Muslim rule and compass: the magic of Islamic geometric design

october 2018 by garrettc

Islamic craftsmen turned geometry into an art form because pictures of people were not allowed in holy places. Dutchman Eric Broug - who lives in the north of England - has become a global ambassador for this design style. Here he explains why it fascinates him, and gives a step-by-step guide for a tiling of stars

Say NO to Venn Diagrams When Explaining JOINs

july 2016 by garrettc

In recent times, there have been a couple of tremendously popular blog posts explaining JOINs using Venn Diagrams. After all, relational algebra and SQL are set oriented theories and languages, so it only makes sense to illustrate set operations like JOINs using Venn Diagrams. Right? Google seems to say so: Everyone uses Venn Diagrams to…

Tight Fitting SVG Shapes, the Present and Future

august 2015 by garrettc

"Ana tackles an interesting problem here: what happens when the stroke of an element grows it such that it appears cut off? Getting it to fit tightly again may seem like an exercise in guessing, checking, and magic numbers. But if you know Ana's work, you'll know she is uniquely qualified to teach us the math behind getting to the correct solution."

Stereographic Lampshades

november 2014 by garrettc

I saw an article on the Guardian website here on the 3D-printing of shapes which project interesting patterns of light. Ignoring the strangely forced Halloween reference, I thought this would be an interesting project to attempt for an arbitrary pattern, perhaps as a personalised lampshade.
