A wise man said that writing on Medium would be a good career move. Since then, I’ve been looking for a more efficient way to write about coding. A way without having to take several screenshots, find them, copy them to Medium, etc…

I started learning game development from Jonathan Weinberger back at the beginning of the summer in 2020. I started on Udemy and then joined GameDevHQ.

So, this whole game development path started in the summer of 2020. I discovered online courses on Udemy, and enrolled in over a dozen drawing and art courses…

While working on my current project I came across an issue I wanted to solve involving Object Pooling. Now, I’m not sure if it would’ve affected my game much in regards to performance, but it was something I wanted to solve anyway. So here is my solution…

I am using object pooling in my current project for the player bullets, enemies, and power ups. The problem was that every time my player changed weapons, the Pool Manager would instantiate more bullets, adding to the existing bullets in the hierarchy. …
