Welcome! I’m Rapterdragon83!
Oh wow that’s really cool so I have an Q um…I hope u don’t see me as being mean but why did u want to join HSF?
Because I’d like to learn from you all about how to best use HS for coding! I think HS is a beautiful interface for doing programming, and despite its simplicity there is a lot to learn about how to use it effectively (like, how to best use clones, how to best use messages). For example it was from searching for “while loops in hopscotch” that I found the HSF posts about using a custom block that calls itself within a “Check Once If” block to accomplish that, which is super clever. I bet there are other HS programming idioms for me to learn about, or, for me to help discover and document.
I want to become a better HS programmer because it is a fun way to program that is happily totally disconnected from my work, and because I want to be better at helping my daughter make her own games in HS (we’re both paid subscribers). She asked me this morning about how to do something with beats and music, so this week I’ll work on making something that demonstrates elements of what she has in mind, and then she can work on putting something cool together. And from another HSF post I learned the trick about keying notes to various variables, to enable easy playing of chords, which is super cool.
Hopscotch has a lot of possibilities - and I’m still exploring them! Advanced math, regex, and much more is available. People are into modding Hopscotch projects, which are formatted in JSON too.
Cool; thanks. I have published one trail art/game program, and have some questions about best practices for doing math with vectors, but I figured I’d search more on HSF before asking.
Yeah wow it really is tell ur daughter that it’s gonna work! Lol
Haha lol yeah u can look all that up on the HSF! Or maybe as I, just u know @Leaders but u don’t have to do that but they can like show u the correct topic for u! But yeah that was a really great story to hear from u! I am very glad u told us! Lol & well I’m very pleased to hear that! Anyways I hope u learn more with ur daughter & family! Bye
