    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.

      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.

    9. Resources for a comprehensive self-education in Computer Sciences

      What is this?

      As someone distinctly outside of the field of programming, with no formal education in the Computer Sciences, I am currently in the process of putting myself through a crash education. I have found the internet is full of helpful guides in some departments (general language syntax, algorithms), while not nearly as easily accessible in other departments (compiler theory/operation, debugging).

      I recently picked up C# on some tilderino's suggestion (months ago, can't remember who it was, thank you if you see this!), and while the Microsoft Documentation is useful when you have a basic understanding of the topic at hand, I found that buying C# 7.0 in a Nutshell put it all together for me, whereas I was struggling with the official resources.

      Since we have quite the concentration of CS and IT related professionals and enthusiasts here, I guess what I'm looking for here are suggestions on books (physical or otherwise), resources, courses, blogs, or even material from your own CS courses or anything else helpful in putting together the bigger picture beyond learning the syntax and solving problems on Project Euler. Anything helpful beyond another "Hello World!" guide really, especially in the realms of debugging best practices, CLI usage (Windows if possible).

      The general topics I'm thinking of are:

      1. Programming Theory/Paradigms
      2. Algorithms
      3. Debugging & Optimization
      4. Compiler Function/Theory
      5. Architecture
      6. Command-line Interfaces
      7. Unlisted Topics (Such as GitHub/Lab Use)
