    In this week of DGST 395, I learned more about coding, specifically python. I was nervous to take on this week because before taking this course, I had no prior experience with coding. However, after learning the basics of HTML code, I have been feeling a little more comfortable.

    This week in DGST 395, my main focus was my retro HTML page.

    When we first started working on HTML, I was pretty nervous because I have no previous coding experience. However, once we got into it I really started to enjoy the process of coding.

    Node 2, I’m Through

    by

    I really enjoyed Node 2 and I feel like I got a much larger understanding of AI out of it. To pull from my “Impressions on AI” discussion post:

     On a broad spectrum, I like to use technology as a creative outlet, but I also know I need break from …

    Impressions of AI: A Progression

    (1) As we have started talking about AI my first thought was of an old website my siblings and I used to play on called Cleverbot.com. I believe that this website would be considered a form of AI because like Shane talks about in the …

    Arcade Follow-Up

    by

    Our trip to Reclaim Arcade was truly a unique experience. It felt as though we had been transported back in time to a different decade – a simpler time when technology was more unreachable (in the best way). The decor of the CD room made me feel like I was …

    Life is Strange: The Diner: September 24, 2021

    Today I started outside of the girl’s dormitories. I talked to Samuel Taylor and discovered that he kept photos of Rachel. I was super creeped out by this person. I unlocked a few achievements by taking many photos, but I think I missed one outside of the diner. I talked …

    I honestly think… and I’m weirded out by the fact that I’m saying this… I may actually not hate coding.

    WHAT?! I KNOW.

    Before this semester started, coding was quite honestly one of the scariest things for me. I’ve always done well in school, and quite honestly I’ve never really …

    The Hard Truth

    by

    “The Soft Truth” by Leigh Alexander faces the hard truth of our currently technologically obsessed society: we are constantly chasing the endorphins released from the digital world.

    The narrator turns to satisfying videos for an escape of the anxieties of the real world–and honestly it’s terrifying. Sure, I don’t go …

    I’m not going to lie… coding is not coming naturally to me.

    Usually, I’m good with puzzles. I have my final picture, there are a lot of separate pieces, and I test the placements until I have my final product.

    However, I feel like in coding I don’t have my …
