CreativeJS – beauty in the browser by Seb Lee-Delisle

Now that Canvas and SVG are available natively in all major browsers, JavaScript developers have much to learn about creative visual programming. From particle systems to blending effects, optimised animations, gaming and good old maths creativity, Seb Lee-Delisle (@seb_ly) has more than a trick or two to share with us. If you’re interested in bringing a little visceral beauty to your websites, apps and games, then this is the session for you.

    Sebs demo was like being back in your high school science class if your teacher had been a combination of Mr. Wizard, Richard Feynman and Eddy Izzard.Really funny and just the stuff to make you wish you were Non billable again so you could spend the next week or so making cool $h!t in your browser.

    Great insights into making artistic use of JavaScript. I liked that Seb kept the session fun-filled and had a good step-by-step walk-through of the code.
