This two-day workshop is for everyone who wants to get a taste of creating designs programmatically with the Python programming language. You’ll work with DrawBot, a free and friendly environment that will give you instant visual feedback. The basics of Python will be covered, and you will learn how to use Python to create high-quality vector-based output. We’ll start with programming vector shapes and we’ll end up with an overview of all the advanced (typographic) possibilities of DrawBot, which includes creating complex shapes and control of OpenType features. For added fun, you will learn how to make simply programmed animations, and export them as animated gifs.
