Training Creative Coding & Data artwork in the browserGet a glimpse of making data-driven art, interactive websites, real-time animations, and generative designs using code, algorithms, and public datasets. This workshop gently introduces you to the concepts behind creative coding, data visualization and interaction design. Learn how to use Glitch, p5.js, and the browser as a starting point for a web-based project that can be shared online.
ContentThe following topics will be covered:
- a warm-up exercise on algoritmic drawing
- an introduction to Glitch
- an introduction to P5.js
- how to draw (data)shapes and patterns with code
- You will need a laptop with a modern browser like Chrome or FireFox
- Basic knowledge of coding will help (for example understanding variables or loops) but isn’t absolutely necessary
