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.
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!).
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!
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.
Thanks much Ryan. I should add these interviews are "sponsored" by Handmade Seattle, which is to say I hope to end the streams with something in the vein of "Uhh by the way, did you know there's a low-level programmer's conference?"
I still check HMN posts regularly -- and I have a couple I've been meaning to write. I also hear you might conduct community streams to talk to project owners! Once that happens I hope you don't mind me promoting the heck out of that :)

If Ryan is going to be interviewing project owners I call dibs on being the first one interviewed and I make the following DEMANDS: that I be allowed to use said interview time to thouroughly embarrass Ryan and detail how I taught him literally everything he knows when he was a TINY BABY ;O

I don't think I can allow my public embarrassment :)
