We’re going to continue with DisplayObject which extends Scene. You can review the schema in part 1 of this series but we’re going to make some changes to how things are named. Its job is very simple; it will group objects that need to be rendered in a children array and it will expose methods

Time to get started on the core components of the game engine. We should be able to render something on the Canvas before the end of this article! Note: please be aware that I’ll add links to specific pieces of code in the GIT repository history tree. This will make it easier for you to

December 6th, 2016|Categories: Perl, Technical, Written by our colleagues|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Programming is beyond the grasp of most people, it doesn't matter if we’re talking about Perl or another language.

Failing to do so will substantially cut revenue

Creating custom hooks in Dancer2

November 18th, 2016|Categories: Perl, Technical, Written by our colleagues|Tags: , , , , , , |

Dancer2 is a powerful and flexible framework that is a rewrite of Dancer, made easy to use and with a decent ecosystem of extensions. With all these I was finding myself writing some pieces of code that were more or less the same across the application and could not find a decent way to group

If you’re still looking for what IDE to use for PHP development, you’ve just found it. It’s PHPStorm period. Take this from a guy that tried a lot of them before finding the right one. I tried Eclipse, Aptana and NetBeans. They are OK, but they cannot compare with the power PHPStorm has. I even
