Game Development Tools and Software

State of GarageGames.com

I once heard someone say that GarageGames is like a cockroach that never dies. Truth be told, the heart of GarageGames is the community that drives it and GarageGames “formal” hasn’t played a role in GG for nearly as long as we did.

100 blogs later…Leaving the garage

Roughly eight years ago I attended my first GDC. While at GDC, I finally got to meet some GarageGames employeed that I’ve only spoken to online. Thanks to the help of Deborah Marshall, I managed to get an introduction to Matt Fairfax…the rest was history.

Programming Vs. Software Development – CodeProject

Introduction

The following is an explanation of the terms “programming” and “Software Development”, as I see it. (They are not necessarily the correct language definitions.)

Programming Creating applications to perform a certain task (tools).
Software Development Creating professional applications that are easy to use, expandable and easy to change. IOW – well designed.

That might sound a bit pretentious, which is certainly not my intention. Let’s make that clear by saying that “programming” can be useful, and is not “stupid” IOW you can e.g. “program” a very complicated, state-of-the-art algorithm. However, when providing an application to the public, one might think of upgrading or re-writing that programmed application to a software development.

Let me finish the introduction by saying that we are all guilty of some form of (dirty) programming at some point. I certainly am not a saint in this regard. We should however, be aware of this so

web development – What are the differences between server-side and client-side programming?

Other answers have focused on what is client-side and server-side programming: what languages are mostly used, what tasks have to be accomplished, etc.

This is absolutely right, but I miss a bit of focus on what are the differences between both types of programming, in the context of web programming. Let me try to address that.

Security and permissions

In client-side programming, you do not have access to the full system, because of security concerns. The user does not necessarily trust each and every piece of code that is downloaded from the web and executed on his machine, and this is the main design goal of the client-side environment (the browser and JavaScript engine): to provide an isolated environment where client code can execute but cannot access anything outside the allowed scope.

In server-side programming, it is good practice to also limit the access of each application to the underlying

Technology, science and capacity building are major pillars of the Means of Implementation of the Post-2015 Agenda and of the Rio+20 follow-up processes. The research, development, deployment, and widespread diffusion of environmentally sound technologies in the context of a Green Economy is also closely linked to other core elements and means of implementation, including innovation, business opportunities and development, trade of environmental goods and services, finance and investment, and institutional capabilities.

In order to eradicate poverty and reorient current unsustainable development trajectories over the period 2015 to 2030, affordable technological solutions have to be developed and disseminated widely in the next fifteen years.
