This past Saturday, I spent the day teaching about 60 women the basics of programming using the Processing language. It was a lot of fun and a bit nerve wracking since it was my first time. Since that class I’ve been thinking that I could create a few code examples using Processing for some straightforward … Continue reading Learning Processing – Simple Text Parsing, Cleaning and Saving

Roughly speaking, MO&T builds out platform related projects and the content areas leverage the functionality of those projects to build out their sites. The previous post here was a first sketch … Continue reading Creating Data Visualizations for the CBC
