A new fresh look!

As of December 2018 this page has received a fresh new look.
The layout has been changed to allow for better categorization of pages and a new “Previous Projects” page has been added to allow for better archiving of previous projects and to act as a sort of portfolio.
As of right now it is uncertain whether new posts will be made since I am unsure what to post about, but this may change in the future.

GDC Vault and Safari Books Online

An early Christmas present to our students:  Uppsala University Library has just helped us extend the GDC Vault subscription throughout 2019, and vastly expand our access to Safari Tech Books Online.

Safari Book previously held only our 100 most used course books and references, and supported a measly 5 simultaneous users – which made it practically useless as a replacement for expensive course literature when an entire class needed it at the same time. From 2019 the database will be […]
