So, this is it. I spent a nerve-wrecking hour peeking in my inbox, and then the word arrived: "congratulations!". Thanks again to the TP mentors for the vote of confidence!
The following week I will be studying the libraries and tools relevant to my work, and have everything set up on my machine. More specifically, I intend to:
a) Finish configuring git, then make a first post to the TP repository.
b) Install the tpserver-cpp locally, and run games on it.
c) Start a project on Eclipse, using the existing classes in libtpproto-java as my starting point.
I'll keep this blog alive by posting a progress report on a weekly basis.
