watch someone code something weird

Last week Darius Kazemi made a twitter bot via live-code. It’s really fun to see his thought process and trial/error. He plays with RiTa for JavaScript, a natural language processor (which ironically, might be exactly what I need for a non-bot project… stay tuned!).

He uses Node, JavaScript, and something called “grunt” to initiate the project (starts at 7 mins in if you want to skip ahead).

Josh walked in while I was watching and commented “Darius is such a great teacher.” He is! Love to see this live coding.

Maybe I will attempt a live-code (or record-code) session. Could be a good way to get over my fear of video and also impose a strict “make something in an hour” timeline.

I have a month to play (more on that to come as well) so this is all timely. 🙂 Enjoy!

p.s. this post is for Jessie, my favorite/only reader.
