    Chris is a freelance software developer working almost exclusively with Free Software. A constant tinkerer, he has a couple of hundred git repositories, and one or two of them even build sometimes. In addition to software his office is littered with Arduinos, Teensies, and Raspberry Pis with many widgets soldered to them, which certainly give the impression they may do something one day, even if they do occasionally catch on fire. He's hacking on web based decentralization, music technology, and procedural art & video games. Among his more popular repos are: gitnonymous; a shell script environment for making git contributions pseudonymously, bugout; a JavaScript library for wrangling peer-to-peer applications in the browser, PodSixNet; a Python multiplayer games networking library, and PdDroidParty; a open source thing for making music apps for Android.

Abstract

Infinite Lives is a tiny game-jamming collective from Perth. We're building games and tooling with Clojure & ClojureScript. Earlier this year we built px3d, a free software pixel 3D nano-engine that runs in the browser. Built on top of three.js it features a pixel aesthetic and live-reloading of models from Blender. This talk will show off the features of the engine and get you started using it to build games.
