CV

Hang Zhang

Game developer

Summary

I like writing beautiful code and music, they share the same perfection!

(But generally speaking it’s just some slogan for HR to read there are lots of code need to be optimised who has time to write a detailed summary better git pull & push)

Go to Technology stack for details.

Currently

I’m a technical sound designer at Suzhou Snail Digital Technology Co., Ltd., China now, my daily duty is all about game audio production but (far) more relates to programming domain, both gameplay and game engine parts (Yep I integrate 3rd-party libs/evaluate new solutions/write & design practical modules in the working pipeline and etc).

I’m here:

Technology stack

Beer drinking

It’s too serious to work in the game industry, so I trained myself a little bit to be an alcohol-oriented programmer.

C++

Struggle in introspection and serialization, and stray around the compiler and linker black magic currently, I’m just wondering when we could stop building our own memory manager/concurrency task manager/reflection system but still, why not?
(I have been taught by myself based on C++11 and higher, so don’t support anything under GCC 4.8.1/MSVC 12.0.)

C#

Only use it sometimes with Unity.

Computer Graphics

OpenGL & DirectX 11 (Vulkan/Metal/DX12 WIP), I like translating some fancy formulae to shader (just after I really understood what those SIGGRAPH papers try to express).
OK what is the best solution of GI???

Dart

Just some 3-day interest in mobile app development
Well since Google has released the stable version of Flutter I could keep working on it Unboungo website again (or jump to another React Native ship?).

Docker

Some IT experience e.g. build and config PM tools like OpenProject for the colleagues.

DSP

Give me some numpy and scipy and let’s DFT/IDFT.

FMOD

Current job related, where the half of the game audio community holy war came from.

Git

Of course (who doesn’t use VCS today?).

Java

Whom the first time I wrote a tiny game engine with and then started to question “where is my memory?”

JavaScript

Some FMOD Studio script experience, it’s nice, tastes like C#/Java/Python.

UNIX

CentOS/Ubuntu/MacOSX, no reason to drown in Windows cliché (also I need some proxy/blogger host server so read a little LAMP 101 and got it works).

Machine learning

I could write a Coursera ML website class finisher level CNN (but still don’t find which project I could insert these TF/Keras code to).

Markdown

Always enjoy writing with md.

Python

Machine learning + DSP programming + Web crawler, documents (and Google) guide me.

Unity

J’aime la happy-happy-multi-scattering engine (typically I only write the evaluation/demonstration code).

Unreal Engine

și macro-rules-all engine (typically I give UML style things and let others wait and cry when they hit the compile button).

Wwise

Current job related, where another half of the game audio community holy war came from.

Projects

InnocenceEngine

Screen capture
I am working on this side project actively now, more detail information is just inside the InnocenceEngine website and the Trello website themselves. Game is hard to develop, harder the game engine it is, but it’s still full of amazing and fun contents when I’m keeping learning and developing (except TMP).

Music

As my past few years’ interests in music, I’ve written and produced lots of Audiomack website music (but most are…horrible enough)

Photography

I like always keeping amateur in Behance website photography, to maintain the inspiration (ok also because the nice equipment is fairly expensive).
