Overview

In Creative Coding, students are introduced to object-oriented programming concepts, moving past the sequential problem solving found in typical beginner programming classes to use the computer as a creative medium for art, games, and graphic design. This introductory course will introduce you to a variety of concepts in programming, and how they can be applied creatively to work in a variety of media, such as 2D graphics, animation, image and video processing. A strong focus will be on creating interactive experiences for the web. By the end of this course, students will be empowered to read and write javascript for creative applications. This is reinforced through weekly assignments and a midterm and final project that leverage the skills learned in the course

Lectures are very simple and cover only basic concepts. All practice in homework, access to them is paid and costs $ 250, living in a third world country I am disappointed, I do not have that kind of money.
