@BerlinMiniJam@twitter.com Coding, art, and *ahem* "modelling" was done in 8 hours.

Super thankful that Lucas and Sami introduced me to Unity for this project! Using it and collaborating via Git seemed like a pretty smooth process.

(And isn't Michelle's & Daniel's art just amazing? :O)

At @BerlinMiniJam@twitter.com, Michelle, Daniel, Sami, Lucas, and me made a silly VR game where you're a snail shooting lasers from its eyes, fighting evil salt shakers! πŸ§‚βš‘οΈπŸŒ

The terminal is a plain "termite", which I picked for it's full color emoji support. 🀩 (Open to other suggestions!) github.com/thestinger/termite

The font is "Iosevka"! <3 github.com/be5invis/Iosevka

Not pictured: the program launcher "dmenu2", and the notification daemon "dunst".

This is resloved's fork of "i3-gaps", which adds these lovely rounded corners! github.com/resloved/i3

Shadow effects are added by the compositor "picom", a fork of compton: github.com/yshui/picom

At the bottom there's a "polybar": github.com/polybar/polybar

My window manager is ready for 2020! *configuration intensifies*

Door #7: The Church Asylum of Den Haag – when a Dutch church held a non-stop worship service for almost 100 days, to grant church asylum to a refugee family. advent.morr.cc/2019/7

@CreativeCodeBLN@twitter.com For example, @holllyhook@twitter.com built a Twitter bot based on DialoGPT, a transformer-style neural network trained on human dialogue! @bott_fish@twitter.com

And @loloarmdz@twitter.com showcased a clever approach to simulating lots of particles on the GPU: twitter.com/loloarmdz/status/1

@CreativeCodeBLN@twitter.com Presented projects are documented here: stammtisch.creativecode.berlin I could probably spend days just browsing all the awesomeness there!

Went to the @CreativeCodeBLN@twitter.com meetup today, and had a blast! So many nice, inspiring, diverse people! There's a "meetup" every four weeks, with informal project presentations and plugs. And inbetween, there's a "jam" format for collaborating on projects. creativecode.berlin

Somehow, I anticipated the need for grid coordinate resolution. If I were to do it again, I would stay at the level of crossing straight wire segments.

For day 3 of , my naive solution had quadratic complexity, so I learned how to use hash maps in Haskell! My solution uses a "Map (V2 Int) Int" type to map grid coordinates to a present wire/to a signal delay. Then it's just a mater of finding intersections.

Participating in the ticket raffle for the Fusion Festival for the first time – you can do that until 2019-12-14. Who of you has been there before? :)
