Welcome to my blog!
I am a software engineer/web developer/game developer in sunny and lovely Canterbury, Kent, UK.
I will post my latest projects and occasional products of hackathons here.

So recently I was kindly sponsored by my company to attend PyCon UK in Coventry.
I had a very interesting event with listening to lectures about many facets of programming industries being powered by Python applications and microservices.

Part of the event involves programming sprints organised for the monday, allowing people to raise support for projects and causes ,and get a lot of progress done there and then

I proposed a sprint for developing part of my Cards Against Humanity clone, which I have wanted to make for a while. Where players can take ownership and control over a web based version of the game and host it themselves.

There was a fair amount of progress made and I was really proud of how much we got done in such a short time.

Sadly the event was cut short by an unexploded ordnance being found nearby causing the event to be evacuated!
Still despite that I am pleased with how the event went and feel like I learned a lot. :)

Did a bit more work on my Shmup in development, limiting the laser to only travel up to the next obstacle.
Going to be fixing a few more things and developing more in the coming weeks before I lay out the last level and start looking for artists and musicians.
So forgive the programmer art and open source assets until then :)

Working on my shmup still, read about the Keijiro Takahashi's awesome unity packages on GitHub and took particular interest in his KinoGlitch package.
I spent a bit of time integrating it into the latest build and like the look it can give with a bit of tweaking.
The pause screen gets a bit of activity to it now and looks juicier!
