First teaching experience in TD

This is my first blog post at TD. I would like to share some of my teadching experiences at the College of Arts and Media, Tongji University. 

I have been working as a physics-based simulation and visual effects software developer. I started teaching interactive programming, originally with processing and meantime started working on some interactive dancing projects in 2016. I find it quite challenging to match up with the ever-changing creativity from the directors and choreographers. I couldn't program and show instant results as some of them might naturally expected from a "developer". Then I find TD a great solution that balances the workload for 80% of the requirements and extensibility if requested. I decided to switch my teaching tools from processing to TD. Here I would like to share some of my students' work and since some of them are about traditional Chinese culture, I'll give a brief explanation.
