Using numbers and formulas, random factors, and creativity to generate artwork. No graphic design software is used at all, only code. This is a good way to learn the basic moving parts of software development, and what is created can be infinitely explored. Changing a number or a structure in one place can generate a completely different result each time. So, it's not just about boosting intelectual skills, but also about developing the creative side. As a bonus, programming also helps developing many soft skills than can be applied everywhere in life, such as problem solving, logic and pragmatic decisions, simplification and optimization, critical thinking, and also teamwork.
Ideal for designers, for anyone who works or collaborates with software developers, for kids, for parents, or for anyone with a curious mind. If you want to learn the basics of software development but don't know where to start from, this is your opportunity to learn it in a simple and fun way without any previous experience needed.
Optimized for kids from 7 years old, but ideal for anyone, any age
You will learn a lot, but no previous experience required
In English and Chinese (or mixed), depending on each group
This is a bring-your-own-laptop workshop (Windows/Mac computer, no tablets)
本研讨会需要自己携带笔记本电脑 （Windows / Mac计算机）
Workshop starts at 9am and ends at 6pm, total training time is 8 hours
One hour lunch break and some short breaks (lunch / snacks included)
Real coding, real tools, no SCRATCH, BLOCKLY or other “fake coding” nonsense
No lectures, no Powerpoints, no boring stuff, lots of challenges and activities
The concepts you learn apply to any computer programming language
No one is left behind, the group moves at its own pace together, until everyone understands all the needed concepts. All needed software and files provided, just bring your own laptop. The generative art app you build is yours to keep and continue to explore on your own.
FERNANDO is the CEO of COLACO TECH (THIS WORKSHOP VENUE), WHERE HE AND HIS TEAM BUILD AND DESIGN ALL KINDS OF MOBILE AND DESKTOP APPS FOR ANY PLATFORM, INTERACTIVE WEBSITES, AND ALL KINDS OF PROJECTS INVOLVING CREATIVITY OR TECHNOLOGY, IN BEIJING SANLITUN
MORE THAN 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN PROFESSIONAL SOFTWARE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
STARTED TO EXPLORE CODING WHEN HE WAS 14 YEARS OLD, STARTING PROFESSIONAL WORK AT 18 IN PORTUGAL (WHERE HE WAS BORN). AFTER THAT, HIS CAREER MOVED ALONG THROUGH SWITZERLAND, THE NETHERLANDS, THE UNITED KINGDOM, GERMANY AND A TOTAL OF 24 COUNTRIES, UNTIL HE DECIDED TO SETTLE IN CHINA 8 YEARS AGO
THIS WORKSHOP, AND A FEW OTHER WORKSHOPS WITH TOTAL BEGINNERS IN MIND, TOURED THROUGH ALL THOSE COUNTRIES FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS, WHILE CONTINUOUSLY UPDATED, SINCE TECHNOLOGY KEEPS EVOLVING
“Learning how to code is not only a technical skill, but also a creative one, since it gives anyone the power to make their own ideas take shape. Everyone can learn it, and the most common obstacle is to know where and how to start. You don’t need an engineering degree to learn how to code. If you can learn how to add, subtract and multiply, if you can learn the basics of a new spoken language, learning how to code is not much different. Such as playing a new musical instrument or a new sport, you just need to start, practice and explore. I created this workshop for that to happen smoothly and for anyone with a curious mind to be able to start from scratch.”
