Codex Design Foundations is a series of friendly, guided, hands-on coding experiences intersecting basic design principles and fundamental computer programming concepts for beginners. Participants play and experiment with the relationships and behaviors of form, pattern, space, color, sequence, text, data and interaction, using introductory level computer programming concepts. All faculty and staff are invited to participate in the workshop, hosted by Teaching Commons.
This workshop also includes contextual and cultural overviews of different computer programming languages and their particular attributes and applications; the meaning of creative coding; examples of art and design projects using code to express, reveal, and disrupt; and resources for going further with the material introduced. This workshop uses the Processing programming language, a free and open-source language appropriate for beginners.
