      Don't forget to format your code using the triple backticks or tildes:

      Here is my schema:

    4. RoguelikeDev Does The Complete Roguelike Tutorial Starting June 16th 2020

      Text of the post copied below, to save you from having to wait for Reddit to load:

      Roguelikedev Does The Complete Roguelike Tutorial is back again this year. It will start in three weeks on Tuesday June 16th. The goal is the same this year - to give roguelike devs the encouragement to start creating a roguelike and to carry through to the end.

      Like last year, we'll be following http://rogueliketutorials.com/tutorials/tcod/. The tutorial is written for Python+libtcod but, If you want to tag along using a different language or library you are encouraged to join as well with the expectation that you'll be blazing your own trail.

      The series will follow a once-a-week cadence. Each week a discussion post will link to that week's Complete Roguelike Tutorial sections as well as relevant FAQ Fridays posts. The discussion will be a way to work out any problems, brainstorm ideas, share progress and any tangential chatting.

      If you like, the Roguelike(dev) discord's #roguelikedev-help channel is a great place to hangout and get tutorial help in a more interactive setting.

      Schedule Summary

      Week 1- Tues June 16th

      Parts 0 & 1

      Week 2- Tues June 23th

      Parts 2 & 3

      Week 3 - Tues June 30th

      Parts 4 & 5

      Week 4 - Tues July 7th

      Parts 6 & 7

      Week 5 - Tues July 14th

      Parts 8 & 9

      Week 6 - Tues July 21th

      Parts 10 & 11

      Week 8 - Tues July 28th

      Share you game / Conclusion

      I've followed along with these before and it's a pretty fun experience. Even if you have made a roguelike before, you will still learn a lot of new things by keeping up with and reading the comments and code posted by others as the event goes on.

      For anyone wanting to dip their toes into basic game development, this a great, hand-holding way to do that.

    6. How do you design a Proof of Concept project for a new dev/test tool?

      Input wanted for an article.

      Let's say that your company is considering the purchase of an expensive new application to help in the company's software development. The demo looks great, and the feature list makes it sound perfect for your needs. So your Management arranges for a proof of concept license to find out if the software is worth the hefty investment. The boss comes to you to ask you to be in charge of the PoC project.

      I'm aiming to write an article to help developers, devops, and testers determine if a given vendor's application meets the company's needs. The only assumption I'm making is that the software is expensive; if it's cheap, the easy answer is, "Buy a copy for a small team and see what they think." And I'm thinking in terms of development software rather than enterprise tools (e.g. cloud-based backup) though I suspect many of the practices are similar.

      Aside: Note that this project is beyond "Decide if we need such a thing." In this scenario, everyone agrees that purchasing a tool is a good idea, and they agree on the baseline requirements. The issue is whether this is the right software for the job.

      So, how do you go about it? I'm sure that it's more than "Get a copy and poke at it randomly." How did (or would) you go about designing a PoC project? If you've been involved in such a project in the past (particularly if the purchase wasn't ideal), what advice could someone have given you to help you make a better choice? I want to create a useful guide that applies to any "enterprise-class" purchase.

      For example: Do you recommend that the PoC period be based on time (N months) or workload (N transactions)? How do you decide who should be on the PoC team? What's involved in putting together a comprehensive list of requirements (e.g. integrates with OurFavoredDatabase, meets performance goals of X), creating a test suite that exercises what the software dev product does, and evaluating the results? ...and what am I not thinking of, that I should?

      I asked this question over on HN but I thought I would ask it here as well.

      A little context. I'm currently a junior in a middle of the road state university studying for a degree in software engineering. I have been doing a lot of reading - whether it be comments on Reddit, articles, etc - and it appears that there is an abundance of junior developers looking to enter the job market, but very few "good developers".
      My question is, what is it that sets someone apart as a good developer? I know this question is very vague but it's also very vague whenever I see it used.

      Thank you for your time.

      EDIT: I plan on going through and reading all of your input and responding! Thank you so much for your time. Unfortunately, I am stuck finishing up last minute school work. Can't wait to dig into this.
