Learn Front-End Game Coding with Pixi
This workshop will introduce you to the Pixi JavaScript library for creating browser-based games. You'll code a classic breakout-style game from scratch using the Pixi API and JavaScript. You'll also see how to organize your Pixi-based JavaScript through closures.

Pixi uses WebGL or HTML5 Canvas under the covers depending on your device, freeing you from the need to learn either, but its API leverages all the same concepts in order to provide the best performance.

Workshop attendees will need to provide their own computer with Chrome web browser installed.

Angular or React? Neither - Use Vue.js!
This workshop will introduce you to Vue.js - a JavaScript library for building HTML UIs from JSON data in a lightweight but powerful manner. Much less heavy than Angular or React, Vue.js takes a more jQuery-like approach in providing you the tools to get the job done quickly and easily without taking over your entire code architecture. You'll build a front-end using the free Yelp APIs as you learn to consume the JSON with Vue.js and build your front-end.

Workshop attendees will need to provide their own computer with Chrome web browser installed.
