Week 2: Collective Canvas
This week I experimented with a AJAX, node.js, and websockets by creating a chat webpage. First I followed this tutorial to develop a basic chat app and to get it up and running through a node server. Then I manipulated this example to create my own webpage. The video below shows the resulting webpage. Users can “paint” a square on the canvas of another users page. This experiment is somewhat inspired by the live web example I wrote about last week.
