  • plf_engine

    A modern(ish) cross-platform open-source 2D game engine built on top of SDL2. C++98/03/11/14/17 compatible. Requires plf::colony and plf::stack.

    Sure, what the heck! After my last talk (CPPnow, this year) I pretty much decided that was me done for public speaking - it takes a lot out of me. But the opportunity to speak with my heroes is too good an opportunity to pass up. Maybe I could be predominantly an interviewer and Fred could be predominantly an interviewee - that would leverage my technical understanding while keeping the focus on UQM2. A conversation about code and design and music. I have only written one general-purpose game engine so I would qualify my expertise there as amateur, but I have also hacked on the later versions of UQMHD, which makes me familiar with that work - in addition my own engine was what led to the creation of plf::colony (hopefully going to be included in the C++26 standard). Also, I have no connections regards public distribution of materials, so the release/marketing of such a product (interview, or series of interviews, or whatever) would be on your terms.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.
