Awesome. Let us know a bit about your game, and keep us posted!


In Topic: why does it take so long to get a response to a question asked

30 November 2015 - 07:20 AM

Because, like myself, many others have stopped coming here on a daily basis.  Since the transfer of power, it simply hasn't been the same.

 

For quite a while, this place was a wonderful place for programmers to help others.  It was moderated well, and it was a pleasure to help other programmers in need.

 

Instead of just hand feeding people they answers, we would give many hints on what was wrong, where to look in the code, etc.  This made them better programmers, 

 

But then came the incessant spam, followed by belligerent people that just wanted the answer and had no interest in figuring things out themselves, and learning a really useful skill...DEBUGGING.

 

 

I have taken all but 2 of my blog postings off this site, and left the 2 that pertained to the belligerent people that joined en mass.

It is truly unfortunate.  This place was once a great place to talk and teach programming.

 

True what he said.

 

I used to visit CC on a regular basis and was at one point spending the majority of my time on here. Unfortunately, though, all good things must come to an end. CC is like a Apocalypse now, where the only visitors seem to either be starving for knowledge or peering at what it once was and now, the remains of a great community, destroyed and digested by it's own mother - The Internet.

 

Meh, whatever, things change I guess.


In Topic: What's working at a startup like?

07 January 2015 - 02:42 AM

I worked at one during the dot com boom, and it was fantastic.  It was a "hipster" mentality, and we had a full kitchen and game room.  The stipulation was that we couldn't play if it affected our work, so at around 10 am and 2 pm, we would all do our application builds (on the server) at the same time.  It would bring the server to its knees.  We'd play foosball for almost an hour and a half while the builds were taking place.

 

This sounds like my day job, only it's not a start-up and a fairly established company. Can't say I'm not grateful!
