Join me on Wednesday for the next @IOnews@twitter.com Indie Superboost: Leveraging Colleges and Universities.
I'll chat about internship, field placement/co-op, work study, applied research, and the benefits of these resources for your studio!
I'm really surprised this sort of redundancy isn't better addressed by default? I'm sure there's some way I could configure things to mitigate, but come on...
If I say "Hey Siri" they ALL pipe up and get really excited to beat each other in a race to answer my command.
Using a new and experimental technology doesn't make your project more interesting, it usually just makes it more expensive.
What is an aspect of your #gamedev job that people often don't get? 🤔
QT with your answer! ✏️🔁
Initial plans are 1) Discord bot 2) Gitea Server 3) Local network file server. We'll see what else it can do. It's too slow to be a Unity build server, but maybe it'll be useful as a Cache server?
Safe to assume most of these votes are game developers or people who work in tech. How much do you want to bet the 2 computer peeps are 1 desktop + 1 laptop?
How many computers do you have and use regularly? Work computers count...
I respect that there are people who like working in an office, but I am primed to go off on a big rant about how the idea of "going back to the office/normal" is grossly ignorant.
Hey Mastodon friends, I'm Ryan Miller. I'm passionate about empowering small teams to do their best work, and believe that great things can be built on-time, on-budget, and without crunch. I’ve worked on dozens of games across many platforms as a programmer, artist, and manager. I've shipped indie games on consoles/PC like Fire Tonight, Mundaun, and Fossil Hunters. By day, I am Project Manager at an Applied Research lab called MRC Studio that works with Indie Game Developers. #introduction
good bye storage quotas!
and yes... this runs on windows, or macOS, or linux, or raspberry pi, etc etc etc.
Set up a home Git server this week using ✨ Gitea ✨and it's much easier than my past solution, VMWare + Ubuntu + Gitlab CE. I've got mirrors now for Gitlab repos, and the files are stored on a drive that backs up automatically with Backblaze. Not bad!!!
