No, that’s not a tobacco product in Cel’s mouth…it’s a piece of straw! LOL
I’m fluent in three languages and can survive (read: eat & shop) in a fourth. I won’t date myself by recalling the days in college when we ‘did’ computers by writing lines of code on individual cards which the professor took to some mysterious location downtown and the following week would return with a print out (if we were lucky…if not, we got our cards back – let’s just say I saved A LOT of trees back then! LOL). When Celestia proposed this workshop I broke out in a sweat. And then I thought of a zillion excuses not to be in-world. BOY, am I glad I decided to take the plunge!
Cel has a great way of introducing new content and then gently easing you into it and tonight was no exception. She told us about Linden Scripting Language, which is the script that allows objects to do what they do in Second Life. She suggested visiting Bromley College where we could progress through some excellent tutorials. She then shared an online tool, Autoscript, that writes scripts for one action at a time and you can choose to combine scripts you create to develop more complex actions. What makes Autoscript valuable is that the creators have allowed you to copy and tweak the scripts without fear of copyright infringement.
and then she crashed…….
…yes, she did. So if you can add to this post please do so in the ‘Comments’ section below.
