Callout for Code for My Updated Version of the Code Print Dress!

January 18, 2016 0 Comments

A while back a programmer/technologist friend of mine Benjamin Gleitzman (by far one of the nicest, most interesting people I've ever met in the SF Bay Area, creator of the recently famed "Algorithm Auction") asked if I could make him some custom shirts with digitally printed computer code. I was super excited at the idea and thought the lines of code could be this kind of new "pinstripe".

When I first made his shirt he suggested an option to use the original source code from video game 'DOOM'. I remember playing it myself back in the day so I thought it was a fun idea at the time. (how my parents allowed that game into the house I have no idea...oh, to be a teenager!) 

I decided to create a dress out of the print as well:

 


I'd like to reinvent the dress in a new flared skirt style with a new open source code. 

Here's where I could use some help, (since I'm not a programmer) I'd love to hear suggestions on what code I should use for the next print. There's so many languages and I'm not sure which ones are considered "cool" right now.

Color suggestions are also welcome. You can leave your suggestion in the comments, send me a tweet or contact me here.

 

Thanks for your input!
