We will be doing in-class programming exercises almost every class session, so please bring a laptop to class. If this is a problem, talk to Prof. Nelson.
You will need to download and install a copy of the p5.js editor on your laptop and/or home computer.
If you are relatively new to programming, I recommend working through videos 1.X through 6.X of Dan Schiffman's p5js tutorial videos.
I will provide lots of course-specific tutorials and examples in class to help you get started.
Here are links to some of the most common p5.js functions:
Using jsbin.com IDE (Integrated Development Environment)
The online jsbin.com environment can be used to develop project code, similar to the p5.js editor. We will use jsbin.com for homework submissions.
