This one is a bit outside the normal realm of Ada-DK newsitems, but it does mention Ada programming at the very bottom, and it is written by Freenode IRC #ada channel celebrity caracal, the man behind the Lumen user interface library, so I think it’s worth posting here.
In his latest blog post, caracal talks a bit about gaming, and especially the kind of computer games he enjoys. Here’s the quote that justifies me posting this here:
And when I write software of any noticeable complexity, I prefer to use Ada. So far, the GUIs available for Ada have not been up to my standards, so that’s what I’m working on right now.
If you like playing a game now and then, but feel that the current crop of games really don’t appeal all that much to you, then go read the Shall We Play A Game blog post by caracal. It’s a really good read.
