Visuell programmering i Processing

I dag holdt jeg en liten innledning og workshop om visuell programmering hos Norsk Telemuseum på Kjelsås. Jeg ønsket å vise fram programmeringsmiljøet rundt Processing og var også innom forskjellige emner jeg mener er viktig i dagens IT-landskap.

Start with Ruby on Rails

Over the last two months I have been looking into a new way of doing web-development, and found an ingenious timesaver in the relatively new and popular framework Ruby on Rails.
