Debug.Log(“Hello World”);

For my first post, I thought I’d start out with a little intro.

To whom it may concern,

My name is Spencer Evans. I am a game developer with, at the time of writing, over 10 years of experience building hobby projects and over 5 years of professional experience developing my own games and client projects. I’ve worked on everything from composing simple click through game “experiences” to developing immersive, story-driven worlds. Puzzle games, adventure games, shooters, multi-player… you name it, I’ve done it.

I hold a BS in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an entrepreneurship focused MBA from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management. I am probably not as active in social media as I should be, but I use Facebook and LinkedIn. Follow my company Twitter, rather than my own.

I’ve worked with a broad array of languages but tend to favor C# and Ruby when possible. I’m not too hip on JavaScript or HTML5, but such is the direction of the world. I am a coding traditionalist. I believe everyone should learn C and C++ to a certain extent. If you’ve only ever worked with JS or python, it’s time to branch out.

I own many Mac products, but I am foremost a Windows User, an Android User, and a supporter of open platform. I admire Facebook.

I am currently working on company I helped co-found a couple years back, Naut Games. We’re still in the early stages, but have a couple self-released titles under our belt, which I don’t want to be the topic of this blog.

So what is this blog? Well, it is whatever I, and its followers, want it to be. Occasionally I will post interesting findings, thoughts, or gems related to game development and code. For the foreseeable future, I imagine the primary focus of posts will be C#, Unity, Visual Studio, Ruby, and HTML5 focused with a splash of AS3 and Adobe AIR / Flash (yes, I said it, Flash). I may also riff on life in San Francisco. Feel free if to reach out if there is anything you’re interested in learning more about.

What’s up with the name? Well, I love tacos, the mind-bending challenge of game development, and the sleep-depriving excitement of foraying into the ambiguous world of entrepreneurship. That’s my life, Tacos and Strife.

I hope that whatever you find here, you find to be useful or at least amusing.

Happy building,

S
