In the .zip file that you download, you’ll find the precoded framework and necessary fonts and libraries. Please start dealing with the code, it may seem a little bit scary for now but the tough job is already done in that code, please try to enjoy and experiment, this week in class we will practice some more together. Don’t forget, the data feed is online and realtime so you should be connected to Internet while you are working.
