GovHack 2017

Nice.

GovHack is wrapped up for 2017. It was finished on the weekend, but Monday and Tuesday were a waste - I have been too miserable and sick to blog about it, and only just got a burst of energy to break through the mehffort. Our entry, Death Who? (Colonial Edition), is a virtual card game based upon real lives recorded in Tasmanian historical records. I wanted to share what I’ve learned about making a super hacky multiplayer game backend from scratch in 46 hours, in case you want to try the same thing.

Pre-WWDC: Escapée

After furiously uploading the previous post, and having a furious amount of sleep, I awoke nice and early and Paris not long afterwards. Showers, clothes, and a pile of chat happened, and we slowly assembled on the couches in the lobby.
