The Art of Creative Coding

Video of the Day: The Art of Creative Coding

Coding is a jumble of number and symbols — but that doesn't mean it can't be beautiful. The Art of Creative Coding, which originally aired on PBS, explores how programming has gone beyond utility and become an art form.

Artists use programming languages to create interactive displays and exhibits, pushing the limits of what is possible in computer programs. The new art form is called "creative coding" and is made accessible through open-source platforms and libraries that help artists "skip the nitty gritty" of coding and focus on artistry. Does this video inspire you to get coding?
