Final Project.

For my final project, I wanted to recreate one of my favorites all time games that I had played since an early age. the snake game was a very popular game in the 90s and it is still today.

by using multiple functions and conditional statements. I created a simulation that will allow a rectangular shape move around the canvas edges simulating the snake.

after creating my set up function with a canvas of (600,500) I will then create some variables and give them value that will allow my boolean method to take action when creating my snake functions. such as movements.

next I will add my array method that will help me display text in my canvas with my name. The “for” loop goes through our arrays using the index set from 0. also I set the parameter and size by string index.

after that I will create my rectangle shape with the variables I created early this shape will move as the snake I am trying to accomplish. Also I will draw an ellipse that will be please on the top right corner looking like a target for my snake.

this will be my construction boolean statement that will allow my rectangular shape to move from side to side shifting directions when hitting the corners. it is very important to right this if statements as it can’t damages our code. using the true or false method I stated by telling my square to go the right and stop when the square is bigger than the width it will stop and then I will change the speed of X to 0 and give the Y a speed of 5 changing the direction to the upper Y axis, the I wrote a statement that will stop my square when it hits the 200 Y axis and returning to the left by giving Y speed 0 and X speed 5, then I wrote a statement that when the x & are > than 1 will change the direction to the right living me with the last function that is if the square Y = 530 the square will stop. giving the illusion that the snake eat the fruit (ellipse).

last but not least my random function that will multiply the square giving me the illusion to where the snake already passed, the red, green and blue colors are set to 255.

this will be the result. the colors will be the snake trail, where it has pass and and the ellipse will be the target or where the snake is trying to go.

Vestibule Assessment 3/20/19

  1. What is P5? How is it distinguished from Processing?

P5 is a system that run libraries just like JavaScrip to make code more assessable to artist beginners educators etc and it distinguished by making the program more simpler 

2. What does IDE stand for? Describe its components.

Stand for integrated Development Environment and it helps applications with tools like menu bar, project explorer tool box, text editor, etc

3. How do you save a file in the P5 editor? What naming/saving convention might you use? 

On the top left corner we have and option on file tap to save project also I will name it sketch.js as is simpler for programs to run it.

4. What is a library? How do you access and use a library with P5?

Libraries will help us with plug ins such as images, sounds especial canvas like 2d or 3d animations.

5. What do the triangle and circular shapes across the top of the P5 editor represent?

These represent the play animation for the code and to stop it.

6. How do you add and name an additional or new tab in the P5 editor?

On the top of the the processor we will have the option right next to auto save to rename our project

CocoaPods NYC Meet Up

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a meed up in down town New York. it was a great experience as I got the opportunity to see a tech office. it was big, clean, and very bright. I got to spend time with 3 great person who where working on projects individually using Javascript, I felt intimidated as they where very advance and had big projects already. I did not expect the meet up to be this quiet one thing that stand out was the showers in the bathroom, it seems like workers stay there till late and get.the change to shower if need it, that’s great. also they have like a little lounge with gaming system for relaxing.

there where few people who attended the meet up an I got the opportunity to meet this great person Cory Mcaboy. he was one of 3 person who where coding in the cocoa pods. he has a great personality always smiling he show me what he was working on. there was a big project he was trying to debug, it was part of his car dealer website name Askotto. which wasn’t official jet. he show me how he was using GitHub to host his progress and also share it with his friends for comments. Askotto is basically a car comparing website similar to autostrade.com where you can compare car dealerships prices all over the states.

He also show me his website where he had all of his projects and references for people interested in contacted him. I told me how he was working as a free lancer developer and now he just landed a job in a great company which he was very exited to start working for and show them his skills. in addition to his website he is very active in GitHub and slack where he share ideas with his parents.check out his website corymcaboy.com

Code In The Dark Challenge.

Early this week, we got a challenge to identify and modify the code on the p5js birthday candles.



*we started first with by setting a variable for omg and mic that will be used latter to add an image to the canvas and set up micophone.

*the preload function was used to upload this image but there is also another way to do so, instead of a separate function line we will added to the create canvas line with the form.

  loadImage('assets/laDefense.jpg', img => {
    image(img, 0, 0);

we set up the microphone to receive input that will leather be used to change the image into a dark background giving the illusion as the candles being blown. also there is a console.log line (25) that execute the function when executed with a text “who turn off the lights” additional text is being added to the canvas with the tittle “don’t forget to make a wish when you blow the candles” An issue with event function is that you have to completely stop the draw loop and restart it and to clear the console you have to click the red play bottom on the top to start it over.

Where I See Myself In 5 Years.

Im very grateful to have the opportunity to lean to code thought the TechHire program. i have always like how technology is changing the way we live.

for the past 7 years i have work in the hospitality business, fine destination restaurants that have gave me plenty of knowledge on fine cousin and costumer service, most of my clients have show me how great is to have a career on big companies that are changing the world. The company that has impressed me the most is Tesla. Elon Musk had created a company in a concepts of electricity instead of gas for the caring of the planet, Also he has articulated a concept for self driving vehicles that can drive using auto pilot setting. WOW. i will love to be involve in the coding that will be able to move this vehicles from destination A to B and learn more about how i can also be part of something big to come. I also believe Tesla can improve plenty of transportation issues like cost and travel time by applying this new technologies that i want to be part of all.

Not only that, he also is working in a new project name the boring company that is an infrastructure and tunnel construction company helping reduce traffic congestions by allowing cars to drop to the under earth layer where a tunnel can help you mo straght to a new destination with you own car.

Space X was a company they started to help nasa launch new technology rockets to space and be able to landed back with easy and intact without losing any parts that will cost millions to remake.

last but not least the hyperloop was a protect that Elon Musk wanted to add to his company but didn’t have the time or money to started, so he had the idea to give it away to anybody who could see his vision and bring it to live. the project will redefine the transportation system by drilling underground tunnels and have a train that will be suspended by magnets making it to slide at high speeds cutting travel time to less than an hour.

My collaboration work with Sam

last week we have the opportunity to code in teams and i have the opportunity to be the scraper for Samuel who was the driver, we try to create a canvas that look like a piano and try to find ways to incorporate songs to the key notes unfortunate we run out of time and we have to move forward to the next section but we did manage to make the keys and piano look alike.

working with P5js this week.

we learn plenty of new interest an arraya is a list of values that you should separate in comas inside of solit brakets. Arrays are simply store for multiple objects that can be organize in square brackets and can be aces in numerical index through the code. With the first item of the array starting at zero you can also create a loop.

Also we lear to add boolean to our code for true or false statements that can be interpret such as if this is true do this, this method could test a function and keep track of the process while addition or subtracting functions. in this example we can see that if the statement is true and the mouse will go in the middle of the rectangle the square will light a red color inside and if press the background will change to green.We can find more information on this site https://github.com/processing/p5.js/wiki/JavaScript-basics#data-type-boolean

career exploration first week thoughts.

It was very excited and fritting at the Same time to be pick to try out TechHire this week. I always find Tech very interesting and complicated but doable thats why I never doubt myself to go on every time. My professors had been very helpful giving us plenty of resources to continue our education with website links, reference sheets and interactive videos that showed us what type of skill we can learn during this process.

I`I’ve always thought that I need it to be a genius to learn to code or Mohave a huge math understanding to figure out equation for movements but as I have move forwards with all the process, I find out all I need is dedication and skill for better understanding.

A great website that I had the opportunities to review was https://uncubed.com where I found plenty of students that graduated and are uploading their resumes with skills that they have learn in class. I have found many students that have started like me with little to no knowledge and are about to land a great carrier. I am great full to know that Laguardia can help me find a great company that can take my skills for future projects

I can set my mind for greatness using the acronym Smart which is short for Specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, time bound. Using this technique I can set realistic goals that I can find achievable and think about great work places that my skill and well understanding can used to improve their companies. I could set specific goals that I now I can achieve while deciding which areas I am most likely to follow along. I can also measure my goals as I go on to see if I have made great to little progress as I study for classes and projects.  Setting my mind to achievable goals that can give great outcome like learning 3d coding while reading preferences on p5js but also have to be realistic with which companies I like to pic for my future instead of thinking I have the skills to change the world as soon as I finish this program. I believe the most important part of this acronym will be figuring out what will be my timeframe because I can just do my regular hubbies and leave my reading for later knowing that I will be backup and not be able to sleep well which is a very important part of learning.

Fun With Variables On P5js.

can used variables to declare something equals to some other date, and most of their variables we has seen previously in high school. by declaring an object let say number 5 as x the computer will identify everything you ad x as the number 5 so you don’t have to remind it all again. it can also be a shape or a person for example x=dinosaur or x=jhoan, now the computer will identify your character every time you type x to a set of code just to simplify the code you are trying to interpret. back in the days we used to have var as the variable but now we used let to start the process. For more information you can refer to this link. https://github.com/processing/p5.js/wiki/JavaScript-basics#variable-names


Having Fun With P5js March 12.


We can referee to graph bars from our middle school to identify the way computers think when making lines draws and shapes. los of the time computers read shapes locations from left to right (x) up and down (y)

in this example we can see a canvas with a size of 400 high and 400 wide. Also we have a circular shape that has 3 variables the first is the horizontal movement (x) and the second the vertical (y) while the third child be the sizing of the shape.

We have plenty of codes that can form different shapes but not all of them have the same number of variables some has up to six like the triangles. you can also see references and samples by clicking this link. https://p5js.org/reference/

one off the interesting activities that you can do is interactive shapes that can move, rotate and change colors, this is a example of a well organize code that will bring circle shapes to live instead of just stay still. organizing your codes are very important for the functionality of the shapes, if there is a missing comma or a misplace function will damage the whole structure of your design.
