A “Hello, World!” program is a computer program that outputs or displays “Hello, World!” to a user. Being a very simple program in most programming languages, it is often used to illustrate the basic syntax of a programming language for a working program. It is often the very first program people write when they are new to a language.
For our “Hello World” assignment in p5.js, we’ll be creating some basic visual output and putting it on the screen. As p5 is meant for visual display, we’ll create a few primitive shapes and add them to the canvas.
- Task: Take the “Hello World” sketch that we created in class and extend it. Play with color, shape, images or text elements to create a visually striking piece. Be prepared to show the class how you’ve extended the sketch.
- Task: Write a short blog post in using markdown on at least two additional pieces that you’re interested in. What drew you to them? What do you find interesting about them? How are users expected to interact with the pieces? Download a few pictures of each piece and include links. No more than a paragraph for each piece. Put this post on GitHub
