Back in it! It's been a pretty eventful hiatus... the big news is I got a new job at a great new place, but we also had an amazing time off in Niantic CT, discovered Pokémon GO, and did a bunch of coding!
Zephyr has been amazing about Hopscotch, really motivated to make stuff. He's actually been doing it a lot on his own, like this little exercise where he built a little platform scroller that changed backgrounds when the character got to the end of the screen:
He also made this joystick to control a character on screen, and it totally made me realize how complex the code for a joystick is.
This was a project he made that turns his finger motions into spiraling emoji. He also used this to make a cool spinning wave.
And he's been trying to show Lyric how to code as well!
The only problem is we just updated and now the system looks a little different, which threw Zephyr off a little. It's that same feeling when suddenly there's a new MS Word and all the buttons you were used to being in one place are now in another. I'm confident we'll overcome it.
