Animating my name

 

As some of the regulars here may be aware, for the past few months I have been learning coding with the help of online code school Codecademy. Today marks the completion of their Learn HTML course. Now I’ve started a fun project/mini-course using JavaScript to produce a funky little animation of my name where the little circles move aside when you roll your mouse over it. The GIF above, from a Codecademy email, shows what the final result could look like.

Never forget my name

 

Recently I visited the website PicGifs.com, which offers a wide selection of pre-Tumblr animated GIFs for free use. They have this cool glitter text generator where you can transform a word into a GIF from a choice of fancy ABCs. I put my name through the GTG and these guys came out.
