I’m currently at ~30% of the lessons and not only I’ve learned some cool stuff already (like sweet sweet ES6 Template Literals), but I’m diving into things that were too scary before. And of course, I started staying late and building things, and I want to show you two of them right now.
In one of the lessons I built a script that allowed the user to draw in a canvas element. Once I got the basics I wanted to take it a little further and added a color pallete, brush sizes, and saving capabilities. Now I can use it at work to sketch quick things.

I’ve always had something about computer-generated images. I never took a stab at it before because I’m not very good at math, but by just playing I discovered that with simple calculations I can generate pretty cool images. Electric Sheep collects what I’ve done so far. I plan to keep going, who knows, maybe that will teach me a little bit of math.
