Creative Coding Utrecht MeetUp

What a blissful day at Creative Coding Utrecht! Simon also got a chance to show a few of his projects in Processing to a cool and understanding audience!

Simon and Daniel Shiffman

Today is one of the most beautiful days in Simon’s life: NYU Associate Professor and the creator of Coding Train Daniel Shiffman has been Simon’s guarding angel, role model and source of all the knowledge Simon has accumulated so far (in programming, math, community ethics and English), and today Simon got to meet him for the first time in real life!

Snakes and Ladders in p5.js

Simon built this Snakes and Ladders game on January 27 based on Daniel Shiffman’s live stream (from January 26), adding some extra features of his own. The game is online at https://alpha.editor.p5js.org/simontiger/sketches/BJBLJG5BM

Computer repeats after Simon

Following the exciting text-to-speech and speech-to-text projects yesterday, this morning Simon made a basic speech-to-text-to-speech demo, which means that the computer can now repeat (parrot) everything Simon says.

Simon relied on what he learned during Daniel Shiffman’s two latest live streams on the Coding Train channel in building these projects.

Almost talking to the computer!

This is one of those wow projects, so much fun! Simon built his Text-to-Speech and Speech-to-Text demos following Daniel Shiffman’s recent live streams on working with the p5.Speech library and added some extra style features. This basically means that you can type anything on your computer and hear it say what you’ve typed (in any voice or language!) or, in what Simon said was an easier project, yell something to your computer (I love you!) and watch it type it out for you. The next step will be combining the two and including that code into a chat bot code.

You can play with Simon’s Text-to-Speech demo on GitHub at:

Coding Train

Yesterday Simon got a parcel from the US: Simon’s hero, NYU professor Daniel Shiffman sent him a beautiful gift – a Coding Train shirt! Coding Train is Daniel Shiffman’s channel on YouTube where he records tutorials, coding challenges and live streams. Basically, Coding Train has been Simon’s main learning source in Programming, Math and Physics (and English!) for months.
