So, I've had a Skillshare membership for approximately 1000 years now, and enrolled in a number of classes there. But trying to find a lot of time for both watching videos, practicing, and creating projects has rather eluded me until this week. I found Nicholas Felton's Data Visualization: Designing Maps with Processing and Illustrator course, and immediately I was hooked.
Which makes no sense, considering it's got !!!PROGRAMMING!!!!! - my old nemesis.
But on the other hand.....it also has maps, the objects of my greatest visually-inclined-geography-nerd love. So I figure that's the key.
Processing seems like a really awesome, powerful tool. My execution maybe needs more refinement, but I'm excited to jump in and practice with more maps, and puzzle out how to make even more kinds of graphs and charts, to really round out my infographic makin' skills.
