I didn’t attend many classes, and I didn’t get to know anyone in this class. However, the information that was presented to me was extremely interesting. I came into this class thinking we would learn what the difference between an input device and an output device. I figured it would be incredibly simple and take no effort on my part to excel. I was wrong. This class has made me think and work harder than most classes I have taken up to this point. Fortunately for me the material that Dr. Brown supplies online is AMAZING. Without it I would have definitely had to drop this class.
Thinking back over the course of this semester, the most memorable thing that comes to mind would have to be the scratch project. I messed around with that program for quite some time. While my completed project was pretty terrible, the things I did behind the scenes were quite funny and probably very inappropriate for this forum. Imagination is a terrible thing sometimes lol. I checked out everyone else’s project, and I was amazed at what was accomplished. I played one game where I was a dragon flying around setting fire to countless enemies. It was quite the good time.
I will leave this class with a newfound respect for the people behind the scenes of old and upcoming technology. It wasn’t until I went through this class that I realized just how intelligent some of these people are. I can only hope that my future holds such promise. I doubt that I will be designing the next best video game or developing a new way to tell my computer what to do. However, it is my hope that I will one day be able to work alongside those men and women who are changing the world with new and ever more powerful technologies.
