I hope your March and first half of April have gone swimmingly (yes, I know this is a little late!). There are some quite exciting things stirring in the Handmade community that I'm thrilled to share with you all!
Handmade Seattle Updates
I hope you didn't forget about Handmade Seattle, the low-level programming conference being made possible by retired Handmade Network Team Lead Abner Coimbre. It was announced last month, and some more details have been announced!
It will be at the Seattle Center's Armory Lofts on Saturday November 16, 2019. It will feature two live panels (one in the morning, one in the evening), and the unveiling and exposure of many interesting low-level programming projects.
If this is something you are interested in attending, I highly recommend checking out the official conference website over at https://www.handmade-seattle.com/.
Abner Chats: Alex Austin of Sub Rosa
Abner, who formerly hosted the Handmade Dev Show, is going to be doing interviews again! He will be interviewing Alex Austin who is working on the game Sub Rosa. The interview will dive into the game Sub Rosa and also low level programming, as well as Alex's personally history as a programmer. The interview is sponsored by Handmade Seattle (the aforementioned conference that I better see you at!).
Don't miss it! Check out the details here.
As always, there is a multitude of impressive work that has been shared around the community.
Ben Visness' Article on a 3D Renderer in Desmos
Handmade Network team member and Handmade Math developer Ben Visness recently unveiled a project of his: An in-depth article on how his Desmos 3D renderer works, with intuitive, visual explanations on the math of how it all works.
Oh, did I mention that Desmos is a fricken 2D graphing calculator website? This is awesome stuff, and I highly recommend you check it out, even if you aren't into the math. The visualizations that he worked on make it very reader-friendly!
Chen's Depth-of-Field in Monter
Community member Chen recently showed of another beautiful picture of his game Monter, which is a project that is hosted here on Handmade Network.
Look pretty to you? Then you should go check out more of Monter!
rxi's Music Sequencer
Community member rxi showed off more impressive work on a handmade music sequencing program. The music made in it would be showcase-worthy alone, but rxi can also boast that the sequencer itself has been written from scratch.
That'll be it for now, folks. Talk to you soon!
