Got a Dev Blog? Automatically Syndicate to the GameDev.net Community

Do you have a personal or company blog that you like to update? Are you looking for an easy way to reach a wider developer audience? Maybe you're copying your posts to your GameDev.net Blog?

Good news. We know a lot of developers like to have their own blog space, but we also know that the GameDev.net Blogs are growing in the community. Well, now we have a simple, automatic way to get your blog to the developer audience here on GameDev.net.

Our blog system has a way for you to setup an automatic RSS feed import, which means you can continue to post on your personal or company blog and the posts will be syndicated to GameDev.net automatically. This means your posts will show up on GameDev.net without you having to copy and paste them in yourself. It works very well with Wordpress blogs, but as long as your RSS feed carries formatting your content should show up exactly as on your blog.

To set it up you just need to create a blog through your account, or use your existing blog. If you don't have a blog already on GameDev.net, go to the Blogs link in the menu (or https://www.gamedev.net/blogs), and below the Featured blogs is a link to "Create a New Blog" (or https://www.gamedev.net/blogs/create/).

Then, go to your blog and in the Manage Blog menu below your blog's header image, click the Atom/RSS Import link.

Add the link to your RSS feed (http://www.yoursite.com/feed for most Wordpress blogs), click Save, and the blog will be imported.

From that point forward, as long as the RSS feed link doesn't change your blog posts will automatically be syndicated to GameDev.net. Just don't forget to login and check for comments and upvotes!

      Hello guys!
      This is the first game of our studio and we just released it on Play Store. Lighty Ghost is a little game where you need to touch the walls while avoiding to touch the spikes. The longer you stay alive, the bigger your score is. The little detail is the "green lights" multiplicators that encourage you to take risks in order to have bigger score. We already planned to launch on iOS when our account will be validated and to integrate a leaderboard (certainly based on facebook accounts) to compare with your friends in a version 2.
      We need advices to make the "green lights" multiplicators more understandable in the game. A lot of people think for the moment it is poison. Moreover, when you take a multiplicator, the next one will multiply by 2 again until you reach x16 which is the maximum. We tried to make it understand by adding the bubbles on top of our character and make the tail bigger each time. Do you have advices on that?
      Same for the gems, it is to buy characters. An idea to improve the understanding of this part?
      Thanks guys!

      In episode #2, Jeremy adds some formatting by covering the news, reflecting on the inspiration for PixelFest, and delving into an important developer lesson; that period of time everyone faces when they have to decide whether to play a game or make a game with their time.

      In this episode of Madsen's Musings, I discuss what to call yourself when first getting started as an audio professional.

      A transcript is provided below the video.
      Okay, so this is a really quick mini-vlog, but I watched an interview with CLA today - Chris Lord-Alge.  It was a really good interview for the most part, I enjoyed it: lots of really good quotes and tidbits of information in there, but here's one thing I did not enjoy - or one thing where I perhaps understand what CLA is saying but I don't totally buy into or agree to it, and that is the notion of... he was basically ranting about the fact that people call themselves mixing engineers, and he felt like he had to earn that.  
      He used the analogy of the military saying "you're not a General, you're a Private", you're just starting out, don't call yourself a mixing engineer, and I get the fact that he's talking about back in the day the way it worked is you had to work up different things: you're an assistant, you had to do this type of prep, and then you shut up, and you stood back, and you let the professionals do certain things that they were doing whether they are the engineer or the producer, or they're the mixing/mastering engineer, whatever it is - they had a very structured path or progression you went up through and you didn't just say "I'm a mixing engineer".
      So I get what he's saying, and to a degree I agree with it, but I also feel like there's a danger to saying you have to reach a certain threshold before you can say you're X, Y, or Z.  A perfect analogy is I play saxophone - I have two degrees in it, so can I say that I'm a saxophonist if I don't play at the same level as a Jeff Coffin, a Bob Reynolds, you know, a Joshua Redmond, a Branford Marsalis?  I don't play on the same level as those guys, so does that make me not a saxophonist?  I think it makes me a saxophonist in work in progress.  A saxophonist working towards something.  
      So I don't ever want to have that mentality of you're not a composer if you have not reached X or Y.  Maybe CLA, Chris Lord-Alge is trying to get at is if you haven't gone through and mastered all these other elements and you're just saying you're a mixer, then yeah, maybe pare back a little bit, but I also see that we're all works in progress, and I hope we're all continually advancing and growing, and learning and getting better.
      So that's just a little short tidbit, I hope it's helpful and encouraging.  Go out there, learn your stuff, always be a lifetime student, but at the same time don't be scared to say that you are X, Y and Z.  I don't know, I mean, that doesn't make sense.  I personally offer mixing as one of my services, but I also don't claim to be at the same level as a Chris Lord-Alge, or any of those people.  I'm still intermediate - and it shows in my price point too - it shows on my credit list, so I don't know - I'm kind of rambling, but that's something to think about.

      I am really annoyed at how slow GitLab became in my last project, looking for something more scalable for the next one. Using LFS is not an option unfortunately. Does anyone have any recommendations for working with large repos on other tools (Bitbucket, CodeCommit, ...)?
