I'm a Maker, I love making things. I've spent 20 years making software, but recently discovered I love making hardware too. I love creating something of value or fun and placing it into people's hands to use and enjoy.

But ... that doesn't pay the bills. I do a lot of pro-bono work (I'm a qualified schoolteacher, and often teach programming lessons at day-long events, or in schools), and this leaves me feeling guilty at all my useable-but-unpolished projects that I keep to myself because I lack the time / money to finish them. Then sooner or later I take time off (unpaid) to work on them, and end up struggling to pay the rent. Back to work, no more side-projects, and the cycle begins again - but very little gets launched.

So. If you like my previous work - please donate, and enable me to publish this stuff! Things you might have found useful already:

  • my articles on ECS (Entity Component Systems), both here and on my blog (as far back as 2007)
  • my articles on game-design at http://growthofages.com
  • my StackOverflow questions (26,000 rep for solving iOS/Xcode bugs, under the account "adam")
  • my code snippets and libraries for Unity3D
