I know it has been an incredibly long time since I last did anything with this blog. Well, I’m going to give it another go. I know that a sizable number of people have signed up as subscribers, but I have no idea how many people are actually reading this. If you do read this, and want to see me posting more often, let me know. Post a comment and let me know what you like/hate about my blog.
I recently updated my About page to show where I am now in my career. In case you missed it, I am now working at Epic Games as a contractor. I have been there for almost a year, and it has been an absolutely amazing experience so far. I work with an incredibly talented group of people who are helping to support everyone who is using Unreal Engine 4. If you have any interest in creating video games, then you should definitely check it out (though I am obviously biased).
Since I am working with UE4 every day, helping people work through some of the problems they are experiencing when making their games, I was thinking about possibly writing an occasional tutorial. Is that something that would be of interest to anyone? If so, post a comment and let me know. I will say however, that any tutorials that I do write will most likely be focused on programming, since that is what I know. I leave the magic of modeling, texturing, animation, etc. to others.
Let me wrap up this post by mentioning that GDC will be starting tomorrow. There will be a lot of great stuff being shown off this week, as well as announcements from Epic and many other companies. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for these announcements, because they will be exciting.
One last note for subscribers. As I mentioned above, I have no idea how many of you are actually reading this. I am thinking about wiping the database clean and starting over from a fresh slate. IF I decide to do that, I will make a post letting everyone know a couple of days before I actually wipe everything. Any subscribers posting comments will be kept in the database, and anyone removed from the database will be free to re-subscribe. I just want to make sure the only people receiving notifications of new posts are people who actually want to receive those notifications.
