It's been a while since we had an update. I'll try to make these more of a monthly thing from now on since that seems to be a reasonable cadence.
The reputation recalculation previously mentioned has not happened yet. No good reason other than it's been a lower priority.
If you haven't noticed, we have a regular column we're calling GameDev Unboxed with Jesse "Chime" Collins writing about various topics relevant to game developers and the industry. Check out his latest and let him know what you think.
We're looking to bring back contests / game jams in general to GameDev.net and were recently considering a throwback to the Four Elements contest series. Any feedback or opinions on GameDev.net contests?
Recently there has been an increasing interest in bringing back the Developer Showcase. This was a feature we had when we launched the site but was removed a few years ago. The good news - we're working on bringing this back. A beta version will be available to GDNet+ members and select developers in the near future. Of course, if you have opinions on this then now is your chance to influence the development in the comments below.
Austin Game Conference
I'll be manning the GameDev.net booth at the Austin Game Conference so if you're there make sure you stop by to say hi.
C++ Builder and RAD Studio
If you're a C++ programmer and want to support GameDev.net, please consider checking out C++ Builder from Embarcadero and signing up for their free 30-day trial. C++ Builder is great for simplifying cross platform development and worth checking out. Click here to learn more.
Embarcadero also has RAD Studio, which could also be of interest: click here to learn more.
