Some Background…

I’m starting this blog to document my experience programming some games in my spare time.  First, some background – I have a full-time job as a software engineer working on financial software.  I do most of my programming in c# and c++.  I just had a baby so my free time is pretty limited, but I’d still like to be able to spend some time to work on a side project as a hobby.

I’ve also tried to get a few projects off the ground before.  My most successful was probably my wedding proposal, which got me my 15 minutes of fame.  After getting married, I took a break for a while, but a few years ago, I tried to work on something using XNA and c#.  I worked with a few friends and created a few prototypes, but nothing really panned out.

Now that some time has passed, I’m ready to give it another shot.  In upcoming posts I’ll write about different technologies I’ve evaluated, and what I learn along the way.  Stay tuned!
