Flashback: A younger, more innocent Jake from college

So I’ve tracked down an article from one of my old colleges that talks about my Capstone project. My team it to the finalist round and was beaten down by a team that had a fancy theory about making money automatically on the stock market (yeah…true story…). Anyway, the project was a bunch of fun and it was my first “official” team/tech lead experience. Here is the link.

EDIT: Here’s a link to one of the images from the article.

Computer Science for Visual/Kinesthetic Learning Styles

September 17, 2012 at 9:33 am (Computer Science, Processing, Programming, Teaching) (, , , )

I’ve been playing with some ideas for how to teach CS and math topics to people with visual and kinesthetic learning styles. This means that they excel at learning by seeing visual examples or by doing and manipulating respectively. I have a Processing demo for teaching basic vector math right now, but its nowhere near ready to be seen yet.

I started playing with the ray tracer Adam Stirtan and I made at university. I plugged in a post processing pass that I had made but never added to the final product. Here’s some of the screenshots from it.
