In this session, Jon Linklater-Johnson
will be teaching us all how to draw, using the Canvas element
, which is part of the HTML5
suite of new web technologies.
Jon will cover almost everything you need to know about the Canvas API, with a look at Processing.js
and maybe one or two of the other drawing frameworks. We'll look at why SVG
might sometimes be a better for your project and how Raphaël.js can help. Finishing up with some demos of the crazy cool stuff that people have built and how they did it.
After living in Cornwall for a few years where he worked on websites for the BBC, Teenage Cancer Trust and the Eden Project, Jon Linklater-Johnson
recently moved to Brighton to undertake an internship at Clearleft
