Welcome to my new website. This is actually my sixth website counting all redo's and redesigns. The big upgrade here is that everything you see here is run off of a new content management system I wrote using ASP.NET Core. I used SQLite for development and it made things so easy that I continue to stick with it. The last piece of the technology puzzle here is that I stick everything in a Docker container and deploy it via AWS.
Technologies like Entity Framework and Asp.net MVC have been open source for some time now, so although the open sourcing of the .net compiler wasn't a complete shock, it has opened up a world of new possibilities. The first thought that probably popped into people's heads was running web sites and services on cheap Linux boxes, and that is right around the corner, but what I figured I'd take a look at is developing and debugging .net applications on my Mac.
I created another game for this winter's Ludum Dare game jam. I spent the vast majority of the allotted time crafting my own physics from scratch, so it's not super heavy on content, but I AM happy with the way the game plays. I was thinking this could be a good opportunity to hammer out my first "post competition" version of a game jam game - with sound, music, more tracks and maybe even AI opponents. We'll see! Play it here
