Speaker: James Stibbards / JB Hancroft
This is an advanced technical session, for those who would like to have *large* and *complex* projects in SL or OpenSim, but are concerned about the inherent limits of the programming platform and language (LSL). It is not an introduction to coding. It will include an introduction to terminology.
- Participants will be able to design projects which extend beyond the scripting memory model of SL.
- Participants will be able to design projects which extend beyond SL, to include web server computing
Accessibility: Provide a written script during the presentation
Please NOTE the rescheduled time.
Host: Ludova (Quippe Wylder)
The Hero Walk is a circle of twelve colours and pictures. Each picture talks in text when touched, describing that step of Campbell’s hero journey and asking the viewer a question. We’ll begin at The Hero Walk on Aloft, and explore each of the colours and pictures. Then we will join Thuja Hynes on Inspiration Island to learn more about the Hall of Heroes that has been created by Hero Walk users.
- Participants will experience the colourful life of a hero and compare it to their lives.
- Participants will learn how Hero Walk is used in SL to teach self-esteem and the value of diversity.
