You can read Hamming's own perspective on his discovery of these codes in chapter 12 of "The Art of Doing Science and Engineering".

These animations are largely made using manim, a scrappy open-source python library: https://github.com/3b1b/manim

If you want to check it out, I feel compelled to warn you that it's not the most well-documented tool, and it has many other quirks you might expect in a library someone wrote with only their own use in mind.
