WIP : SlickPong

Here is another project I am currently working on, it is a pong like game called SlickPong. Why SlikPong? Because Slick is the name of the Java library I am using to develop this game.

Slick is a 2D Java game library based on LWJGL. This library really ease the development of games, a bad point about it is the lack of documentation in the API but you will find plenty of tutorials to fill this void.

For now the ball can bounce on the screen and I handle the player movement. I am currently working on the collisions between the player & the ball. You can follow this project on GitHub, get the sources if you want: http://github.com/flhacqueba/SlickPong

WIP – Gimp training

One of my current project is to create a full training on the GIMP software. This training is open to everyone, it begins by the basis: understand the interface of the software, how to work with layers and so on. Further chapters will deal with photo editing and graphics creations which will sure be more technical.

Everything will be in videos to make it more pleasant to follow. I already have recorded a couple of chapters and a website is also a work in progress (using CakePHP framework) to provide this training in a nice environment.

I will keep you posted about this project since I do not want to release it until everything is well finished.
