Well, this was a learning experience.
My plan for the jam was the make an interactive plotting tool to graph data from a simulation and be able to change the parameters of the simulation from the plotting tool and see directly the results in the newly produced graph.
In the end, I was able to render a "plot" of generic data to the screen, like so.
With a little more work, I can improve the API to make it relatively easy to use for instant plotting.
I'm a bit disappointed in the number of hours I put into the project. I found it hard to make myself learn the SDL APIs. But now that I have the basics down, I feel I can get the ball rolling on the project. I also learned that hot-reloading c++ code would be a great feature for the plotting tool.
Thx Handmade Network for the jam! This jam made me learn something that would have taken me much longer to learn if I didn't have the jam to light some fire under me. Thx again.
