Old Media: The Comeback Kid

"My childhood can be summed up in two sounds: the theme songs of our Saturday morning cartoons, and the screech of our dial-up internet."

CatCode

For my final project at The Iron Yard, I created an interactive game for students to teach them how to code.

I hope to continue to improve the game and one day try to publish it online.
