Starfield Programming in JavaScript

I did not realize how coding tutorials on YouTube are sometimes annoying - including my own (no exception 😄), don't get me wrong, I mean it's great to be taught and all but often it's just annoying, you want to watch someone coding in silence and code with them, especially if you're familiar with the language/framework/tech they're using in the video.

This is an HTML/CSS/JavaScript moving background ideal for any space 2d video game like Space Invaders, Galaxy Hunters or Asteroids, coded from scratch in silence in a rainy night here in Poland, and I did not want to talk just code in silence and if you're a beginner - intermediate, you can code along with me or you can leave it turned on while doing your own stuff.

The idea was inspired from one famous YouTuber called Takuya and his channel is called "devaslife", he's a Japanese from Osaka who speaks perfect English. The man types in a very smooth way on the terminal - he uses Fish terminal - and never touches the mouse in all of his videos; productive and efficient. I was only inspired by him, and started creating my own videos with my own style, just occasionally not being the main style on the channel.

You might find me struggling while typing a little bit, that's because this was my first time suing this new IBM Compatible Keyboard manufactured by a German company called "Perrix".

Here's the video
Hope you enjoy it - if you like that type of videos
