Annoyed with Unity? My experience making a Game in React Native
Last year, I got that itch to make a game again, and this time I was determined to ship! Like clockwork, once a year I re-download both Unity and Unreal Engine. These tools are solid but by the time I onboard I lose focus. This time, I knew what I was going to make, and I wasn't going to let the technology choices distract me. I chose React Native as my game engine.
How I Get Value Out of Automated Testing
I've seen a ton of post's lately on Twitter, hackernews, etc. All effectively saying "yolo more". Yea that's cool and all, but honestly I actually find true yolo to be much slower and low leverage than just having a decent test harness. Before I start - I'm not advocating for TDD nor am I advocating for really trivial/low value unit tests.
