gbgcpp – Ribbons using Qt

I’ve been involved in the gbgcpp group, a part of the larger Sweden C++ community, for a couple of years. It is fun to see that there is a lot of C++ developers out there, once you start looking for them. In the next meetup, this Wednesday, there will be both C++ and Qt. The […]

Planning

A new year and a new decade means time for reflection. I try to do this more often than every ten years, but this seems to be a good time to discuss in public. I’ve split this into three phases. Short-term is what I’d like to do in the coming month or so. This year […]

Advent of Code 2019

My work does not involve that much coding any more. I probably spend more time doing email, attending meetings, and preparing presentations than anything else these days. Still, my fingers itch if I don’t get to write some code now and then. This has resulted in small apps such as Mattemonster, where I pushed myself […]

Tech Day by Init

Last Thursday I visited Tech Day by Init and had the opportunity to talk about a topic close to my heart. I decided to do a talk about Open Source Anti-Patterns (you can find the slides over at Kuro Studio). It is always fun visiting TDBI (it is my third year speaking). The audience is […]

Play-ing with Godot

I’ve finally come to a point where I have a project that is useful, and at a good enough quality (anyone with graphics skills who wants to help?) to be shared with the broader world: Mattemonster. What I’m trying to say is that I just went through the process of publishing a Godot app to […]

MX records…

As you might know, I’m a fan of federated services. I tried to promote this during foss-north with conf.tube and mastodon on the list (I’m @e8johan@mastodon.technology). I also got my own nextcloud instance up after much procrastination. Now I decided to start shifting away from gmail. And I’ve been a gmail user since uni’. That […]

NextCloud on Pi Adventures

I spent yesterday *finally* setting up a NextCloud instance of my own. It’s been on my todo since I installed fiber at home and got a decent Internet connection. I started out with Rasbian Lite and combined it with the NextCloudPi install script from ownyourbits. I then used certbot to install certificates from let’s encrypt […]

3D using Godot

It is time for another installment of Godot (previous entries: introduction, 2D). This time, I have dived into the world of 3D. The goal is to recreate parts of an old time favorite: Kosmonaut. Something I remember playing a lot on my dad’s 286 with amazing EGA graphics. The state of the game when writing […]
