   Hi to all,

During the last weeks of lock-down here the field of of fractals became a new hobby :  my primary interest being the 'mathematical brainteaser' aspect and the challenge to write my own code.(I had only a very basic knowledge of the Mandelbrot set). This keeps more your neurons alive than being in front of TV!

This forums has been an invaluable source of both theoretical knowledge and artistic inspiration - together with wikipedia and the personal blogs of some key contributors here. A warm thank you to make such great material freely available.
My coding attempt somehow grew out of control and my small program now has ~2k lines (python/numpy), but it does produce some images I find interesting and aesthetically pleasing. I would be happy to share code / tips / tricks if this experience can somehow be useful to other people - do not hesitate to contact.

Cheers
Geoffroy.

That is, in my opinion, one of the best ways of truly caring for a project. :)

Welcome!

oh just you wait, there is another 10k lines of code waiting to work it's way into your program, you just can't see them yet, kind of like the fractals themselves a fractal program is never truly finished.

Welcome to the rabbit hole :D

It's true... my subroutines are spawning subroutines...

I think I've seen some of your posts already, gby. I look forward to seeing more!
