With a strong focus on creating interactive experiences for the web, the course moves past the sequential problem solving found in typical beginner programming and coding courses, so that designers and creatives can apply programming concepts to work in a variety of media, such as 2D graphics, animation, image and video processing. By the end of this course, students will be able to read and write javascript for creative and design applications. Whether you are a graphic designer, UX/UI designer, web designer, or accessibility designer, this course will arm you with fundamental coding skills using javascript and other languages as a method of expression.

This course is part of the Integrated Digital Media MicroMasters Program.
