After a what amounts to full year of preparation, bootcamp is underway, and I'm helming a code class. Time to put up or shut up.
So far, things are going pretty well. After a shaky start with the blogs, it looks like most of the students are rocking on them, and we're starting to see some outstanding work posted. They're tired (weren't we all, way back in 2006,) but they seem to be getting on.
Here are my students' blogs:
For my final project in Parsons D&T bootcamp, I created a site called fattofatto.org that was designed to promote the sport of bocce in New York City. I have a real love for the game, so this was a fun project, especially making mini-documentaries by interviewing other players and building a game based bocce's basic skills. Fatto!
This was probably my weakest area coming into the program, but I felt much more confident with my work after taking this.
In the summer of 2006, I got a sneak peek at the MFADT program by taking this month-long crash course. Made a lot of crazy stuff, met a ton of great people, and never slept a wink. Good times.
