Hey, Game Developer! Do you struggle to make your code hang together into a cohesive whole? Find it harder to make changes as your codebase grows? Feel like your game is a giant hairball where everything is intertwined with everything else? Wonder if and how design patterns apply to games? Hear things like “cache coherency” and “object pools”, but don’t know how to use them to make your game faster?

Bret Victor -- who has worked on experimental UI concepts at Apple and created the interactive data graphics for Al Gore’s book, Our Choice -- recently gave a keynote at the Canadian University Software Engineering Conference, talking about living your life based on principles, but also demoed a real-time game editor that makes existing coding tools look pretty primitive. Inspired by Victor’s presentation, developer Chris Granger put together a similar live game editor in Clojurescript. Granger’s take on the idea that all changes you make to the code are reflected immediately in the running game. You change a line of code and the game immediately changes right with it. Granger's demo code is on github, and there's a .jar you can grab if you just want to play with the demo.
