I really enjoy coding. It think it’s because coding allows me to create something from nothing. That ‘something’ could be a useful feature for a client I work for, but it can also be something for me alone to enjoy. Sometimes the result of what I code doesn’t even do anything useful. It might something that I like looking at or listening to. That sort of coding is also known as creative coding. Here’s the Wikipedia definition:
Creative coding is a type of computer programming in which the goal is to create something expressive instead of functional. It is used to create live visuals for VJing, as well as creating visual art and design, entertainment, art installations, projections and projection mapping, sound art, advertising, product prototypes, and much more.
