Kjetil Golid

Half-day workshop - in English

Creative programming is all about writing code to create an expression rather than developing functionality. It can be used to generate all kinds of art pieces, whether it be still images, animations, music etc. It is also a great framework for learning new programming languages!

We’ll show you how to create art in the browser using functional programming.
Kicking things off with a low-key introduction to Clojurescript, we familiarize ourselves with some lisp syntax and general functional programming concepts before venturing into the realm of generative art created in the web browser.

Primarily for: Developers, Tester/test leads, UX specialists, Designers

Participant requirements: Bring your own laptop. We will install the whole setup at the start of the workshop.
