Looking back on baby steps

Yours truly, back in January 2009:

I’ve started from scratch, learning Processing using Dan Shiffman’s handy book Learning Processing. Above is the first little creation from the book, a little creature called Zoog, which I’ll be wiring up to respond to mouse clicks and all kinds of computer interactivity. It’s not much to start with, but it’s fun to get my hands dirty with Processing and learn some coding fundamentals.

It’s hard to imagine that — less than 5 years later — I would find myself teaching primary school children how to build apps for iOS in Xcode. Amazing.
