5 The Cyclic Vacuum Cannon is a curiosity that I've been wanting to build for a while. Its a whimsical fantasy engine/gun that steals objects from elsewhere in the universe then spits them out to propel itself forward or blast its enemies.

15 ###Episode 1: Brainstorming -> [Watch Screencast](https://vimeo.com/48454761 "CVC - Brainstorming on Vimeo")###
16 In this episode I break a concept drawing of the Cyclic Vacuum Cannon into its constituent parts, take a first crack at naming them, and think out loud about their responsibilities & relationships. Starting a project this way helps me get a better understanding of what I'm in for, and to decide where to start building.

19 In this episode I do the setup dirty work that's necessary before we can get to the fun stuff:
20 - Create an open source repo here at GitHub
21 - Briefly introduce my choice of tools
22 - Craft a workspace & workflow to use as we move forward.

31 ##About Presstube Code Journal##
32 I love watching people work. It's one of my favorite ways to learn. In case there's anyone out there who feels the same way I decided to start a code journal where I'd step through the creation of a project from the pre-code planning phase, all the way through to launching it in its finished state.
33
34 I plan to release each journal entry as a short, 10-15min, screencast. Each entry will correspond to a branch in this repo so you can follow along, and/or take the project in a direction I never would have thought of.
35
36 I have three different groups of people in mind while making this journal:
37
38 1. Like-minded coders who might find it interesting to peer over my shoulder as I work.
39 2. Those who are a lot better at all this stuff than I am who might be able to point me in the right direction about how to improve, and/or chuckle at my ineptitude.
40 3. People who may never have coded before but are curious about it and want to see what it's all about in the context of a fun, silly, highly visual project.
