Some time ago I recorded this little video developing a simple particle system, from scratch, as an exercise and I thought it would be cool to also share it in here.
To share my approach when facing problems like this, demystifying the difficulty of getting a standalone prototype like this up and running. This was also a nice exercise to move out of the sandbox provided by certain platforms, taking out the training wheels.
As usual, code is licensed under MIT at github.
Let me know what you think.
