Learning Unity 3D - Creating a Test Scene and First Person Player Object
So for a while now I've been meaning to put my old game, Phase Shift, onto a new platform. Unity 3D seems to be just what I want - except I'm a complete noob at it. The only thing I bring to the table at the moment is my knowledge of C#. But I'm undeterred....

An Slight Detour From TDD in Favour of Entity Framework 7
Now that I've created a class for my locations, I need a way to store them. Unfortunately Microsoft, for reasons I have yet to fathom, decided that the best way to store data for MS Store applications would be as XML or JSON text files. Looking at my fledgl...

Not directly related to tonight's hangout, so I'm posting this here. There was mention of the problem that EU based businesses face with the new VAT regulations. I got a little confused because my accountant told me that as long as I was selling my courses through a third-party platform, I'd be OK. Looking at the VAT flowchart on the inland revenue I get the same (https://whitehall-admin.production.alphagov.co.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/415931/VAT_MOSS_Flow_chart_FSB_edit_V1_0.pdf)

During the hangout it was mentioned that Udemy handled EU VAT, but that some other platforms could get UK-based educators in trouble with the VAT people. Does anybody here know something about this? Is this something that doesn't apply to businesses that aren't VAT registered?
