Rotate in 3D with JavaScript

I’m taking online classes in Javascript for a few months while I’m between contracts. I learned how to animate a cube in 3 dimensions today. It uses a library called three.js. As with Jquery libraries, we plug them in (three.js) to make things easier.

I wrote these 50 lines of code that makes it work. It’s a fun lesson, but the full credit needs to go developer.mozilla.org. A lot of that stuff makes no sense to me. I gotta be honest…some of these lessons are so far above my head I wonder sometimes if I’m totally wasting my time learning this stuff. I mean these people are geniuses, probably with masters degrees in computer science. I can write their code and make the lesson work…but full understanding would only come with doing it full time.

 

In other news, I removed my woocomerce store and shopping cart. I had zero sales from it, and it was always worrisome that I would have a purchase while I wasn’t paying attention…which could lead to an unhappy customer. I’m thinking I might try etsy at some point as some artists are selling there.

Selling my paintings is very low on my priority list right now. I think of myself as being in college full-time. I’m hitting the books every weekday, 9 to 5. The only unusual thing is that I’m not enrolled anywhere. I’m doing self study. This stuff is all free online…no need to pay a teacher. Hmmm, that might be a contributing factor to why I’m not working this quarter as a teacher. Go figure.
