Creative JS for non-coders
Creative JS for non-coders

Designers and artists can make the best creative coders, but coding can seem scary. This course is aimed at people with no coding experience at all, and want to learn JavaScript for the web.

Lighthouse is pleased to be hosting this course for non-coders taught by Seb Lee-Delisle as part of Brighton Digital Festival 2012.

“I’d always had a bit of a mental block about JavaScript, but that’s well and truly gone after Seb’s course. And it was great fun too.” – Bruce Lawson, Author “Introducing HTML5”

This workshop is different – every concept and principle we learn about is visual. We learn about variables by changing the position of rectangles. We learn about loops by making multiple shapes on the screen. Arrays and animation with particle systems, and logic and objects with a simple game engine. Most of the examples will be using canvas, and by the end of the workshop, you’ll be amazed at your experiments and be well on your way to become an accomplished creative coder.

No coding experience is required. None! If you’ve done a bit of HTML or CSS that’ll probably be helpful though. It’s going to be a relaxed, friendly environment where you are free to learn and experiment within a small class size.

Seb Lee-Delisle is a creative coder, speaker and teacher, working across platforms including JavaScript, Processing and openFrameworks. He works to bring people together with large scale installations like PixelPhones, interactive firework displays or glow-stick voting systems.

Date: 24-25 September 2012

Venue: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, Brighton, BN1 4AJ
