Hooray to Java!
This semester, I learned a lot about Object-oriented programming and used Java as our language. I really enjoyed learning this language because it has a lot of possibilities: games, software and other programs. However, I still have to master this language. There's so many methods and classes, and many programming techniques to learn!
Currently, I'm doing my Machine Problem, which is to program a game called Sungka.
Sungka is a Philippine mancala game which is today also played wherever Philippine migrants are living; e.g. in Taiwan, Germany, and the USA. Like the closely related congkak it is traditionally a women's game. Sungka was first described outside of Asia in 1894 by the American ethnologist Stewart Culin.
Sungka is similar to many other Southern Asian mancala games such as naranj (Maldives), dakon (Java), congkak (Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia) and tchonka (Marianas). The game differs from kalah which is known in North America and Europe in being a multi-lap game. Another important difference is that the first move is executed simultaneously in sungka which is meant to balance the game. Sungka is distinguished from congkak by being played counterclockwise and also by some other minor rule differences.
Right now, I'm still in the GUI making process. Hope to finish it soon!
