    Breaker takes Intro to Programming

    After a lot of encouragement from a friend I'm beginning to look into learning programming. The first course I'm wetting my toes with is called Intro to Programming through coursera.org, and has me working with a tool called Scratch. I completed my first mini assignment today, which was to program a short scene of dialogue between two characters.

    Rather than using the provided sprites, I used my avatar and another picture I employed in a thread recently. My scene depicts a dialogue exchange between Breaker and Am'aleh. Check it out!

    My first programming effort - click on the green flag to play it.

    Working in Scratch is kinda fun, and I can use some extra practice. If you'd like me to create a short, lame scene involving your character, post here with an image or two I can use as sprites.

    I did another mini-project today designed to teach me how to use different "costumes" aka make moving pictures. This one has sound. Horrible sound.

    I made my first attempt at a game. It's incredibly basic and buggy, but if you give it a try it will hopefully provide a few moments of humor.

    It stops spawning plankton after three. I hoped to eat more plankton. Plankton is life.

    Good job, man. I always thought programming was interesting, but by the time I found it interesting, I got too old to get into it. It's a young man's game, apparently, and I wish you well with it.

    "Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity."

    Serious Finsou fish saying "Nom" made me laugh. This is a great start, man. I used to program and I know that while it doesn't look flashy, you're taking the necessary small steps to something bigger. Kudos.

    One of my colleagues at my new work is studying programming. He studied game design at uni, and is biding his time (like me) in working until he can design a good enough game, or in my case write a good enough book :P

    I should get you guys in touch.
