Alex Lowe, Core Engineer

I was the only second-grader who knew that "laser" is an acronym for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation". I was also the first in my class to be able to make the Vulcan "live long and prosper" hand-sign. By third grade, I was an expert at drawing mushroom clouds, and also highly respected in the making-lightsabers-out-of-broom-handles community.

After this auspicious start to my career, I went to school to study physics, and then I went to some more school to study journalism. Now I'm a programmer, indie game developer and all-around sci-fi fan. I spend my days working with javascript, PHP and Objective-C, and I also change lots of poopy diapers. My family and I live in Humboldt County, California where we have lots of beach bonfires, and occasionally tinker with the idea of starting a drum circle.

You'll probably interact with a LAMP server next few minutes. LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP. It's one of the main weapons of the internet. Learn to set one up yourself.

This cast must be getting blackmailed by Vladimir Putin. That's the only way they could go through with something this asinine.

Part four: We make the barrels tumble and bounce with physics and obliterate them from memory at will.

Outlets like CNN are being played like harps from hell to furnish Kim Jong-un with a crucial weapon: False Equivalence.

Part three: You're probably pretty beat-up after the last tutorial. Don't worry, the sun comes out here and we finally see the fruit of our labors.

Part two: The long one. If you can get through this you're all right. We're going to unwrap the model and texture it. How hard can it be? Ha!

Part one of a four-part series. We're going to crash into Blender. We're going to leave about a pound of our skin and blood on the field and start modeling a barrel.

Someone stole the concept-art from Blade Runner and scooped up some talent from the now-defunct House of Cards, but dammit, they did a pretty decent job with it all.
