So, you're all good at Coding, but what else can you do?
This month it's Other Skills month, where we'll be taking a look at your other talents.

If you're a musician, take some time to build up a few showcase pieces that we can all listen to. Maybe create a set of files, ready to be used in games.

If you're an artist, draw us some great artwork. Maybe base it on a game, or do a few random sketches. Perhaps even draw up a little comic strip or two.

Writers, get writing your articles, poems, short stories, or even use the month to start that novel you always wanted to do.

Maybe you're a more hands-on creative person? Get out your camera and start making some neat stuff.

Whatever it is that you like to do, use the month to get something interesting done, and let us all know how it goes.

(And if you can't find a space on the site for anything to fit into, let me know!)

Of course it does, steve!
We've seen the pics, now get some vids up, or something

And, looking forward to the claymation!

I write music and study / work on robotics with most of my free time that's not spent on coding.

First you bug us to sit down on our lazy asses and finish coding, then you ask us to get up and go do something else! C'mon...

I like to write, I like to draw, I like to film, I play trumpet and piano, I'll think of something!

I talk on IRC. Is that a skill?

Funny thing is, I've pre-empted this post by deciding about a week ago to start posting on my blog three times a week. So by the end of may, I hopefully should be a lot better writer than I was at the start of the month! I might also have a blog with enough content to bother reading.

Yayyak: What IRC channels/servers do you frequent?
I can't say I've ever seen you on there... granted, I rarely stray outside of #blitzcoder.

I play the guitar, but I don't have a good microphone. I'll definitely have to get one and record something

@Nolan: irc://irc.fuseirc.net/#main mostly. I am a member of blitzed.org, but I don't enjoy the company of a few people there. I'm also sometimes on freenode, in ##c, but not very often.

I play the piano (currently learning 'Dr Who'), and I also once tried growing mushrooms in my room (although I did infest my room with a swarm of fungi gnats in the process...). I'm also OK with electronics.

A mushroom a day keeps the doctor away...

He... I have been thinking to starting a bit of coding perhaps...haven't done any in a while... bit busier nowadays with a more active social life!

I'm a fairly good artist with both drawing and pixel art. Here's some pixel art I just cooked up. I especially love to do isometric pixel art.

As I now understand exactly how to make an origami crane, I can't remember if this is the brilliant site which explains it perfectly, or the terrible site I looked it which should never be used.

I couldn't see the other site I used, Google has lost it. But it is pretty easy. If I had a camera, I'd make an article on it.

Yea, I based it off something I saw, I just didn't know the name or the piece of who made it.

i fix stuff. i am the resident fixer for my family.

i am also a music freak, gamer and general nerd. i can also eat food like a blackhole eats matter. and then i am good at framing, wiring, etc. i also build and fix up PCs.

and i am the argument ender for my friends, i usually tell them to shut up and sort out the ordeal and tell them to deal with it. sometimes i have to give up a drink since whenever brother and sister fights happen it is usually about one of them hording the drinks. but it is worth it to have some peace and quiet to play my games

Well, I've been working on writing more. I've started writing a tutorial series on how to write an operating system (not for beginners ). Should keep me busy for a while.

Oh yeah! I'm a mason in training. I've got a very lovely sidewalk I've been working on. Maybe it'll be finished by the end of the month.
