The week, Epic revealed Unreal Engine 5. With it, a lot of new tech, and a lot of new questions.
With all the stay at home orders in place across the country, and world, parents are struggling to keep their children both entertained and educated. Let look at a few ways to use games to teach some new skills.
My name is Mark Anthony, named after the Roman general, not the singer. Looking back on the past 2 months of working from home I’ve learned a lot. Working from home has become the new normal for many of us here at Puget Systems.
This is the first entry in a series of blog posts from various folks here at Puget Systems, showing how each of us are coping with the changes to our normal life and work routines during the COVID-19 quarantine.

On the drive from the kid’s school to our home, we pass through a field of black lava formations on the outskirts of Santa Clara, UT. My daughter asked asked why the lava was black, and before I could say anything my son said, “The lava turns into obsidian when it comes in contact with water.”
Where did he learn that? Minecraft.
