This word conjures up several different meanings such as ‘code of conduct’ or the ‘code’ to a safe, but for this blog, I want to look at programming ‘code.’
Isn’t it amazing that by stringing together symbols, numbers, characters and letters, we can get beautiful images like these? They are so lifelike that you can almost hear the roar of the waterfall or feel the gentle touch of the butterfly lighting on your finger.
It fascinates me!
In my new novel, When Two Worlds Collide, the protagonist, Jag Peters, is a computer programmer. He spends his days writing code, but never unlocking the one leading to his own happiness. He lives a settled life with few bumps in his road until he almost collides with Rena Jett and her candy-apple-red Harley. Rena carries deep scars from a lifetime of abuse and hides it behind a dark scowl and sharp tongue. It is a story about opposites with much to learn from each other and, of course, to fall in love with little hope of ever meshing their two worlds. Add in a paranormal aspect and it is shaping up to be a powerful story.
So, the next time you see a GIF like these, or play a computer game, think about the mile-long code it took to create it.
Have you unlocked your own code to life? Have an AWESOME weekend!
