- First off, Kiana was... ON TIME. Mind blowing, right? I think it caught the JAVA of JAVAK by surprise for sure. We also met Peter, a bright young guy, who has also worked with Dr. Kaun before. (He explored Unity with us today, he's a pretty cool kid!)
- We also got a "present" from Dr. Kaun. This present turned out to be A BOX OF INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED SOUR PATCH KIDS. The excitement of having so many sour patch kids gave us a boost of energy before we even started digging into the large box.
And let me tell you now, before you scroll down, we worked as much as we ate Sour Patch... which is a lot.
Arun took advantage of the awesome IdeaPaint at the Autodesk office. Arun and Kiana collaborated on the scripting for the CAD tutorials. You can see Arun getting the workings of his mind and code onto the wall. You can also see Kiana putting on her thinking face and deciding the best way to proceed with her code.
Kiana made a lot of awesome progress on her GUI and soon her tutorials are going to look hotter than I felt at the train station in 85°F+ weather. Look forward to it, guys.
You can also see Violet's mild frustration with her pulley in the picture to the left. Violet’s been working super hard on recording steps and video editing the tutorial. She sure has a lot to pulley together (including herself sometimes, just kidding, she’s awesome), and she’s doing it pretty well, despite her stressed out expression. Somewhere along the way, Violet also unintentionally taught Kiana how to snap.
Jenny was working hard on getting her awesome toxic waste animation from Maya into Unity; getting that toxic waste caused us to feel a few toxic feelings including FRUSTRATION, and ANGER, and RESIGNATION. Nonetheless, Jenny holds it together and works diligently and we did get an animation up and running! It’s not the same but in my opinion, it looks even more awesome!
I, myself, was too deep in my own modeling to stop and take too many photos. I created more models to be used in our 2nd level and 3rd levels, including hand trucks, wood pallets, and some safety railings. Every time there’s a new model, I get more excited about how great our level will actually look.
