Today was BlotBot’s first day live on https://blotbot.co/. I wanted to mark the day with a brief introduction.
Recently I completed a short introductory course on SVG. I took Wednesday mornings off work for 5 weeks to complete our set assignments. The last open brief assignment, and a few weekends, resulted in the first version of BlotBot.
Also worth crediting:
Ben Alman’s jquery hashchange plugin that helps keep the blots bookmarkable in a few more browsers.
SVG-Edit proved very valuable for creating some of BlotBot’s precise forms.
Follow @blotbot on Twitter, where I hope to continue blotspotting for as long as someone’s interested.
