Creative Coding - Beyond the Basics
Workshop — 17 Mar 2021
Location: K.02.04 — 9:30-13:00
This course is for everyone who wants to continue their journey with creative coding. To get better, you’ll need to understand concepts like lists and objects, and how they apply to creative coding.
Again this will be a very hands-on, visual introduction to coding; we’ll create a number of small practical apps that demonstrate why we need lists and objects: a fun typing game; a moodboard maker that talks to Unsplash to get images; a drawing app that can animate our squiggles.
All our projects will run on the web. We’ll extend our knowledge of p5.js and our general knowledge of coding.
- Understand the basic tools for managing data: lists and objects.
- Use lists of objects to organise your projects.
- Get external data through JSON.
This course assumes you’ve followed the Creative Coding Basics course, or are somewhat familiar with the basics of p5.js and coding, like variables, loops and conditions. We’ll work with Visual Studio Code and Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
