January was suppose to be a fresh start after not so successful 2022 (to say the least) - I can't say we did all what we wanted, since we didn't (flu season is still on), but we did some of that.
The first half of the year went rather ok, the second - not so good. From the current point of view it seems those were the worst twelve months since at least a couple of years, if not ever - various health issues of all our bunch made us fail to deliver multiple projects planned for 2022.
Just before Christmas the Gamedev.js Weekly's email was used as the sender address to deliver some ridiculous amounts of random spam to folks who weren't even subscribed to the actual newsletter - I've received hundreds of hateful replies to my inbox on December 24th.
This year's js13kGames opening and closing online meetups, Kick-off and Awards Ceremony respectively, after a few years of being led by Sascha Depold from eBay, were hosted by me personally.
I'm always excited to see my gamedev related Open Source work being used by others - the most recent case is Monster Wants Candy demo (a base for the tutorial) helping with a master thesis about cognitive processes!
Meet.js Summit is the very first conference I gave talk at, all the way back in 2012, so a decade later I was quite happy to be able to join the 2022 edition as a speaker again.
