Hello From a newcomer and Complete beginner(noob)

Hello everyone,
I am Adit Kumar Parida. I am a Master of Computer Science graduate student at ASU, Arizona. I am really excited to join this course. My interest for developing games comes from an addiction to games and my computer science back ground. I have worked as a software developer for 2 years after i completed my bachelors. However, I never had any experience in game development. Though I was interested, I was scared to dive in to the ocean of game development. This is my first step to really touch the surface of the vast game development career path. Hopefully I will be able to maintain my enthusiasm and I will continue to learn and translate my interest into my career choice.

I am also excited to be a part of the community.
