Trying a new mono font for code work

Switching Visual Studio Code and Xcode over to the JetBrains Mono font today to see how well it works for me.

I prefer mono-spaced fonts for code editing, maybe it’s OCD or it just reads better to my old eyes.

Unity GameObject following a path

I have been trying to make a game object follow a path in my Unity game I am working on and this video answered all my questions and made life so much easier, not to mention that the package is available for anyone to use.

Thank you Sebastian Lague and full credit to you.

The package on GitHub can be found here

The package on the Unity store can be found here

A great podcast episode for anyone interested in getting into game making.

Google Game Services Are Cool

It has been a very long and interesting day. I have worked through the night and well in to today working on the Leaderboard system for my CashOnTap Mobile game. for those that are interested.

Right now I only have the Android build in the release cycle, but the iOS version is well into the testing stage.

You can expect a write up once I have it all figured out and working, this knowledge of how to make it work will be interesting to many game developers I am sure.

New and old developers will get something out of this 37 tip 15 minute Podcast by Sean Allen, so much good information. Run, don’t walk your ears over to it now and listen.

iOS Developer Discussions

Well I tried something new, live streaming as I worked on code for my Web site. Not as terrifying as it first appeared, no audio on this one but if you are interested in GatsbyJS and GraphQL, you might like to watch the reply.

Having some fun with SwiftUI and sharing the knowledge

SwiftUI is something that I could tell from the announcement was going to change the nightmare that is storyboards and constraints when developing for the Apple platforms.

As my teams start to look at iOS 13 support, I felt it was time to start sharing some of the things that I’ve learned during my testing and exploration.

Today I put out a video showing how you can do a Master / Detail view using SwiftUI. This also demonstrates how to changes views using SwiftUI, and it has to be said, the code is super easy compared to UIKit.
