Hiya. Welcome to the website.

We're an alternative gaming community built with open source tools and technology.

A little history...

Egee.io started way back in 2014 as a WordPress blog called BriansProjects and an accompanying YouTube channel. In 2015, BriansProjects switched from WordPress to Ghost.io and began using the Egee.io moniker. Fast-foward to 2016, Egee.io was completely redesigned as a landing page for the Egee.io community and our game servers.

Egee.io Today

Egee.io has evolved from a simple technology blog & YouTube channel to a fully-fledge gaming community with a strong focus on Open Source Software. Our community is mostly based out of Discord, which is not open source, however every piece of the Egee.io infrastructure is Open Source. From the Docker containers our game servers run in, to this website.

Egee.io Software

The Egee.io website was originally written in EmberJS. It was later completely rewritten in ASP .NET Core with Razor Pages. The front-end side of the website uses pure CSS with Bulma. The only JavaScript used on the site is for the social buttons in the footer.

The server-side of Egee.io runs exclusively in Docker containers. The website runs on the .NET Core image. The game servers run on custom Egee.io Docker images which are based on Ubuntu. Each game server container is slightly unique and are organized in a meta-project on the Egee.io organization GitHub.

Who's Egee?

Egee is Brian, a software developer from a Pacific Northwest region of the USA. What started out as a hobby, Egee.io has grown into a full-blown community and a YouTube channel with over 2 million views. You can check out his YouTube channel here.

Brian works for a healthcare company as a senior software enginer doing C# and DevOps stuff. While it would be great to quit the 9-5 job and focus on Egee.io and open source projects, he's not quite there yet. You can support Brian directly by contributing to the Egee.io Patreon!
