Details

We are super excited to announce Nannou - An Open Source Creative Coding Framework for the Rust Programming Language!

http://nannou.cc/news/hello-nannou/

As lovers of the high-performance, bullet-proof Rust language and creative coding frameworks like OpenFrameworks and Processing we felt it was about time to merge the benefits of the two while attempting to apply some of the lessons learned by these predecessors.

Today marks the milestone where we feel we are ready to share it with the wider world and start the journey of growing a community of techy artists and creative hackers alike. Join us!

For the eager folk who would like to skip the post and jump straight into the code and examples, here's the git repo:

Day 2. Create With Nannou

- Demonstrate how to navigate the Nannou and wider Rust ecosystem. E.g. demonstrate where to search for and find packages, how to find and use the auto-generated documentation site, etc.
- Make some sketches together! We will step through several tasks with challenges for all skill levels. For each task we will walk around the room and help folks who have questions or would like some help one-on-one. By the end of the day each attendee should have something that they were able to create with Nannou, and feel comfortable with playing and exploring further on their own :)
