Coding for Visual Learners: Learning JavaScript with p5.js

At this age and time that we live in, coding is simply invaluable. It has the power to uplift your career, your future prospects and even your intellectual capacity. Computation is driving one of the largest capital expansions in history and there has never been a better time to learn coding than now. Learning how to code can be challenging. It is hard to find good resources that are relevant, practical and engaging at the same time. This book teaches coding from scratch using the vastly popular programming language JavaScript. Using JavaScript and a library called p5.js, you will learn how to code in a highly engaging and visual manner.The emphasis of this book will be primarily on learning programming using JavaScript and p5.js and secondarily in creating visuals. The main focus is to teach you how to program so that you can choose to pursue whatever field that you would like with your newly established skill set. The skills that you will acquire from this book are highly transferrable and could be used whatever you choose to build; whether web applications, programmable robots or generative art. This means that I will provide you with enough context so that you can build a strong foundation for programming. But I also won’t hinder our momentum with irrelevant technical or theoretical points. The aim is to build a strong but a minimum viable knowledge to get you running with coding. This is the book that I wished I had available when I was learning coding myself.If you are an artist or a visual designer this book is perfect for you as you might find the examples we will be building to be directly relevant to your work. If not, this is still a great book for learning programming as the visual nature of the exercises will help you grasp the fundamentals of programming easier and let you build a strong foundation in a shorter amount of time.You can find more information about the book at:
