Coding Challenge #1: Starfield in Processing

This is the first in a new series of videos. In this video I attempt to program a “star field” or “warp speed” visualization in Processing.

Send me your 10 minute coding challenge!

Source Code:

The code I wrote in the video was inspired by this example:

Help us caption & translate this video!

    I'm really newb. What program do you need to do this?

    Edit: alright so I would recommend if you are completely new to coding not to just copy it. I copied it but I had no clue how to manipulate all the functions. You should go to his earlier videos explaining how to use processing which is the program he used to make this star field.

    meanwhile the most advanced thing i can make uder 15 mins is a program that expands (xa+/-yb)^n where x and y are integers.

    Why did the Bryn Mawr implementation linked in the description use pop & pushMatrix(), translate() and scale() each time a star is drawn, rather than just keep the matrix static like Dan's version? Which one is preferable and why?

    I'm your Argentinian fan although it costs me a little to understand your English when you speak at the speed of light, haha. I love your videos I have learned a lot, sometimes it costs a little to follow the reasoning that you do to reach a solution but I am excited to continue learning. I am translating some videos so that more Latin Americans can understand them better.

    I wanna see this video remade, but you don't spend time explaining what your doing and just code nonstop, you would cut off like 5 minutes from everything lol

    Please upload more video. You are the best programer which I have know.
    I think you can make a video which render a lot of cube. I mean there is a camera and camera look at some cubes and render it with 3d to 2d projection.
    Like that :
