PROJECT STATUS: THIS IMAGE IS THE ONLY THING THAT APPEARS, AND IT APPEARS ONLY IN THE LEFT EYE, AND ONLY EVERY OTHER FRAME. THIS ADMITTEDLY REPRESENTS SOME DEVIATION FROM THE PRODUCT SPEC

@moshboy oh! There was a take-rocket-to-Mars sim on Atari 800 that made you decide what to bring, and weight and cost was important. You could buy cats, which were useless. But you could buy *negative* amounts! I would fill up on negative cats and float off the Earth with tons of equipment and piles of cash. I still think about all those negative cats.

I HAVE ACQUIRED A SMALL ROBOT THAT SCREAMS. I AM EXCITED

Kinda feeling like I post on Mastodon only occasionally, and my posts here are almost like condensed versions of things I've been posting about for a week on Twitter. Whatever the one most dominant thing I have to say is.

Anyway, just signing on here today to say: Wow, I do not like Android Studio. Like, I just dislike it very much.

This is my favorite line of the talk, on why one would make a language:

When we write code, we are restructuring our thoughts to fit the language of the computer.

When we design our own languages, we rewire the computer to match the structure of our thoughts.

Hey, so I gave a talk at Queerness and Games Conf this weekend on making your own programming language, and it's up on the Twitch page!

The talk went over the power dynamics of making your own language, why small-scale languages can be useful in game dev, and there's a demo of making a simple language interpreter (embedded in a JavaScript game).

You can see the slides and the code from the demo here: mcclure.github.io/qgcon-2018/

This is starting in about 15, I think it's streaming here! twitch.tv/qgcon2

This Sunday 1:15 EST at Queerness and Games Conference 2018 I'm going to be giving a talk! It will be called "Making a Programming Language is Surprisingly Easy and Fun" and I will demo creating a scripting language from scratch and adding it to show how easy it can be. There will be streaming but I'm not sure what the URL is yet. qgcon.com/qgcon-2018/talks/mak
