Simple Comparison of Some Programming Languages

As I say in the video, I get asked now and then what programming language a person should learn. I thought I’d put together a simple demonstration of several, to show some of the similarities and differences, and why it’s a good idea to be proficient in more than one. I’m also trying something new in using my phone as a webcam. Works okay, though it does add a short delay.

Design Notes on a MULE-type Game

I’ve been playing some Stardew Valley lately. I got it from gog.com for $15, which is the most I’ve spent on a game in a long time.
