Creative Code Review

Hi and welcome!

Creative Code Review is a group for people who enjoy creative coding and want to learn from others by participating in code reviews. We host online events where members can present recent projects and talk about the decisions and challenges in building their projects.

What We Do

Creative Code Review started in May 2020. The aim is to hold events for people who enjoy creative coding and want to participate in code reviews.

Creative Code is intended to be an open, inclusive, supportive, constructive, friendly and informal environment.

An ideal result of participating in a code review here will be that you learn something, build a greater sense of community and hopefully get that great feeling of having helping someone else!

You do not need to be an expert to participate but we’re also not going to be teaching programming 101. It helps to be familiar enough with coding concepts (functions, variables) so that you can follow along. If you're on the fence and think you might not know enough then come anyway. Don't let your imposter syndrome or other worries keep you from learning!

Bottom line, if you’re not sure about participating then definitely join in and see what you think. The more the merrier.

Boilerplate starter files for P5js and Processing

Where to find more people to join in?
Some questions and discussion about this format for meeting up and about where to find some new people to join in the fun!

We will be hosting the next meeting before the end of the year and if we're really lucky we'll somehow manage to get two meetings in!!??!

Stay tuned. We'll post the next date here as well as on our Twitters
