    python is kinda cool, pretty powerful if you're good at it
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    @davidjcastner is the ruler of python if you have questions and such
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    nice
    I tried to do some of it before and enjoyed it until none of it would carry over to my phone because you couldn't use python3 on android and python2.1 I believe it was had never been ported

    @Lilyheart
    xD Interesting note... I save my school work in dropbox. The android dropbox editor will let me edit .java files with zero issues. Great for adding those comments when out and about for things like "OMG I KNOW HOW TO FIX THAT PROBLEM" :laughing:

    @lantech19446
    lol
    Lily you might be the only person to figure that out
    Lily Romano

    oh... and the commented idea didn't work xD had to ask the teacher today.

    okay I’m back. so yeah I’m still coming to grips with Udacity’s decision...
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    What the hell is the story with that? Didn't you pay for it?
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    The courses are still available for free at least, and they’re going to refund me the last two months tuition, so it’s really not that bad I guess. I already deviated from their curriculum by delving into React, so my progression from this point forward should be pretty smooth regardless
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Interesting. Well that's something at least.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    Actually, I got the first month for free thanks to my github student package, and they’re going to pay me back the last two months…so it should be free :D
    The Harmonies of Light is neat @KR62 , it reminds me of the musical performances described in The Seventh Tower book series by Garth Nix
    a bit less dramatic in real life, but still a great sound
    I love the pendulum wave effect, is there a way to code that?
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    @KR62 I recommend using this course at Khan Academy to introduce yourself to the power of programming to explore creative disciplines
    KR62
    @KR62
    ok, thanks very much Eric for the suggestion.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    "code that" is a very generic term. Code a website? Code a windows program? "Coding" is a huge disciple with many nooks and crannies.
    KR62
    @KR62
    thanks for checking out Jim Oliver's stuff, I love it.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    yeah that’s easy, especially if it’s just along a single axis. You’ll have to familarize yourself with fundamental programming principles prior to being able to meaningfully reproduce that sort of visualization
    KR62
    @KR62
    Yea, that's the problem with me. Since I don't have the proper background or training I'm kind of lost, just have lots of things I love.
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    start with khan academy, and go through their intro to js course, which is the pre-requisite to the one I shared above
    then we can talk more about bringing something to life
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    What eric said.
    KR62
    @KR62
    Awesome, that's what I needed, a plan of action! Thank you.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Also since fractals is your bag, I say also look at doing as much khan academy math as you can as that will help incredibly in fractals.
    KR62
    @KR62
    thanks Lily.
    Eric, what kinds of things are your specialty? Instruction, gaming, creative stuff...?
    what's JS, Java Script?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Yup! you got it.
    The part that makes websites fun (oversimplification, but still...)
    If I were to remake that pendulum wave in whatever form I wanted to, it would have a javascript base (using paper.js)
    KR62
    @KR62
    Ok, so I guess this is over for tonight? It goes til 7?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    chat party never stops truthfully. It's a daily thing. Just Tuesday night is reserved for coding for those who need a set time on the calendar to work.

    @lantech19446
    @KR62 I basically live here because I work on computers for a living
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    This was done with paper.js
    KR62
    @KR62
    Oh, that sounds good. So I can log in anytime if I have more questions.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    yupyup!
    I really need to get the sound effects working on that dots page.
    KR62
    @KR62
    See, I think sound can be linked to linear shape, such as lines or something, brown and black would be long deep sounds and red, orange and yellow shorter, higher sounds. Make a song/visual display of the elements together.

    @KR62 NPR had someone on recently who actually hears in colors
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    synesthesia is what that's called
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    @KR62 there are many ways I can answer that. I’m most interested in leveraging psychological models in the development of human engagement platforms. I guess more plainly, my specializations are javascript and sass; but i’m more engrossed by meaningful, transformative work than the tools with which I use to accomplish it.

    that circles page is a part clone of http://patatap.com/

    that’s how i see myself anyways :sheep:
