Workshop: Creative Coding for Beginners


Experiment with coding in this introductory eight-week course for beginners

Together with tutors Rich Cochrane and Andrew McGettigan, learn to use Unity 3D to explore the potential intersections of coding, digital 3D environments, data and photography, and open up new creative possibilities for your own practice. This course provides photographers and artists with a practical grounding in creating 3D virtual environments and interactions.

Unity 3D is a popular, free programme widely used in the videogaming industry that has also been used in immersive artworks, architectural visualizations, animations, CGI and other creative applications outside gaming. It works equally well on a Mac or PC; a reasonably modern laptop is advisable as 3D rendering does make some demands on the hardware.

We will do some basic coding but no prior programming experience is necessary; in fact, this is a gentle way to encounter coding for the first time. You’re encouraged to bring your own visual work (digital photographs, jpgs etc.) as source material to experiment with. The skills you pick up from this course can easily be extended into Virtual or Augmented Reality applications if you have access to suitable hardware.

Unity is a free, cross-platform game engine. Each week you will learn fundamental principles common to other programming languages, including C#, C++, Boo, Javascript or Python. No prior coding experience is required.
