There's been many requests to do another workshop for the people who couldn't attend the first. So here goes....


Learn to create generative and sound reactive art in pure Javascript.

We'll look at using canvas to create audio visual art. I'll show you my process, and then we'll get down to building our own particle system.

Some knowledge in JS and HTML would be a serious advantage.


Creative Coding Workshop Requirements:


Chrome Browser You’ll need to have the latest version of Chrome installed

Development Text Editor You need to install a text editor. I recommend Atom: A good alternative to Atom is Sublime: (but really, Atom is great)

Live Server: This is going to make your life so much easier and coding so much faster and fun. For Atom, simply go Preferences->Packages and search and install Live Server For maximum happiness make sure your default browser is Chrome.

A basic understanding of the web and HTML: Again, not really needed, but will go a long way in helping you get more out of the course and make better art.

Here’s two helpful guides:

Also a basic primer in colours:

This is a very very helpful Javascript creative coding primer:
