Thanks for the questions! While answering I got a ton more questions, this was nice.
If I could leave one last comment, I recommend: make it your identity to be a learner. I believe programming is about constant learning. Celebrate failures because they teach you what doesn't work, so you can focus on other alternatives that might work. Keep track of small lessons you learned every week. Don't be afraid to look into the source code of any library you use. Don't be afraid to debug it. Don't get lazy. Don't be afraid of reading or trying that different language. Draw on paper. Read articles. Be curious. Put yourself in uncomfortable new situations. Make it your identity to be a learner. I'm one too.
Hi André, I would like to know how you went about building Cold Tension (the background story if you can in terms of conceptualization, design and development :-)) and how long it took to build the game. Also, what are the things one must do in order to get started with building a game like Cold Tension?
Hi Andre, I've been focusing on Js for like a 18 months after coming from PHP and Rails. Ive mainly been working with frontend frameworks and tooling but I feel like a jack of all trades, what are the best areas to focus on if I want to become better at FP and asynchronous/ reactive programming, do I need to switch my focus to the back end(node), also do you think it's better to focus on either server or client side over full stack?
I have kind of a weird question, I read about cycle.js ~2015, I actually do enjoy some of the concepts of cycle more than react. But as always business dominated and I mainly use react except for my private projects where I use cycle, aurelia, angular and some old weird stuff I once wrote. I like concepts and ideas more than dogmas.
To the question .... It's a bit weird, I know and I apologize up front, but in the article/presentation I read about reactive concepts in cycle.js there was a paper from a ?french? CS-Student, who wrote about actors and issues of SPLs.
Do you by any reason remember that presentation ? and if you do could you post me the link ?
