Overview

In Creative Coding 3 students will build on the programming skills they learned in Creative Coding 2 and begin applying these skills to larger and more complex projects. The projects cover a wide range of visual, interactive, and algorithmic elements that students can recombine into useful apps, including custom buttons and sliders, instantiating multiple copies of objects, managing large numbers of variables in data structures, and writing readable and reusable code. After completing this course, students will know everything they need to begin creating unique, publishable artifacts in JavaScript: apps, games, and simulations.

During this course, you will learn career-related skills and earn a badge for this accomplishment. A badge is a digital certification of your career-related learning that you can share on social media and higher education platforms, or with colleges, potential employers, peers, and colleagues.
