Don't sacrifice the right ideas to win the right words
Pra criança usar cadeirinha, aí confia no bom senso dos pais e o Estado não se mete.
Pra ler gibi, aí o Estado é que tem que dizer o que deve e o que não deve ler.
Other #gamedevs keep piling features on top of their engines until the poor things start resembling Pizza the Hutt. I spent years refining mine down to a hundred lines of code apiece.
So we started shipping WebRender in Firefox a few weeks ago. Completely new rendering engine written in rust, big departure from how we approached rendering before. We are gradually enabling it for different hardware/OS configurations and a couple of million users have it now.
What's kind of blowing my mind, having worked on 3 large-ish rewrites, is that since WebRender shipped, telemetry has reported less crashes per user with WebRender than without.
This is *not* how big rewrites usually go.
First toot! 🙌

The Patreon post about how this happened:
So Amir Rajan and I shipped A Dark Room, a game we rebuilt from scratch for the Nintendo Switch. After a hectic launch day, a few hours later in a quieter moment, I found myself realizing: holy shit, I shipped a console game I wrote from scratch.
I've been doing this for 20 years, and I _know_ this is a shitty metric, but goddamn, I felt totally legit yesterday.

Unity, I love you but you *really* need to up your documentation game. It can be tragically vague in places even within the core but with all these new (often unfinished) components you’re adding it’s becoming a heck of a mess to navigate.
