Episode 10 - What is a Game Loop?

Show Notes

You may not realize it but every game has something called a ‘game loop’. But just what does that mean? In this episode I try to answer just that with a couple of examples and reasons why you as a game developer should care about it.

I have been experimenting with GatsbyJS cloud hosting and dang if it’s not supper fast at builds and deploys.

Episode 8 - First Moments with NextJS on the JAMStack

Show Notes

Any time I look to start or rebuild a personal project I see it as a reason to try and learn something new. I am rebuilding my photography site from the ground up. So that gave me a good reason to look at NextJS as my static site builder and find out what all the buzz is about.

In this episode I share my thoughts on working from knowing almost nothing to having a working site using NextJS to build it.

Sometimes it’s the little things that make the difference in testing. Here’s an example, I love Canary mail so let me get that out the way first.

But this example shows that you need to really check window resizing refresh in your app before shipping. Changing tab’s fixes this, that’s how I know it’s a view refresh issue.

Oh so close, even though I doubt Cyberpunk can live up the hype it should still be a good ride.

Hello coffee my old friend. It’s good to drink with you again.

The Unity Device Simulator makes mobile layout easier.

Show notes

Unity is a great platform for developing mobile games and applications, but configuring the game window to show how it will look on a device can be a pain. Until I discovered the Device Simulator package!

Listen on for the details.

Time to shift my photography to a new host

I’m thinking of moving my photography site grfxmedia.com away from SmugMug, their service is not bad and I like it even if editing your site is still terribly 90’s style. That means it’s time to sit and crunch through a bunch of different experiments to see what works best, but I’m sure it’s cheaper that $350 a year and not getting image sales. Right now I’m tempted to move it to micro.blog and experiment with using a podcast to be able to talk about and show images as the episode art.

More to come.

More keyboards means faster typing right? Now to increase finger count by 5

For those moments things don’t go as planned, remember you actually can stick a pin in it

Fall Colors, Time to photograph again

One of the great things about the weather changing here in Texas is it gets me in the mood to grab the camera again.

Here is one that is still my personal favorite
