Workshop: Creative JavaScript and HTML 5

A session at beyond tellerrand 2011

Sunday 20th November, 2011

9:00am to 5:00pm (CET)

Over the last few months, creative coder extraordinaire Seb Lee-Delisle has been inspiring programmers worldwide in the art of creative coding with JavaScript and HTML5.

His workshops in the USA sold out within hours and now he's coming home for this special one day introductory version of this course.

WHAT WILL YOU GET FROM THIS WORKSHOP?

The workshop will start off with the basics of rendering into an HTML5 canvas, and animating simple objects.

We will then learn that physics simulations don't need to be rocket science. And what better way to use physics than to make a particle system with sparks, smoke and explosions?

The HTML5 canvas API will be covered, and we will learn how to use some lesser known aspects of it to create generative artwork.

The workshop will also examine the differences between using canvas, and DOM elements to help choose which one is right for us.

Finally we will explore some techniques that will help us towards building a simple JavaScript game.

WHAT PREREQUISITE SKILLS DO YOU NEED?

The examples start off very simply and gradually get more complex. So whether you're just starting out in JavaScript or if you're a more experienced coder, you'll still get a lot out of the training.

WHAT HARDWARE / SOFTWARE DO YOU NEED?

  • Laptop
  • Any modern browser
  • (ideally Chrome or Chromium)
  • Text editor of your choice
  • (Seb favours TextMate)
