Last week in class we created our own website which was something I thought I never would do because you have to pay for it. However using the school code the class was able to get a 1 year membership for a website for free which I found crazy. Trying to find a name for a website was probably the most time consuming thing besides the process of creating the website itself. Something I didn’t know was that there are businesses who buy domain names from people because it’s a trend right now for thousands of dollars. Hopefully this week I’ll get a chance to continue customizing my website to make it my own. Here’s the link to the website if anyone wanted to see it.
In class we learned how to take panoramic photos with an iphone which was something I never knew about my phone. Basically once you turn on panoramic shot, you move slowly from the left to the center on what you are trying to capture. In this case it was me and my classmate on the left side of the hallway. Then once the camera reaches the middle, we go behind the person holding the camera and appear on the right side of the hallway. Then the person holding the camera moves slowly from the center to the right. As a result we captured the entire hallway and my classmates on both sides of the hallway. This is so interesting to me that you can do something like this and hopefully in the future I’ll be able to use the panoramic shot again.
In class we learned how to animate pictures which I found pretty interesting to do. The process however was very technical and missing one step would mess up the entire thing so I had to really pay attention. Once I followed and listened to what professor Ryan was saying, I was able to create my first animation. This is Rudy Gay, a small forward that plays for the Spurs in the NBA. He is my favorite player so hopefully he will have a good season in the upcoming NBA season.
When I first came into class I was trying to figure out what’s the main thing I will be learning about in the class. My family kept asking me what’s CT 101 and I couldn’t give them an answer except I don’t know. As a result I was a little scared and didn’t know what to expect.
Now after a few days of class i can say that I’m not scared but thrilled about the next remaining classes because we learn something new everyday. Learning about technology has always made me excited and I’m always happy to learn more.
