(Or, how I sort-of learned to be a programmer in four weeks.)
Week Two: Collaboration is the heart of ITP, and this helped me understand why. Not only are two heads better than one, but if you forget a semi-colon or didn’t define a variable, your partner will be there to help you out. Gordie and I made a bouncing bird based on this really basic sketch I did playing with opacity.
Week Three: I felt comfortable enough to get out my laptop on an airplane, open Processing and start coding without the comfort of the Processing reference online or the book. I created a really simple moving ellipse pattern using conditionals, then I collaborated with Joshua to make some drawing patterns with ellipses.
Week Four: I take over the world.
