In Topic: Is it possible to make gaming servers of future games permanent?

11 February 2016 - 04:55 PM


If we are going to go down the track of games as art, we need to start a preservation effort now

The smithonian started this a few years ago. I wonder how it's going. I don't live in the states, so I haven't seen it, but it's a cool idea


In Topic: For Those of You Who Have Children

28 December 2015 - 03:30 PM

I have much less programming time now that I have small children.

In order to make the most of it, I plan really well in advance exactly what it is I need to do.

I never planned prioritized tasks outside of work before, but now I do so on my hobby work.

Always having an open TODO list in front of me helps me make the most out of the little "alone" time that I do have.

First feedback:

Make a trailer video. It makes it easier to understand what your game is about.

It also helps the download count on google play.

Video doesn't have to be professional, just show some gameplay.


In Topic: Concept of abstraction in programming

03 December 2015 - 04:52 PM

At the moment Scala is a very "naughty" language that tries to push the limits of the JVM. I have mixed feelings about it, but it's a real mind bender.

 

PROLOG is one of the most abstract languages I've ever used. It's quite old, but basically what you write is very loosely coupled with what actually runs. It is way more abstract than any notion of classes and pointers... Even the order of the commands (the instruction register?) is decoupled from how you write your code. Although it is not heavily used in the industry, it is very well studied in Academia. If you want to experience highly abstract code, try some  Prolog.

 

I've also heard interesting things about ERLANG. (never used it).


In Topic: HTML Spacing

Your articles are not aligned on the left side either...

It just happens that your "left" div is taller than your "right" div (the one with twitter). 

 

The problem is that you are aligning each "article" div separately. Just create a center div and put all of your "articles" in that.
