Since some of you already have some programming experience, I wanted to point out that the banner image on rooseveltcs.org was generated by a program I wrote, with a friend’s help.
We used Processing, a nice programming system for creating graphics and a whole lot more. Processing is installed on the computers in our lab, so feel free to experiment. I hope to include it in our course later in the semester.
You can read about the banner image under the “About|Banner Image” menu item.
If anyone wants to try generating different banner images using my program as a starting point, feel free. I’d be happy to change the banner image on the site to feature any cool stuff you come up with!
