Event Details

If you want to build data visualizations, games or generative art then this is the class for you. We'll start with the basic API to create rectangles, circles, lines and text. Then we'll tweak compositing settings and learn how to use requestAnimationFrame for smart animating. We will touch upon the difference between Canvas and HTML/SVG/WebGL so that you know when to use the right technology. By the end of the class you will learn how to draw on the web using HTML5 Canvas and JavaScript.

Psst: though we won't be using any libraries for this class, a general understanding of HTML and JavaScript is recommended to make the most out of it.
