I’ve been revamping 100 years of Guardian articles, a project that’s been in the works since October 2013, or 1899 if we’re being really accurate. The articles show how we reported the 20th century, from the Boer War to “unstoppable rise of Microsoft”. 
If history is your thing, the archive team are also republishing a selection of articles on the first world war.

  4. Java Moire Pattern

    I’ve never used any of the Java graphics APIs before. What better way to get started than to create a very simple program that creates a moire pattern and writes that moire pattern to a file ( a PNG file).

    package com.bearsbreeches;
    import javax.imageio.ImageIO;

    import java.io.IOException;
