    Honestly, we innovated and disrupted so fast, that our attention span reduced significantly while we constantly seek dopamine shots.

    Having said that, there's nothing in tech that excites me anymore.

    @Floydimus yes and no... The end products of these innovations are buggy and half assed.

    It's like that tree and swing analogy...

    Promising too much but not delivering...

    @bioDan It's got too many features, and takes a strong machine to run.

    With Unity I can focus on the actual game, it's light so I can leave it open in the background and get back to it when I have a moment.

    Plus it uses C# which I'm having a lot of fun with.

    @gogokun Super easy.

    There's a lot of game-specific stuff to learn,

    But I find my previous experience translates well to programming for games.

    On infra/ops/networking/security - the game world actually feels a bit behind!

    They don't use many tests, no cicd builds, basic collab workflows, and client/server networking is either simple HTTP requests or black-magick.

    You won't get to use a lot of your infra/ops skills, but security you might.

    Edit: mind you I'm working solo. Actually getting a job with no experience is tricky.
