Goodliffe presents sound advice that he’s learned in 15 years of professional programming. The book’s standalone chapters span the range of a software developer’s life—dealing with code, learning the trade, and improving performance—with no language or industry bias. Whether you’re a seasoned developer, a neophyte professional, or a hobbyist, you’ll find valuable tips in five independent categories:Code-level techniques for crafting lines of code, testing, debugging, and coping with complexityPractices, approaches, and attitudes: keep it simple, collaborate well, reuse, and create malleable codeTactics for learning effectively, behaving ethically, finding challenges, and avoiding stagnationPractical ways to complete things: use the right tools, know what “done” looks like, and seek help from colleaguesHabits for working well with others, and pursuing development as a social activity
You will learn how to write a robust game loop, how to organize your entities using components, and take advantage of the CPUs cache to improve your performance. You'll dive deep into how scripting engines encode behavior, how quadtrees and other spatial partitions optimize your engine, and how other classic design patterns can be used in games.
A few notes about using this book:
(1) This book contains embedded videos. Not all readers support video. If you read directly on Google Play, you can only see videos in "flowable text" mode.
(2) Blocks of code and other large items do not format well in flowable text mode. You can select "original page" mode to view such things in a full page layout as they were in the original pdf version.
