Rendering animations as combinations of frame generators
View animation.rb
# A demonstration/exploration of generating animation "frames" by combining
# objects that emit sequences of frames, with the following goals:
# * Declarative syntax for convenience and readability
# * Composability, for easily assembling larger animations from smaller pieces
# * Interruptability (see Flagged), so an animation sequence can be interrupted
# * Lazily-evaluated combinations so clock-based animations can be mixed.
# A top-level animation.

Boulder Brain Dump

What even is a Boulder

Here's about 10 minutes of brain dump that could become its own guide with lot more care and attention.

Where to stay

  • Hotel Boulderado: it's right downtown, and walking distance to just about everything
  • Quality Inn & Suites, still downtown-ish.
  • St. Julien, if you're feeling fancy.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
