This month Paweł Widera will show us how to turn our computers into an artist.
Starting from the basic concepts Paweł will teach you how to make pretty graphics with code. With a few lines of code you will draw complex shapes, play with colours and even interact with the drawing using mouse or keyboard. When you familiar with the basics, we will generate some cool art with image composition and agent-based procedural animation.
To fully participate, please bring in your own laptop. There would be many example programs to run and a related dojo style challenge at the end! If you are a Python beginner, don't worry, you will be fine most of the time and we will be happy to help you if you stuck :)
If you want to get ahead of the game you an install the requirements: http://pyglet.org/download.html
and install pyprocessing via pip:
pip install pyprocessing
