Technology Notes: 
Decided to give Defold (King) a try for the first time by creating a 2D side scroller. Could have very well been listed as a diversifier considering the documentation relied upon to learn it. Not much of a community yet, but the the team collaboration features are a plus. Engine has potential. Can export games easily for many platforms.
