The last couple of years
« on: September 09, 2018, 07:33:22 AM »
I got married, finished college, got a full time software engineering job, then got an even better one.
I'm working for Indeed, my work involves rapidly prototyping new software feature and product ideas and testing them for success in the market.

In the past 2 years, I've done a lot of hobby software work. Web development, games, custom server software.
One of the big things is that I made many contributions to LeagueSandbox. I made a developer lobby client, wrote a CSharpScriptingEngine, made an auto-setup developer environment tool and more. This is actually the place where I can most easily be contacted. Here's the discord if you want to join me. You can also friend me on discord with my name being Gan#1113.

Here's my website:

Some of the things you will notice on the website is custom forum software, an art platformer game and how fast the website is. I like to use no dependencies when I build stuff.

This is what has been happening in the past couple of years. I'm not as active here as I was in the past. The GMG, SilverCreator, Al's GameMaker made this all possible. My success is all because of you guys.

I love you guys. Memories of the GMG are some of my favorite. Memories of everything we accomplished and did together. All the cool stuff everyone was coming up with all the time. It was an amazing many years.

I've gone to community college, dropped out and worked in a job saving money for about 2 years, quit that job and am now back in college! This year I should be able to complete my 2 year degree and then (probably) won't continue on to the 4 year degree, but I'd like to have one even if it's in Liberal Arts. I'd like to get a job in programming, but I'm seriously considering going all in on my game. Crowdfunding, or maybe finding a publisher.

I have continued to make slow, sporadic progress on "SlimeGame". Current working title is now "Jelly Ball" by the way. :D It's looking pretty good. There's a demo video around here somewhere...

Been playing Rust again recently. It's a chaotic game which is fun if you have friends to log in with, otherwise it's just scary and frustrating. Friend me on Discord so I can bug you when you when I need a teammate lul Connorses#0986

Gan: Sounds like you are doing really well. Congratulations on getting married.

Connors: I never finished my Associates degree either that I started years ago. Oh well  ::)
