Why Learn to Program?

Post by Mr_Pleco on 4/2/2013, 9:20 pm

It's fun!

This took me about 8 hours from starting with an idea to generating graphics to getting code written: http://www.pleco-is-bored.com/

Best viewed in google chrome or firefox.

*edit*

Up to about 12 hours now with the addition of sliders and opacity.

Damn, Pleco, That's epic! Very Happy

If only it could be a desktop background. XD
Kinda like the matrix, except they're letters and not numbers.
Btw, which programming language did you use to make it?

Primarily javascript, python and C#, but I can also handle java and php if needed.
