I've been playing Minecraft (officially) since October 7, 2013. Before this date, I had been playing Minecraft using offline mode accounts (some people might know of my first username, alzeller1). I eventually switched to using my friend's Minecraft account (Ulricthekiller) before eventually getting my own copy of the game, as a birthday present (although, it was purchased a day before my birthday). It's been amazing that I've owned this game for five years. I originally played on (mostly) creative servers before making a creative server of my own. I also uncovered the "minigame" aspect of Minecraft around this time, by discovering Mineplex. I made my own minigames by learning Java and the Bukkit API around January, 2014.
Java and I
I have since went on to learn more about Java's Swing library, allowing me to make custom programs with a general Java UI. It has been officially 4 years since I've started learning Java, and I have only gotten better. I am now familiar with concurrent, asynchronous programming by implementing thread-safe operations and methods in a sensible manner that allows for full program functionality without sacrificing stability. The near 5 years of experience with Spigot has also benefited my knowledge of Minecraft's inner workings, and I am now also somewhat familiar with NMS (net.minecraft.server).
I started on Mineplex in mid- to late-2013, playing Draw My Thing and Survival Games. I applied for Trainee on November 7, 2018; and was accepted on December 1, 2018--starting a day later.
