My first day at FabLb

I am intrested in becoming an Oncologist which falls in the medical field but I love computer work and was reffered to this class so thats why I am here. This being my first day of graphics I learned alot and is excited to continue in expanding my knowl...

kassandra first day of fablab

july 11,2011 today i came in pretty excited not knowing what to expect . we started out reviewing for the people that werent here . As we got more into conversation they showed us a video of what was a led light and different ways on how we our gunah use...

First Day

Today was the first day of class and we came in at 12 pm and then the front desk misinformed us that the class didn’t start until 1 pm. So we waited for a while and came back at 12:50 and the class had already started. Regardless of the time we ar...

Day 1

Today I had lots of fun in this computer class and I learned a lot. There are many interesting topics, like the binary code. I hope that by the end of the program I have a better understanding of computers and gain a new skill that can be useful in the f...

First Day of Creative Computing

At the begining of the class I wasn’t really shure if I was going to like it or not but as the calss continued I was amazed at all the cool stuff I could make with just simple codes. I liked that it lookes complicated but is actually really easy...

First Cool Lesson

From the day after my high school graduation, I had no idea of what I will do for my summer. I had called to different places for jobs or somthing to do to spend my summer. The San Diego State University HCOP introduced me to the Fab Lab class, which I ha...

second day of fablab

second day at fablab was awsome ! i  came in ready to see whats new from the other day at fablab. we first talked about our images from the first day wich was so much fun i got to add a bunch of better codes such as vertex color amazing ! i love the rgb ...

Second Day

Well, today I learned to add different colors to our primitive drawing. I started to add color and add more things to my Pacman picture. I learned how to make beziers and with that new knowledge Icreated the blue ghost. I still  finished because I le...

Second day of fablab!(:

So they second day of fablab was pretty good, we learned how to function vertex’s in our drawings as well as learning how to color them instead of having everything dull from only 1 or 2 colors. My drawing I completed today was a chick next to a fl...

Day 2

I think I’m really starting to understand how to draw using the processing program. Today I was actually able to make a drawing that did not look like an aabstract painting so I’m proud of myself for that :). We learned how to add color to our...

My Second Day

Starting for today, we ha learn how to deal with the colors, vertex, and stroke. These function had make my picture look more attractive for others. Today, I started a new image with a unknown animal. It looks like a chick, but it also seem like a penguin...

Recap of First Week

Hello my name is Alexandra Schaefer and over the last three Fab Lab classes I have learned so much about coding! First we learned the basics, we learned what processing is and how to use it. Once we figured that out we were shown a quick powerpoint of the...

Rock star =)

jajajajajaja how do you like them apples with the program named proceissing finally finshed the star that has taken me 3 hours to make thats what i  call hard work thats y it kame out pretty good 😉

Third day at Fablab

Today I inserted all my coordinates so I could make my second sketch possible. I found that you can always improve your sketches better by tweaking the numbers. Mostly I used custom shapes by using vertex. At first it would not work because I accide...

Day 3

Its Friday! Today I accomplished my goal of drawing using the vertex function. I was able to make three drawings on one page. I only added color to the butterfly and I outlined the other two drawings with green using the stroke function . This week I h...

panda time!

Today was a pretty good day as I continued my expansion of learning about computer programing. As this class continues I feel more and more comfortable about this program and wanting to learn more about it.I am very strongly thinking about taking the more...

Each Day is The New Things

On the Friday, the day was go so slow for me because I did not know what I had to create for my day. After thinking for a long time, I went up with the new sketch with the statement “I Love U,” my feeling at that moment. I had explored wi...

Third Day Reflection

This is an image that I created using the program Processing. It is a basic image using basic primitives and vertex shapes but I plan on taking it a step ahead by making it look more complex than it is already by smoothing out the corners and making it...

July 18th Recap

Today was a great day! After the first week learning how to create images with html codes we took that to a new extreme! We incorporated motion. We were given another presentation about what codes we use for the motion aspect of this class, and where to s...
