Happy Place Games

Happy Place Games

Game Development
I've been making games since I was a kid in the 80's. I enjoy making games more than I do playing them. What I really enjoy is being able to share my games with other people. I've been fortunate to work at a lot of places that let me share the games I make. TournamentGames.com, Kidscom.com, and Gaiaonline.com. Since I don't work at those places now, I still need an outlet to share my games. Coding is my art. It is what I do!

Everybody's phones are full of photos, musics and essential...

Test WordPress on Mobile

Tips & Tricks, Wordpress
Wordpress generally does a good job of being responsive on its own. Meaning it looks as well on mobile as it does on desktop but sometimes I need to be sure. So if you hit F12 and you're using chrome, a panel will pop up over to the side. You'll find a button there with the phone,and a tablet together. If you press that it'll bring up a series of devices that you can see how your web page looks on that device. You always want to refresh after switching devices, and I've got it set here for IPhone 6, So this is what my website will look like, on the Iphone 6. I can rotate it and that's what it would look like in landscape mode. Let's have a look at the IPad. That's a lot wider. You always want to refresh after you change devices. And flip it, and check the galaxy S5. If...

A Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is: "[the] version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort" — Eric Ries. Planning my Minimal Viable Product Text of Video: So my whole thought, plan and dream was that I was going to make IOS and Android games and live off of that. That was a great dream.
