Dragons have become a rare commodity these days. Unlike in the early days where maps where mostly about drawing elaborate coastlines between large white spots and occasionally inviting eager explorers with friendly warnings like “Hic sunt dracones”, this has become the age of the settlers: claims have been staked out, crops are being grown and most people make a comfortable living in their nice and safe communities.
Not the best of times to be a dragon hunter who is naturally drawn to the unknown. But those mysterious creatures are still out there, they just managed to hide better. If you only look in the right places you might be able to catch a glimpse of their shiny scales or have your hairs scorched by their fiery breath.
This talk is obviously not about dragons, map making or painfully drawn out metaphors. Instead what awaits you is a variety of Code Art, ramblings about the pursuit of strange ideas and the joy of making things for the sake of making them…and a few dragons.
