    Organisation is key to having a clear path and mind in what your next goals should be. I use Trello, an online task management platform to organise my work. Read more about how I use Trello as a developer: Using Trello to organise your dev projects.
  2. An online game marketplace and community.

    GameOff is a game development competition hosted by itch.io. For the GameOff 2020 competition, I submitted a game called “SaveTheSheep”. In 2021 I used the “bug” theme of the competition to make a “2.0SaveTheSheep”.
  3. How hackers start their afternoons.

    Throughout 2021, I also discovered some other developer communities which I’ve become a part of such as Codenewbie, Hackernoon and Aviyel. I also kick-started the inspirezone community and Discord server as the starting point of the goal to grow a space where motivated developers can help keep each other accountable.
  4. Feature-packed 2D and 3D open source game engine.

    View the source code for the game on GitHub which was built using Godot game engine.
  5. Automate your workflow from idea to production

    Another hackathon participation was the GitHub Action hackathon hosted by DEV. The goal is to submit a GitHub Action for the challenge designed to help maintainers, contributors or just as a fun way to interact with Actions.
