Ludology, Ph.D. Adventures!

Git Onboarding (Ph.D. Year 2, Spring Update 11)


Got a very rough skeleton of the simulation into GameMaker for Project CODE, Sarah is patiently waiting (she is working on other things though!) for me to get something more solid in for persons so she can make the resumes and interview games more dynamic. Onboarded Jialin with git basics, and coding/source control standards. Finished drawing diagrams and revisions for theory backdrop and added in some ideas for the discussion section of my SGD theory paper. Published the last weekly quiz for my class, now I need to decide what the final writeup will be and post instructions.
