I'm in town for it (meeting with people outside of GDC) but I don't actually have a pass to get in :(


In Topic: Can you projects be stolen on GitHub?

In reality, no one cares enough about your code to steal it. Chances are good no one will even see your code on GitHub unless you're out there promoting it or sending it to employers. 


In Topic: Titanfall beta access

Well, it was fun while it lasted it. I enjoyed it, although I'm not sure if the full game will hold my interest for that long.

 

I'm interested in seeing what else it includes. Apparently there are whole game elements that were not exposed in the beta.


In Topic: What's in a language that makes you like it

a drawback of C, C++, Java, and C#, is the general absence of implementations providing the ability to compile them dynamically at runtime.

I suspect this is likely one of the major motivators for the use of both a compiled language and a scripting language in the same project.

 

there is some difficulty though (in a language design and implementation sense) in trying to make a language that works equally well as both an implementation language and a scripting language.

 

 

See Roslyn which enables things like ScriptCS.

Braces lead to mismatch bugs though... if/endif while/endwhile case/endcase would probably have been a better design choice.

 

Only if your tools suck. For some reason I just can't abide by endif. Maybe it's my irrational hate of VB which spreads to other languages with similar constructs.
