Primary Technology is a good place to work, the main reason being is that I have a lot of freedom to be creative. The ability to be creative means I get to work with a lot of different platforms and technologies. The next project I have been asked to do is a “web based really real time light-weight open source collaborative sticky note tool” AKA PrimaryWall. o_O
So let’s break that down… Web based, easy.. Really real time, not so easy when using conventions… light-weight, easy-ish.. open source, sort of easy.. collaborative, not so easy…
I could go ahead and make something with AJAX & Apache but it wouldn’t be as really real time as a lot of genuine really-real time so I’m going to be better off using NodeJS and Web Sockets. I did an example using Socket and Node a week or so ago that really got me thinking about how I can/could apply what I had learned to the projects I work on at Primary Technology.
So I have 4 weeks to build a game then 4 weeks to build PrimaryWall (It is due at the end of March). The game will be called either “Tag” or “You’re it” and will be a simple multi-mouse game where moving the mouse is all that is required to play.
Any developers that read this think that I’m wasting my time and should just go for it?
