What C# can do for you?

I often spend a lot of time talking to new software development graduates at Xero about the benefits of the mighty language C# and despite my absolute enthusiasm and excitement for this brilliant language which has delivered us such treasures such as LINQ, I often find the standard response “But Dominic we use Java at Uni and it’s really cool”.  While this is not a great response, I have to accept that most Universities (In Australia) teach mostly either Java or Python.

So I was really lucky to come across this little gem of an article on C-sharpcorner that not just talks about the benefits of C# but also has a little history lesson on C#:

Dates for the 2019 7DRL

So a reminder that one of the great game jams is on this year and as ususal it’s a great time of year to see if you can hack out a simple game in  7 days.

It’s always a challenge to try to get this done in a busy work week with other responsibilities but it’s also a really cool opportunity to get feedback on a game.

7DRL over for another year – SUCCESS

Yes despite my pain I finished. Basic overview:

  • Pirate Roguelike (You are actually a pirate hunter)
  • HTML5, Canvas, JQuery and Javascript
  • Hosted on Itch

Also all games for 7DRL 2018: https://itch.io/jam/7drl-challenge-2018

I’ll do a short overview of the development process after I have recovered. Still in recovery after a very long week.
