Yesterday I went to the Noordertest event. I had fun, had some nice and some interesting conversations and attended some lectures. There was one lecture about improving legacy code in automated testing. I didn’t go to that lecture, but the ‘blurb’ spoke about writing unit tests to improve your legacy automated tests.

Ludum Dare 30 + solution

Ludum Dare prototype

While working on an idea for the mini ludum ‘blood in the water’ I made a prototype that was unusable but still had a nice visual effect.
