Creative Coding in P5.js

Sun Sep 10, 13:00 - Sun Sep 10, 17:00
Tshimologong Precinct


This workshop will cover the basics of creative coding in a JavaScript-based language called p5.js. What is creative coding? How can coding be used to express yourself artistically?
Participants will get a sneak preview of soon-to-be-released p5.js web editor and the opportunity to make their first drawings and animations with code.
The workshop is open to beginners (creative coding is a wonderful way to first learn how to code!). More advanced tools and techniques of p5.js will be introduced to those with previous coding experience.

Workshop Requirements:
Some coding experience (in any language) is helpful, but not required. The only requirement is the willingness to try something new and a little creativity.
Computers are available, but feel free to bring your own laptops (wifi access required).
