Re: how does one learn to develop?

Let me start by saying that it's good you're looking at source code and are interested in that stuff, but don't obsess over comparing your code to others. If you're looking at a multi-file project, someone else's code is almost always going to be difficult to comprehend. I started getting into devel...

self.longVariable += 1

Re: Communication amongst team members

It is very good to be comfortable with your team members, and just have a general friendly vibe. You should know what type of person they are, simply because of the level of personal expression that comes with developing games. Maintaining a solid friendship and natural environment with your team is...

Referencing a specific function in a general way

When I say general way, I mean in a way to make it convenient. When we talk about tables, we talk about how they enable us to conveniently reference more than one block of data. instead of appleString = "apple" bananaString = "banana" orangeString = "orange" print(appleString) print(bananaString) pr...
