Are you a C# or XNA developer who is insanely jealous of other development environments that allow you to see code changes instantly or almost-instantly? Have you been considering embedding a scripting language, only to realise that most scripting languages kinda suck?
Were you green with envy when you saw Bret Victor showing off his changes-as-you-type developer tools? (video here, it’s quite long, demo starts at 2:35)
(Or rather: you would have been green with envy… but that would have involved stopping executing, modifying your Colour parameter, recompiling, waiting, starting execution again, and getting back into the desired state. Only to discover you were the wrong shade of green.)
Well worry no longer! In this High Definition (seriously, watch it in 1080p so you can see the text) video demonstration, I’ll show you how you can get the same workflow using nothing but Visual Studio and perhaps a macro tool.
If you’d rather read about this trick than watch a video, I’ve described it in this answer on Stack Overflow.
Next week I’ll post a video that’s actually about the game itself 😉
