After years of half-started projects, in 2017 I decided that I was going to code and complete a computer game. I made this decision right around the birth of my first child, but with her constant need to nap on someone, she was very amenable.
I did a lot of the programming with my daughter sleeping on my chest, sometimes at The Carrot. What I love about coding and game development is that I can do it anywhere I can take my laptop. Going out into local coffee shops is a nice break from my home office: it's important to have comfortable and open drop-in places like coffee shops to get my kind of work done.
I have since completed the game, a simple space shooter, and I am now working on my next one.
