Love this video! For some reason I get overly-goofy when it comes to Dijkstra and A*.

I really need to stop being lazy and post up the game grid web component I'm playing with, which uses Dijkstra to returns all locations reachable by a character considering terrain.

Thank you for the videos! More, please ;-)

 

I love that pencil and paper quote ✍️

 

These are great! Love the concise way you explain things 💯

 

This is great, love the sound effects. :D

Thanks!!

 

Props for using a canning jar as a drinking vessel. I do the same!

 

3:37 -- My favorite part of the video. :-)
