First Blog Post

What is this?

For the longest time, this website has just been a placeholder for information about what I’m currently doing if you happened to stumble across it. It would list my latest job, what my research interests where as a PhD student and various pieces of software that seemed to get older and older.

I have continued working on projects throughout this time period, but never really invested in writing down descriptions of them or even publicizing them properly. For example, I spent a large portion of my free time in 2013 developing a website that could generate reasonable recommendations for video games. This was supposed to turn into a series of blog posts on what were the most popular games, how quickly one game would take over the market, how long people spent playing certain games, etc.

Why am I doing this?

First and foremost, this blog is not a set of tutorials on whatever topic I currently find interesting. I’m going to be treating this much more like a journal for topics that I find interesting at the current time and directly relate to projects that I am currently working on. The first of these, will be about game development and some of the more intricate challenges that I have been working on for my new game. Hopefully, in the middle there, I will find some time to write up what I have done for Steam Recommender, but we’ll see how long I can keep this up.
