Come and learn how to draw, animate, and create truly interactive content, including advanced mouse interactions, pixel manipulation, image blending, physics, 3D and games.
During the two days of this hands-on training, we’ll be working through a series of specially created examples that demonstrate the techniques for drawing and animating with code.
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 having to learn rocket science. And what better way to use physics than to make a particle system with sparks, smoke and explosions?
Working in two dimensions is fun but three is better! We’ll demystify 3D rendering by creating our own simple 3D system. And then move on to more complex examples using Mr.doob’s three.js library. We’ll also examine the differences between using canvas, DOM and SVG graphics to learn how to choose which one is right for us.
Finally we’ll explore how we can use these new found skills to make games.
“I have been going full speed ahead with Creative JS ever since I got back from your training! I was definitely exposed to a lot of new concepts, gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and overall felt like it was one of the best learning experiences that I have ever had. I highly recommend your training” - Cory Hudson, Creative Director AOL
