Dev ‘n Life is a podcast by two friends who record their casual conversations about software development, technology, and personal growth. Follow along as Rob and JD discuss their ideas and views on technology and life as they maintain their long-distance friendship.
Rob is diving into Rust and feels like he has to relearn everything. JD has been diving into game engines, and has set up Bevy for their project. He's hacking around to get a gRPC API set up within the engine, and is blown away by learning about Entity-Component-Systems and Data-Oriented Design.
JD wonders if it makes more sense to focus on game development, or invest equally in building up a community around the project. Rob's concerned that someone might steal their work, and is not too enthusiastic about the idea of open source. The two start a long discussion around this, diving into the pros and cons of open source, the difficulties of monetization, and their fears and concerns regarding the success of the project.
