During a paired programming challenge, me and my partner built a drawing app using HTML canvas, JS, and Socket IO. This is a fun app that you can collaborate with your friends on and create a masterpiece. I really enjoyed building a resource to help bring creative minds together. This app was also a very fun project to learn how to use Socket IO.
Challenges One of the biggest challenges we faced in the project was getting the color picker to work properly. The color picker was putting out color in rgb format with a lot of decimals, and we had to convert it to HEX color.
Another challenge that we faced was getting the brush on the screen to become a smooth solid line. To render the paint brush we had to create ellipses, and then connect the ellipses with a line.
