PicoTurtle Java program to draw a groovy tunnel

I've also added Java support to picoturtle. Here's a program to draw a rather groovy tunnel. Java code follows.

import in.abhishekmishra.picoturtle.TurtleState;

public class Tunnel
{
    public static void cuboid(Turtle t, double b, double w, double h) {
        t.forward(b);

PicoTurtle C# program to draw a wave

Recently I added C# .NET support to picoturtle. I was playing around generating waves... here's an example based on the sine function. And the C# Turtle code follows below.

    class MainClass
    {
        public static void Main(string[] args)

So I've had to fallback on installing ubuntu on virtualbox, with docker and gcloud-sdk. I've documented the steps …

Exploring turtle graphics

This week I started exploring turtle graphics with my son as he is very interested in drawing and crafts (he calls his room "art room"). We wrote one program together in python's turtle graphics library. It's here - face.py , and this is what it looks like :)
