JavaScript Graphics and Animation

Wednesday 29 March 2017

  • 09:00-17:00
  • The King's Centre, Oxford

This workshop will help you to create truly beautiful visual effects with JavaScript and HTML5. Learn how to draw, animate, and create engaging interactive content, with advanced mouse interactions, pixel manipulation, image blending, physics and games.

If you’ve ever wondered how the wonderful things on CodePen were created then this workshop is for you!

We’ll start off with the basics of rendering into an HTML5 canvas, and animating simple objects with tweening, realtime easing and sequencing. We’ll then learn how to simulate physics without rocket science. And what better way to use physics than to make a particle system with sparks, smoke and explosions? Then we’ll explore how we can use these newfound skills to make interactive animations and games.

These courses work equally well for programmers and designers, of varying levels of experience.
