Code

without comments

Seems like about a couple of times a year I get it in my head to try and tackle coding in some way shape of form.  Unfortunately, I’m not good at it.  But one of these days I hope for something to finally click.  This particular time, I’m looking at a thing called Processing.  I think it’s basically a fancier level of javascript that’s geared toward artists.  The tutorials are definitely set up to start at the beginning, unlike last year when I thought I’d just figure out Unity (for which I found painstakingly slow explanations of things like shapes, but everything just assumed you knew at least a couple of coding languages going in).  Anyway, I thought I’d share the link here for anyone else who wants to play around with this a little.  A little ways in to the tutorial videos, you get a sandbox to play in there (and if you’re not used to that expression, that’s a place to try typing the code where you can see what it does without first having to work it into an html file for yourself and open it in a browser).

And if you want to get really fancy, Paper.js looks really cool too.  But I think it’s still too far over my head.  Even so, the home page is just lovely to play with.

It’s nice having friends who send you stuff like this 🙂
