DanceDance and What do you think...?

Tue Mar 14, 2006, 4:01 PM




Hooray, the quarter is almost over! :D :D I have a project final presentation in about half an hour, and then there's finals next week, but overall I'm in a pretty good mood work-wise. =) Last week was pretty hectic... 2 projects and having to conduct like 12 hours of interviews over 4 days... Apologies for not being more active here and responding to all the comments! O__O!

Speaking of comments, I'm really overwhelmed by the positive feedback I've gotten with the last two tutorials! ^_^ It makes me super-happy to hear people find them useful, and I wish everyone the best of luck on all their artistic endeavors. I remember when I was just starting out and tutorials were like Candy to me... I'd eat them up! I even remember my first Really Important Photoshop Tutorial--by Charles Park, oh... like, six years ago. =) He taught me the use of the multiply layer, and where would I be without that? ^^ Other significant tutorials in my earliest art days were how to make a photo-tear (not particularly useful, and I don't even have any examples of that in my gallery now, but... man! It was cool!) and how to make photos fade to white at the borders. ^^

But really, I like teaching a lot. It's a lot of fun! I did tutoring in high school, I taught beginning computer science for two years as a TA in college (now I teach these people how to teach). =P It's one of the most rewarding things I've done, so expect to see new tutorials out every once in a while. I do have one in the planning right now... ^_~ ^_~

Okay, here's my question for this entry, since it's for a friend's research project:

Do you know computer science and/or any programming? If so, why did you learn it, and do you think it's useful? If not, do you think it's important to learn at some point?

I'm curious to see what you guys have to say. =)



M o o d - Taking care of loose ends. I have like, a million unfinished things sitting on my harddrive asking to be finished... Of course, I'll get around to finishing one or two of them if I'm lucky... >D >D First up is finishing up the coloring on "Little Shy Ones." I should also post a picture of the completed "lightning girl." The things I'm itching to begin are another flash project starring Rune, and the FFVII eyes project... ^^

L o v e s - My favorite da artists and why :heart:

very true! website design is soooooo useful. I can't tell you how many times I've had to build a webpage for a class, or a club, or some other reason. >D

Hm. Where do I begin? Yes, I know computer science and some programming (good enough for high-school early-college level, but really high for a 12-year-old in 7th Grade!). I'm a computer geek, so I know alot of things, exspecially since I've seen my big bro build a computer in under 12 hours...twice...from scratch!! :XD: Aren't I special? I learned it because it was always there, and I was curious. My brother would sometimes talk about it, so I learned some from just listening to him. I think its useful because sooner or later, computers are going to be REQUIERED for almost EVERYTHING. I really enjoy it, too, because its fun if you understand, and its usually a real challenge to find out whats wrong at some points.

::exhale:: That was long(actually...kinda short)!! ^^;

a computer in twelve hours..? from scratch? like... from spare metal and wires? O___O Very impressive...
I've only put together computers. =) That's sort of fun.

It's always good to see younger people get more into tech. >D I wish I had started earlier

^^; Yep! From scratch, 12 hours!! Yeah, he had to connect everything!! He had to add three fans, connect the wires, made sure that the mother bored was all nice and not harmed!!

^^ Technology rules!! If you don''t believe me, you can always go to [link] and see all geeky/gamers/hackers/computer swag they have there!!

I know computer science in programming.
I originally learned it to be able to code games (yea, lol o_O), but then stuck to logical constructs and all that fancy stuff and now i just code proof-of-concept and alike >_>
i think it's important to learn some kind of programming language at some point (as long as it's not basic; basic is EVIL), since it's really good training for understanding logical constructs and such - it's pretty neat <_<
my fav language is C (how unusual), it's <3
and uhm, <insert random stuff here to continue>

C++ is my first language. I hold a special place in my heart for it. =) C's malloc is scary... O_O

ebil object-oriented languages nowadays :nod:
i love C because it's so plain ^_^
int *a=malloc(1024*sizeof(int)); what's so scary about that? o_o

but compared to int *a = new int... It's scarier. ^_^
