This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/learnprogramming

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • MonoGame

    One framework for creating powerful cross-platform games.

    If you want to be closer to the code, then maybe a lightweight framework like Monogame will be good. You get to code the game in C#.

  • three.js

    JavaScript 3D Library.

    Another thing I recommend is to learn how to make games with ThreeJS (3D) or PixiJs (2D) and build web-based games using javascript. If you want a full-fledged web game engine, then you can take a look at Playcanvas. Playcanvas is similar to unity but for web-based games. If you want to learn all about Three Js then this course will help you a lot.
