Personal dev setup (openframeworks, vscode, etc..)

Tons of things have happened in the last months.. The most important one being that I’m currently in London doing an MA in Computational Arts!

Through the streets of Rome

È passato ormai quasi un anno da quando ho iniziato ad interessarmi concretamente al mondo della Data Visualization, seguendo un breve corso alla RUFA intitolato Open and Big Data Visualization: L’estetica dei flussi.
