- Mission Statement
Creative coding describes a development method of programming and design that opens up many new opportunities within the production of multimedia applications. Boundaries between design, production and the actual software product are eliminated by the iterative process of creative coding.
• Theoretical foundations of object-oriented programming • Methods and strategies of generative design• Identification of development environments for generative design
- Learning Outcomes
The students are able to independently realize generative design projects by referring to concepts of object-oriented programming.
By constantly applying programming principles and concepts, students are able to integrate these into their generative design practice and to handle these intuitively.
Instrumental Skills and Competences
Students are capable to develop of complex generative design challenges by using diverse and constantly changing technical tools and development environments. They can master these in short term, relying on a sound knowledge of programming concepts.
Communicative Skills and Competences
The students are able to present their ideas, concepts and works in writing and pictures as well as rhetorically.
Systemic Skills and Competences
The students have acquired distinct skills, to define fields of application for a generative design methods and implement it.
