Future posts: It's all about code and Star Wars

Just few days ago I finally published a new post, just before the New Year. But before that I had been silent over a year. Hopefully this year I'll be able to publish more than one post. This post is about my plans what to publish this year.

The past couple of years has been (mostly) good for Star Wars fans. We have gotten new movies and new perspective on the Galaxy far far away.

I have gotten absolutely nuts and geeked out over Star Wars (again). I have read all of the new canon novels. I have read more graphic novels (comics) than I have in ages. I have listened to podcasts about Star Wars and heard almost every theory the Internet has about who is Snoke and who are Rey's parents. I have played the new table-top roleplaying game, aptly named Star Wars, and the new miniatures game Armada published by Fantasy Flight Games.

I would be lying if I'd say I had done this purely for research so I could make some nice posts about the topic. But since I have invested all that time to this "hobby" I thought I might do some post based on my experiences with the books, games and the franchise in general.

In addition to Star Wars, I'm planning to make short post about specific features in various programming languages. Most likely those languages will be Swift, Go and perhaps PHP and Node (JS).

Stay tuned, if you are interested.

Shadowrun Podcasts

When the game session ends your thoughts are still in the game and particularly on the next game if you are a game master. Where is the story going, how can I develop my character? Why was the GM grinning he told us that we are going in Chicago? Where can I get inspiration?

In the days of the mighty Internet there are plenty of sources to choose from but if you don’t have the time or want to dive into the rat-hole of Shadowrun forums (like the official one and Dumpshock) and you want something digestible and condensed you might want to try some Shadowrun themed podcasts.

Shadowrun Fifth Edition

My list might not be the most comprehensive but it includes some very well made podcasts that offer content and are in general very well produced. If you play or run Shadowrun, have a listen to these podcasts. They are free and all you have to lose is your precious time.
