Yesterday saw my first installment in the Living Learning Coding Class.
I prepared a server with
- The genome game which touched on binary coding
- Blockly Games, which will help with the building blocks for making games
Things I installed, but didn’t use:
- a copy of bmhen.org - discovering that wordpress sites are a right royal pain to move to a local server.
- Google Coder - this is nifty and good-looking, but more designed for one person to work on at a time.
We talked about Binary Numbers with a four person binary counter demo. We managed to get all the computers talking to the server. We built up a simple html page then added a little css.
Not bad for an hour.
Next I need to plan a way to show how to make a game with html, css and js. There are so many tutorials out there, but this morning I’m looking at the Khan Academy computer science course.
I’m stuck on this Challenge - I think my sun is centered fine, but the Khan Academy rubric isn’t satisfied. I guess I should just leave it and go on to the next lesson. See what you think.
Challenge: Shining scaling sun
Made using: Khan Academy Computer Science.
