Do you love gaming? Are you passionate about functional programming?

Well, we have the best talk for you. At Curry On London, Developer Jordy Moos showed us how we can unleash our creativity and apply the tricks of game programming to make a funny game in Elm. 

Let's get gaming!

 

The Tricks of Game Programming in a Pure Functional Language

Do you want to play your own levels in Boulder Dash? Well, you actually can! And I can tell you how it is made. 

This combination of gaming, functional programming, and a nip of nostalgia will give us an interesting and addictive result where you can unleash all your creativity. In this talk, we will discuss how you can apply the tricks of game programming to make a funny game in Elm. As kind of a fun experiment, I recreated the game Boulder Dash with my love of game programming to better learn Elm. The experiment got “a bit out of hand” and the game turned more into a game engine. Not only can we play Boulder Dash, but we can also watch the Game of Life and solve the challenge of day 15 of the Advent of Code 2018. Because why not? I would like to share my enthusiasm for the project and share how things are done. How are some challenges solved functionally? And how can you create your own games using JSON? The goal is to inspire people and to also make something funny.
