A long time ago I used Dave Bollinger‘s Pixel Spaceships (yay Wayback Machine!) idea a lot for game sprites. Dave’s site has sadly disappeared from the internet, but I spent a few days re-writing my old Pixel Ship generator code in… Clojure 🙂
I’ve spent a fair amount of time recently testing out some new (for me) languages. Clojure, Scala, and Go. It’s very refreshing teaching my brain to think in new ways. I allowed myself to get in a bit of a rut, and I lost some of my passion for programming in the process. It’s nice to find it again.
