House of Dance Be'er Sheva – SOL Dance Company
George – The Runner's Turn
by Eyal Dadon
Two definitions, a fact and a sentence:
Definition number 1: A loop is a programming technique used for flow control, it performs a routine numerous times, according to the code it uses and according to the programmer's command, hence its name: a loop that repeats itself.
Definition number 2: A loop without a stop, or a pause in which it never exists is called an infinite loop, it can usually be formed due to a bug which often creates an error.
Fact: Software programming is based on the imagination of the human brain.
Sentence: ״Everyone thinks that playing a video game is fun and light, my point of view is that it really hurts. On the other hand, reality stands in front of us, which is an amusing fact" – Nissim Gutman
