Overview

Doing things with WebGL, really? Not long ago it was a niche playground for people with a spirit of discovery, this… and nerds. Now it’s strongly catching up, beginning to be everybody’s darling and en vogue.

Frank’s talk focuses on WebGL and HTML5-based creative coding. Bringing colour to that former grey area, using many techniques and concepts to discover beautiful forms, systems, fractals and aberrations – all under the premise to gain maximum performance when it comes to your favourite browser. He’ll pull the curtain aside to show the how, why and what.

Prospectors, throw away your pick, it’s time to get shit done with this new weapon of choice.
