CS 373 Spring 2021 Week 2: Remus Wong
- What did you do this past week?
The global game jam happened this weekend and I just finished. I ended up pulling an all-nighter and made a pretty cool game in Unity that had mechanics inspired by Tenet in which you can manipulate time. I was mainly focusing on the destructible pieces around the level so the environment is dynamic!
- What’s in your way?
I have a lot of different environments I need to set up so I’d like to gain some more experience with Docker to isolate my projects for different classes.
- What will you do next week?
Almost all of my classes are project-based classes so work will be starting to wind up.
- If you read it, what did you think of the makefile?
A very elegant piece of work. Gives very useful functions and information to the programmer.
- What was your experience of Docker? (this question will vary, week to week)
I’ve had experience using Docker when I was in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle club and it's a pretty nifty piece of technology.
- What was your experience of assertions? (this question will vary, week to week)
I’ll be honest in that I don’t really use them unless I am required to.
- What was your experience with unit tests? (this question will vary, week to week)
At the end of the day, creating unit tests is for your own good no matter how painful it may be at times.
- What made you happy this week?
My game was pretty cool, albeit broken, but I learned a lot in the process of making it. This is my 4th or 5th game jam so I’m starting to get some experience. You can check it out here.
- What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
I was playing around with Docker hub and it feels pretty intuitive to use. While the command line might be more clear at times, using the hub is a lot faster so you don’t have to reconnect the file paths every single time.
