1. The Game of Life

    April 30, 2011 by accidentalfish

    I’m not quite sure what set me off thinking about this but I realised this morning that I’d never written a version of John Conway’s The Game of Life (you can get additional background here) and as I had a couple of spare hours over lunch I thought I’d have a quick bash at a JavaScript version using the HTML 5 Canvas feature for rendering the board.

    If you’re interested in this sort of thing you can check it out online here or view the source code on GitHub (MIT license).

    It’s not a “pure” implementation as the board is finite but it was fun to put together.
