Pax West 2016 Interview Round Up

pax-west-2016-gamesThis year’s Pax West was definitely an exciting one! The ability to get not only one-on-one time with developers but actual hands-on time with each and every title in development is what sets Pax West apart from all other gaming conventions.

Minecraft: programming for modders!

Minecraft Add-ons - E3 2016Whenever I walk into a hands-off meeting during E3, I never know what to expect. Especially when running late and having completely missed the overall introduction to the meeting. When I walked into an E3 demo with the Mojang developers, I was excited to see an opened text editor. This meant that we might be diving into some code and that honestly made me really happy!

Daniela’s CES 2016 wrap up!

CES logoCES kicks off every new year with the promise of new innovations and upgrades to existing consumer hardware. This year seemed to be the year for the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as the year to get your kids into programming. iLuv showed us how you can easily make a morning better with just a few connected products while the folks working on the upcoming title Moving Hazard show us that the zombie apocalypse can be tons of fun. Bartesian showed us how easy it can be to create quality drinks at home and, of course, Razer, SteelSeries, and MadCatz gave us a sneak peek at their gaming hardware.

But growing up, I didn’t even know that was possible until I was first introduced to programming in high school. It was during that time that I realized it was something I was great at and loved doing.

Useful Links: Angular Style Guide

Angular.js logoIt’s always overwhelming when you learn a new language or framework. Whenever you try something out on your own, you’re always wondering if you are following some sort of standard. I have seen visual style guides become the norm when trying to enforce standards on the HTML side of things, but recently I came across John Papa’s Angular Style Guide:

If you are looking for an opinionated style guide for syntax, conventions, and structuring Angular applications, then step right in. These styles are based on my development experience with Angular, presentations, Pluralsight training courses and working in teams.

The purpose of this style guide is to provide guidance on building Angular applications by showing the conventions I use and, more importantly, why I choose them.
