In the beginning of this week, I was messing around with adding better pathfinding to the game. A* did the trick. Here's an early video where I played around with leading an NPC around a generated map. The heuristic functio...

Unexpected performance in copying a plain data structure (e.g. passing it by value)
When is passing by value preferred over passing by constant reference? It seems this question is surprisingly complicated. Let's assume the structure we're passing does not have a ctor or dtor, and does not lug around any data on the heap that needs to be c...

On JFokus 2015
Last week I was at JFokus , after I won tickets at a JUG event hosted at my job last year. The conference offered a pretty interesting cross-section of hot topics in Java right now. Functional programming is absolutely incandescent. It's probably a natural ...

Progvember 2014 hype

The case for autodidacticism in computer programming
I was recently asked about how being self-educated affected my programming abilities in any way. I hadn't thought the question through prior to this, so I gave some less than satisfactory answer, meandering on about how it was a mixed blessing, or something...

Finding enough hours in the day
Let me proselytize for a moment. For as long as I've had a job, I've been frustrated and intrigued by the conundrum that I work eight hours of the day, I sleep another eight (give or take), yet do not seem to have much time for anything else. That's only si...

Links from a week in bed
This post is just a short link dump. I've been home sick with some never-ending flu for the last week. Adding cabin fever to the actual fever, I got a bit stir crazy and decided to look for some interesting "homework" to offer some mental gymnastics to take...
