Had my most intense interview yet this afternoon, concluding with 20 mins. of pair programming. Chilling now with some ambient tunes and book buying

Having an absolute ball with this SDL tutorial. It's satisfying doing it in C rather than JS (though I fully acknowledge the amazing technology behind rendering games or 3D stuff in-browser) parallelrealities.co.uk/tutori
