New Coding Book! (and my latest coding project)
Ugh so I’ve been pretty sick with a horrible cough this last week, spent most of the weekend on the couch watching I Love Lucy and The Flying Nun (because I’m so hip!). Feeling better, but still not 100%.
BUT I have a new coding book and I’m very excited! :D It’s HTML5 Games: Creating Fun with HTML5, CSS3, and WebGL
by Jacon Seidelin. I can’t wait to start working on it, it looks fantastic. I can’t believe how out-of-date my HTML knowledge has gotten (vintage 2008) and I only recently learned about all the new additions to HTML and CSS. Canvas! ContentEditable! Audio! Smart phone support! I mean, it’s so sci-fi now! ;)
I’ve been working on a text-based online roleplay which is how I realized my coding was so out-of-date. The RP is basically going to be a Harvest Moon fangame (no surprise there) and I was working on some code to make it more interactive than just players writing everything out. Hopefully players will be able to milk their cows and grow multiple crops by the time I’m done :) It’s going to be based in Tumblr and I’ll post more info on it as I get a better idea of what it’s going to be like. Right now I can tell you it’s going to be based in a unique Harvest Moon village and have a central plot of saving the Harvest Goddess’ garden.
And now I have to get to work because it’s 8am Monday morning…
