p5jsUsing Javascript to animate for the web!

What is code, and how do we write it?  Writing code and software is all too often shrouded in mystery as if only the highly educated or super nerdy can do it. This class is intended to help move away from that mindset and empower you to learn this highly relevant skill.

This class will use p5.js, a programming language derived from Javascript (the second most used programming language in the world) and an excellent tool to learn real-life programming skills. We will work on coding animations and audio/visual experiences for the web, creating simple and beautiful sketches.

3 classes, 3 hours each, where students who are brand new or are just starting out learning web development basics can get their hands around core concepts to build an interactive and mobile-friendly web page. Throughout the course, we will learn the fundamentals of the web, including how the web works, and dive into HTMLCSS, version control with Git and Github, and JavaScript basics.

Attendees will come away with a fully functioning web site hosted on the internet that is mobile friendly, allows for creativity, as well as displays the participant’s understanding of core web technologies. These new skills can be applied to many existing jobs, creative endeavors, or serve as a launching point for a deeper dive into software development.
