. Often my programming urge beats any "have-to-do's", which is kinda hard on the relation to my wife but she's used to it by now ;)

Fiddler:
"The problem with long coding sessions is that you tend to get stumped on stupid bugs ('Why is my lighting all wrong?' Two hours later: 'ah, yes, I forgot to multiply with the modelview matrix.') Better take a long break and come back later."

Yeah, its good when always remembering that, I sometimes hours and more trying find bug and no success. Next day, it splash in my eyes, there it is, and
development continues.

Thanks answering (and more to come, i hope)

My little story:

Im just metal guy, (nc milling (edit: routing I mean, i cant find good english word with that what i mean :) ) programmer by job) but my hobby is programming since salora manager -> basic.
then parents buy pc (8088), then gwbasic and then pascal.
286, borland C (+asm), 386, djgpp (+at&t asm), someday to windows (dont even remember, then i was so dos programmer that windows programming
feels stupid..when i realise it's ok) :)
sdl long time and then OO-language, THE Java and then later C# and (quess what) .... opentk :) and now im trying learn axiom (C# and that I dont
change, I like that, better than java.. hmm D? no, i dont even investigate)

Seems that my whole life is programming, but it's ok :)

3. Avoid branches unless you are curious. They are minefields and for a good reason separated from trunk ;)
4. Depends how you define "coding", does it include reading/design/planning aswell or is it only hands-on-keyboard? Currently I'd measure the first in hours/day the later in hours/week.

1) 37, I am a professional programmer by day.
2) Hobby, I fumble around 3d graphics land at night. Assuming, I can still muster the mental energy.
3) I have a slightly tweaked version of OpenTK that I keep aligned with the published versions.
4) Yes, I spend a considerable amount of my useful free time programming.

1) 19, Computer Science student.
2) Hobby, whenever I can find some time to play with 3D.
3) I use the stable releases in Visual Studio 2008.
4) I always program in my free time, though I'm using OpenTK for a CG school project now. :)
