DESCRIPTION:
100 Days of Making is a new class at ITP that focuses on having a daily art practice for a period of 100 days.  During my time at ITP I've developed a keen interest in Creative Coding.  This interest began with Processing and has since expanded to Cinder, OpenFrameworks and WebGL / Three.js.  With graduation drawing near, and my proposed Thesis topic not really incorporating much Creative Coding, I've decided to focus my 100 day challenge on building a solid foundation on which to carry forward after ITP.  

For many of my projects at ITP, I've found myself diving in at the deep end and covering different topics as they were needed.  I'm also the first to admit that perhaps I'm often too ambitious in what I hope to achieve, and would be more successful if I focused on smaller achievable goals. For my 100 day challenge, I plan to start with the basics and move forward in an iterative systematic fashion; in the hope that this fills the gaps in my existing knowledge and provides a solid foundation for covering more advanced topics in the future.  The main goal for the challenge is to write some code every day that produces a visual output.  Initially these will be simple, but hopefully as I cover more conceptually complex topics, the visuals will follow suit. Every day I'll be posting the visual output to Tumblr, and will write about what I've learned and/or observations for that particular day on this page.  The total collection can be viewed by clicking on the gallery link below.

My rough plan is as follows (I'll update this as I go):
- Complete the OpenGL in Cinder Guide
- Complete the tutorials on learnopengl.com

TUMBLR BOT

I wrote a Tumblr Bot that aggregates posts for the rest of my class that's doing the #100days challenge, you can see it action HERE or see the source code for it HERE.
