The game development industry recently gave us a bunch of free game engines. #Unity3D , #UnrealEngine4  and #SourceEngine2  are now available for free, each under different conditions. That raises a question: are open source engines like #jMonkeyEngine  still relevant?

The short answer: yes.
In the age of free AAA game engines like Unity 5, Unreal Engine 4 and Source 2, are indie open source engines like jMonkeyEngine still relevant?

Ye, there are 3 major "free" definitions:
- no cost
- source openly available but restriced
- libre/OpenSource (with out any restrictions)

Of course they can be combined (OpenSource but binaries cost, etc.)

Slowing down on programming is good or bad? What do you think?
Are you a fast or slow programmer?
When it comes to successful software, does it pay to have fast coders? Or does slow and steady always win the race?

I get where you are coming from +Phil Hibbs but you have to admit how it comes across. We all have to balance time and quality. If a client wants a $10,000 software project done for $1,000 doesn't mean you should. Maybe you kick it off with a $1,00 budget but eventually they should expect to spend the full amount because that's what it takes to produce the product they want. You are the expert after all. Not them. That's why they hired you.

If I were building a house and the customer wanted to skimp on the 2x4's and use 32" centers instead of 16", I would refuse, because it's not how you do construction and it is not to the benefit of the customer either just to save a few bucks. Reduce scope, not quality.

New distro with design based on Google's.
 
Ubuntu has been suggested as the base
Google's new Material Design approach proved to be a real success and now Linux developers are looking to make a new distribution that is capable of adhering to those guidelines, which is actually something new in the ecosystem.

Don't ever give up your dreams.
 
Here’s the thing… You could have been exactly where you want to be right now. You could have gotten the perfect job. You could have started that business you always wanted to start. You could have gotten those 6-pack abs. You could have even met the love of your life. There has only been one thing standing in your way, and there will always be one thing standing in your way–you!

Well, Unity isn't even on Linux, it can only publish for it. So, where Linux development is concerned Unity is pointless anyway!

On large projects, use a single language for everything.
 
Do you agree with Software Engineer +Lawrence Kesteloot on his new approach: Do everything in Java?

You can find his story on this blog post: http://www.teamten.com/lawrence/writings/java-for-everything.html

For those who are trying to learn some OpenGL.
OpenGL is a well-known standard for generating 3-D as well as 2-D graphics that is extremely powerful and has many capabilities. OpenGL is defined and released by the OpenGL Architecture Review Board (ARB). This article is a gentle introduction to OpenGL that will help you understand drawing using OpenGL.
