Hello there! My name's Jordan Earls and I'm a programmer. Recently, I've been doing almost exclusively work in .Net with C#, a bit of raw IL, and in some cases a hefty serving of code generating T4(it's the meta-future!). Sometimes I do a bit of embedded/electronic work with C and C++(http://mbed.org rocks, btw). And finally, I have at least some competence in Ruby, Delphi, and Javascript.

I currently work for PreEmptive Solutions on the Dotfuscator team and troll the dotfuscator tag on occasion.

Most of my personal projects are open source and BSD licensed. The majority of them are at bitbucket with the rest of them being listed on github

Also, you can follow me on the twitters @earlzdotnet

comment How many different configurations are used for software tests?
Ah, didn't see the game-development tag. Yea, I'm not sure then. @mjn I'd suspect testing on major ATI and Nvidia cards(and Intel graphics if it can run it) is required, and ensure it works on 32bit and 64bit OSs.. I'd do more testing beyond that, but since it requires actual hardware, that can get expensive. If you're trying to save some money, get a loyal number of beta testers. Then you'll see some of the "out in the wild" configurations

comment How to make creating viewmodels at runtime less painful
/definetely not a solution to your problem, but I would very much hope you're not using such long variables names in such small scope contexts

comment Open source licenses (specifically GPL) & gamemaker's source format
@MichaelT I wouldn't quite believe that. After all, most artwork(images, logos etc) are "computer generated" with a human to guide, but they are clearly capable of being copyrighted. I'm not a lawyer, but I'd believe it's capable of being open sourced(even if it requires proprietary software to make use of). I'd just include a license.txt file or some such that has the license in it

comment Should I create a new open project to replace an existing one?
@ahjmorton well, it depends on how bad the existing solution sucks and how much time you have to get a new solution to a similar state of "working" then. No one can answer this for you
