WeeWar is pretty fun

Monday, June 25th, 2007 corner

If you’ve ever played Advance Wars on the Game Boy Advance or Nintendo DS, then you’ll be instantly familiar with Weewar. Weewar is a web-based turn-based hex-based pixel-art war game what you play in your browser. Lots of fun and works quite well. Go check it out!

WDANZ Wellington Conference

Monday, June 18th, 2007

At WDANZ‘s Wellington Conference last week, I had the privilege of talking to a group of my peers about how easy JavaScript has become since the DOM — there is still a lot of people in this industry out there who think JavaScript is in the too-hard basket, but if you think about it the right way, it really isn’t.

I had a really good time at the WDANZ Conference. While there wasn’t a spectacular turn out, the quality of the speakers was second-to-none. I learned an absolutely epic amount of stuff about the business hemisphere of this industry, and met some of the most highly respected developers in New Zealand. I won’t be missing the next WDANZ conference in my city!
