# Another Quil sketch

Draft of 2016.08.18

May include: visualization ↖ programming ↙ &c.

Continuing from yesterday afternoon, I spent a bit more time working in ClojureScript and Quil just now, replicating a little thing from 1994 or so. It’s still not interactive, but it’s finally sinking in that working in ClojureScript can *really* be a lot like writing Clojure.
