Pinned toot

I'm essentially programmer.
I love functional programming and some OO Languages (OCaml, Elm, Elixir/Erlang, IO, F#).
I like painting on walls with sprays.
I love FOSS (ideally with a good UI).

- I was born in India
- I'm belgian (and I lived 22 years in Brussels)
- I live in Lille (France)
- I work in Paris (France)

You can checkout some projects, paintings and blog-posts on my webpage (in French):

Today I use a Moka Pot with Jamaican Blue Mountain. Even if most of the time I prefer Pour Ouver, French Press and Vacuum Coffee Maker. It was my my best preparation. Probably thanks to coffee!

If you understand French, and are interested in a three-hour lecture about programming and adding "juice" to games made in Unity, the stream replay is available on Youtube
And here's the base Unity project, at the before_class tag so you can follow along: arkanoid-clone-2@before_class

We start with a simple Arkanoid-style game, and use tasteful colours, screenshake, tweens, and particles to bring it to life
You'll need Unity 2019.3.3f1 and have a basic understanding of scripting to follow along
During the class, we talk a bit about structs and delegates, two programming concepts that are often overlooked, aren't too hard to understand, and come in handy for me quite often

i've put together a list of hundreds (!) of open source, experimental, and tiny tools for interactive, web, and game development

this rose out of my weird tools games class, where we have been talking about walled gardens, the politics and aesthetics that tools carry with them, the edges of “tool” and where it intersects with “game” or “playful media” and how much a tool can say about its maker

(but i also thought this resource might be particularly useful now ~)

For those speaking French (sorry), I wrote an article on unit tests of impure functions involving algebraic effects:

The article is still being reread, so there may still be some typos!

Feel free to give me feedback !

Running out of space on the spritesheet, I guess it's time to implement palettes to Nasu.
