Because of moving back to the US in June, the site didn’t get as much attention as I wanted to give it. A lot of my time was spent on moving, getting re-settled, and starting my new job.
Fortunately, during the last month or two, life has returned to “normal” – and I’ve been able to create more lessons and videos. So, you should see much more in 2016.
Summary of 2015
- Nine new lessons for the C# RPG guide
- Six new videos, on how I set up my .NET development environment
- Parts list for my two new computers – one for my office (development only), the other for home (development and gaming)
Plans for 2016
These are the two more sets of lessons I want to make for Learn C# by Building a Simple RPG. When these are done, I probably won’t do any more lessons for this project. I want to focus on some other ideas.
- C# RPG lessons to add a vendor to a location – and buy/sell items
- C# RPG lessons to save data to a SQL database
Some other things I have planned:
- Complete the open-source C# RPG application I started a long time ago. This will include desktop (WPF) and web (ASP.NET) front-ends, along with a tool to let you easily create the locations, inventory, monsters, etc. for your game.
- Programming katas – I’ll present small programming situations, let you figure out how you would solve them, then show you how I would solve them.
- More videos of C# programming concepts, and possibly live-coding sessions on Twitch.
- Lessons for an intermediate-level C# project. I don’t know what the project would be, but I’d like to have something for people who complete the beginner’s C# RPG lessons.
- Add some more features to a WordPress plugin I wrote to embed YouTube videos, then release it.
- Clean up, and release the source code for Decision Assistant – a program I wrote to evaluate complex decisions.
- A remake of the C# RPG lessons. Since I created it, 18 months ago, I’ve received a lot of feedback and had several ideas on how I would do it differently. If I do this, I’m thinking about also doing it in other (spoken) languages – Spanish would probably be first.
