climate, webdev, rant, looking for something else 

I hate my web developer job. No time for unit testing, no time for documentation, no time for creativity or nice algorithms.
Just use whatever trendy JS {front,back}end framework, ship high bandwidth, heavy, soulless sites in no time.
The mere consciousness of it from my colleagues are jokes between two crypto bs talks. The climate catastrophes ahead are literally a joke to them.
I hate that I contribute to this and I want out.

Does anyone here have experience going from this kind of job to a more engineering-focused, ethical one? Tips? Interesting reads? I'd love to hear about it!

Boosts are appreciated!

I did a strange thing: I built export binaries for the Raspberry Pi 4 (Raspberry Pi OS, Buster), based on the "20211210" development pre-release of the 4.0 version of the Godot engine. Why? I guess I was bored.

Programming blog update: Async texture import in Unity engine. matiaslavik.codeberg.page/unit

A more efficient alternative to ImageConversion.LoadImage, using FreeImage for async import.

"[T]here is the distinct possibility that cooler heads will prevail and won’t throw themselves into a technology mostly known for being a scam, but we shall see. But putting current users on notice that the company might not see value in the play style of a majority of their customers seems like a bad sign all the same." tagn.wordpress.com/2022/01/03/

I'm wondering about doing live /#Shader/#TechArt sessions "once in a while". These would happen around 9PM CET. Would you be interested in attending these?

To create perfect software, write no code. If you must write code, perfection is forever beyond reach.

Anagramarama is available for purchase on itch.io. It is still open source and available for free on the website (linked on the itch.io page). Just figured I'd dabble in ways to fund open source game development.

A special holiday message and thank you from some amazing VR devs, and also me.

@AngryAnt True. It's not a "forever" bug, though, it's "new" with .net core.

That's part of why I spent so much time tracking it down - it doesn't reproduce on mono nor on .net 4.x.

TFW you spend three days debugging what turns out to be a 5-year-old regression in the .net type system
