Two full days of creative JavaScript and HTML5 training. Very limited tickets to ensure a great atmosphere and focussed attention. Over the last few months, creative coder extraordinaire Seb Lee-Delisle has been inspiring a whole new audience in the art of creative coding with JavaScript and HTML5. Just look back at the #creativejs hashtag on twitter to see how the alumni are continuing to use their new found skills in ever more exciting ways. What will be coveredWe’ll start off with the basics of rendering into an HTML5 canvas, and animating simple objects. We'll then learn that physics simulations don't need to be rocket science. And what better way to use physics than to make a particle system with sparks, smoke and explosions?Working in two dimensions is one thing but three is one better! We'll demystify 3D rendering by creating our own simple 3D system. And then move on to more complex examples using three.js library from Mr.doob and his team.We’ll also examine the differences between using canvas, and DOM elements to help choose which one is right for us.Finally we'll use these new found abilities to make a simple game.Who is it for?This course is for front end developers who want to explore visual interactive possibilities in JavaScript, CSS and HTML5.
