English description

Did you ever wish to design an app for your iPhone? Or do you have an idea for this nice creative coding experience on your iPad? Do you have a new Android Tablet and want to make something cool with it? This is your chance!

We will work with the latest cross-platform HTML5 web technologies (mainly the ECMA scripting language, better known as JavaScript; including CSS3) to create applications that will run on your mobile device.

Topics will be:

  • Creative Coding on mobile devices
  • Introduction to Programming
    • Variables
    • Functions / Methods
    • Objects
    • Events
    • Best practices and Software Design Patterns (Accessors: Getters/Setters, Creating Objects, Modules…)
  • ECMA Script (JavaScript)
  • CSS3 (Design, Animation, Transition…)
  • HTML5 (Multitouch, Geolocation, Device Orientation, Local Storage, Canvas, WebAudio, SVG...)
  • JavaScript Libraries (Processing.js, Paper.js, D3.js, jQuery Mobile and many more…)
  • Webapps and Hybrid Apps (that's a webApp that is wrapped in a native application that you can download from an app store)

This course will most likely be held in English
