Chris Hecker's Homepage
Welcome to my website. Here you'll find my writing, programming, and other miscellanea usually, but not always, relating to game development.
I made my original website in 1997, and then proceeded to not update it for 9 years. I finally got around to making this new one, and I'm really happy with the way it's turning out. I use MediaWiki as the engine for the site, and I'm excited to use tons of amazing Web 2.0 technology to create a website that looks exactly like my hand-coded site, made with emacs and raw html 10 years ago! Now that is progress! If you're interested in the gory details, you can read more about it.
I hope you enjoy my work. Most of this material is from my lectures at the Game Developers Conference and other conferences, and my articles in Game Developer Magazine. Game Developer is a great magazine and it's getting even better all the time. The game industry needs a resource like this, so I encourage you to submit articles for it, whether you're an artist, programmer, designer, musician, business person, or whatever. There are submission guidelines on the website. The more information we share as an industry, the more it benefits us all!
