are people doing an #introduction thing?
I'm Spencer, I'm a game dev, I do Unity stuff, I'm working at Monomi Park on Slime Rancher 2. I do a lot of programming stuff in my free time because I have no life outside of working. I'm also trans/nonbinary.
Got into a discussion with someone on Twitter about what makes a programming language "good for beginners". They seemed to want to talk about syntax and stuff. My questions are:
- how hard is it to install
- how easily can you import useful data and output results in a useful format
- how likely is a beginner to know someone who can help them solve problems they run into
- how many resources (tutorials, example code) are out there
- can you easily do all this without the command line
I have a big announcement to make: on May 24, GITCL will be going from free to $10. Thank you to everyone who’s played so far—and if you haven’t gotten it yet, now’s a great time to add it to your library! 💖
Are there any queer indie #gamedev teams out there looking for an artist?? I'm a frequenter of gamejams but I'd like to have a long-term project to be on. I also have a degree in csci so I can help code too if need be. Hit me up!!!
Honestly the same goes for all other aspects of life it's all much too difficult for no reason
I appreciate that this is a hard problem but probably "triggering the browser to go back to a different website" is never the correct behavior.
Today, May 1, is International Workers' Day! It commemorates the sentencing to death of eight anarchist workers in Chicago who were framed for throwing a bomb at police who attacked a strike demonstration in May 1886 https://shop.workingclasshistory.com/products/the-incomplete-true-authentic-and-wonderful-history-of-may-day-peter-linebaugh
