Overview

It wasn’t long ago that if you wanted to do some creative coding, Flash was your tool of choice. In 2013 things are different. Flash has faded from it’s former glory and numerous other options have sprung up to meet all kinds of needs. From code frameworks like Processing, openFrameworks and Cinder to visual tools like TouchDesigner there are a plethora of choices. Back in the browser Javascript, CSS and HTML are now capable of things we never could have imagined them doing a decade ago and of course they aren’t constrained to desktop computers anymore either.
Where does this leave you, the developer looking to broaden your skills or the designer who wants to bring some interactivity to your creations? Attend this session and be taken on a tour of the creative coding landscape where you’ll see what the code looks like, learn what tools you’ll need and see samples of the kinds of project each platform excels at.
If you are new to creative coding this session is for you.
