Topics I've Started

My programming students were on TV today!

25 November 2013 - 08:23 PM

Check this out.. my programming students were on a local news TV channel today for a game that celebrates a school rivalry.   What was cool as a high school project was that they were forced out of necessity to create a networked version of the game that syncs game state back and forth between clients over a LAN.   The whole thing was our attempt to promote computer science as a subject at the high school and it seems to have attracted some local media attention (3 newspapers and a local TV station)   For me, I'm just trying to get more kids to sign up for programming classes.

Indie Games Section - In Progress

18 August 2013 - 10:15 PM

I want to keep this low key and share something I'm working on for those who haven't stumbled on it:

 

This is a screenshot from Danny Green (who already is an accomplished indie developer):

What's new is that our own members will be able to post projects and what's really cool is that we can start to promote more of our own member projects in the screenshot showdown.   If they get IOTD it gives a shot for them to get a bit more exposure for their project.

 

Here's the really new thing (still in development).. this is his project entry so far:

It all stems from a new section called the Indie Corner here:

OH.. and we're also starting to build up an Indie resource library thanks to Stormynature, Cornstalks, and Alpha_ProgDes..
