A detailed walkthrough on how to set up a ThreeJS project to load and render Kenney.nl 2D and 3D assets.
So I made a resolution to work on and finish a game this year. I’ve been a developer for ages and I have dozens of half-finished projects, but without setting any goals I haven’t really accomplished anything. I spent the first month of 2020 researching the tools I think I want to use and planning […]
If you’re a command-line user, you should be using SCREEN! This is how to configure and use the basic functions of this command line tool.
First things first: you need to install dotnet core on your computer. You can find the SDK download and instructions here: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/linux-package-manager/ubuntu18-04/sdk-current To allow Aptitude to install Microsoft packages, you’ll have to add the Microsoft Certificate Key. Luckily, Microsoft has provided this in a convenient package. wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/18.04/packages-microsoft-prod.deb sudo dpkg -i packages-microsoft-prod.deb Once you […]
Please see part 1 Everything I’ve read about Ansible talks about these big fancy “playbooks” but all I know how to do is run a ping from the command line to check if my servers exist. Do I have to copy an existing playbook and hope it does what I want? Yea, forget that! Let’s […]
I’ve always been hindered by my ability to deploy code using existing tools, and often times I lean too heavily on my ability as a programmer to solve this problem. As a result, I’ve written multiple deployment systems from scratch, and can’t use common tools as a result. So I’ve set out to learn Ansible, […]

There are lots of free icon sets on DeviantArt, and one I found is pretty great! http://robby-designs.deviantart.com/art/Socialcircles-Free-social-icons-circular-347921678 Unfortunately, the assets all come in separate files. This makes it easy to use right away, but if you want to […]
I spent a long time googling for an answer to this, and never really found one. I talked to my friend Noel who showed me the way his team implemented a custom error page for their Sitecore site, and I’m documenting it here. I wanted a single, shared error page that was editable inside of […]
I recently had some time to poke around outside of my normal comfort zone of open-source languages and try some new stuff from the Microsoft side of things. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it is over the fence! So the first thing I needed to do was install dotnet and a dotnet-friendly editor. […]
Ever since the release of Starbound 1.0 I’ve dove back into it. I love the procedurally generated worlds, the platformer boss fights and, of course, playing with others. Starbound comes with a Linux client AND a dedicated multiplayer server, so it’s basically a given that I would be hosting one. Now, you can run it […]
