Who? What?

Hi! I'm Chris (Baggers) and I'm making open source graphics libraries for lisp & streaming my experience learning this wonderful part of the programming landscape.

My particular interest is in GPU coding and so I've been making:

- CEPL: Which is a lispy way to use GL
- Varjo: A lisp to glsl compiler
- glsl-spec: A project to provide the whole glsl api as a data-structure to help other people in other language making glsl tools
- Nineveh: A 'standard library' of helpful gpu functions (for use with CEPL)
- rtg-math: A library with a bunch of essential math routines for graphics (vectors, matrices, quaternions, etc)
- a whole bunch more

Whilst I have gained a bunch of knowledge about GL itself I'm a beginner in graphics programming. Having been inspired by a bunch of other great folks streaming their passion I've started streaming my experience learning something graphics related each Wednesday.

The response has been wonderful and the people tuning in have been helping me and hanging out each week, generally making the whole process a joy (even on the weeks I fail).

Why are you here? What are you using this for?

I am here as I was asked to set this up by one of the folks who tunes into the streams. I'm flattered, of course, but as my tools are all open source I have very few costs. I do however find that changing scene whilst coding can really help the process and if this patreon could fund a coffee or two a month down the local cafe then that would be a roaring success in my book.

Anything else?

I'd just like to say to check out the other great work by folks in the common lisp graphics space; 3b, borodust, Shinmera, rpav and more are making very cool things. If you are into this kind of thing, come on down to #lispgames on freenode or just play with lisp! I find it such a fun environment to code in and I hope you do too.

Oh and finally, I'm streaming every Wednesday at 18:00 UTC at https://www.twitch.tv/baggers___ , if you can spare the time we would love to see you there.

Peace
