I've been doing some coursework on embedded development for ARM microcontrollers.

Much to my surprise, this has been entirely boring and uninteresting.

On a lark I looked up some Vulkan API documentation and became immediately hooked. Last night I was up until after 10pm programming graphics for fun. I don't even know the last time I chose to program over other activities for fun.

@groovestomp Specificially due to the Vulkan API or just because graphics programming tends to be more fun than most other things we do at computers, now as it was on 8-Bit computers 40 years ago? ;)

@mhd More the latter than the former. I wouldn't say I know very much about the Vulkan API itself yet.
