First Case Study (Chat) & Open Thoughts

By Jeffrey M. Barber

The language is in a high functioning state, and it is validating the vision that I have as a madman lunatic. Today, I would like to jump ahead into the future and share the vision for how to build products with the platform that I envision. This is a useful exercise as I am in the process of defining the service beyond the series of hacks that got my prototype working. More importantly, I want to share this vision with you, and I’d also like to quickly contrast this to the past.

Performance Updates & Good-Enough?!?

Performance Funday

By Jeffrey M. Barber

A non-productive theme for July is to jump into performance and measure a few things. The hope is that this search will produce some low-hanging fruit that I can exploit, and I also intend to validate correctness on many things since there are some slap dashing stupid stuff. A core reason for the urgency beyond being interesting work is that I want to utilize permutation testing as a way of finding novel test-cases. Given that it took a bit over half a day to simulate playing 1.2 M games, I would like to be able to cut that time down.

Going HAM on the parser with next level testing

By Jeffrey M. Barber

Finding the balance between what to work on is a challenge when there are so many interesting problems ahead. Testing the back-end for the current game has proved to be a challenge due to the entropy involved, so I’m thinking about ways of building tooling to corral that complexity and chaos.
