As a developer, I'm not actually much involved in design decisions proper at the moment. My job has largely been handling the mathematics required for features. Things like camera work, line of sight, area of effects, and so on have been my domain so far. Thankfully I have a whiteboard in my apartment, which constantly gets filled with diagrams, equations, etc. before I discover I am wrong yet again and erase it all.
|Don't look too closely, one of my substitutions accidentally made everything work out to 0. The theory was mostly sound, though.|
We're a small studio, with only two developers total (soon three) among artists, designers, writers, etc., many of whom wear multiple hats, so I'm kept pretty busy in the code mines. Frankly, I'm okay with this since I love coding, and I didn't realize I had missed all the math until I started doing it again.
I've been working remotely from home, compared to most of the rest of the team who're in an office in Vancouver, BC. I've never really worked from home permanently before. In my previous job, sometimes I would work from home to enforce an uninterruptable day; the more senior I got, the more folks needed to interact with me, and so interruptions would be constant. So I thought it would be great.
|My home office. Not fancy, but it works quite well.|
The other bonus is having a laptop and working from home is tethering my laptop to my phone and going elsewhere to work. Apparently my apartment building has a gorgeous courtyard in which I can hang out and get stuff done. Clearly that'll be more of an issue come fall, but for now it's great.
|Warm yet shaded. Also, secluded from the rest of the city. I don't even really hear much traffic.|
