Creative Coding (or Sometimes It’s Alright to Write Rubbish Code)¬†looks at the role of coding within in the emerging field of experiential advertising and interactive installations, using examples from projects I have been involved in (including work for international tech start-up company Makelight Limited).

Topics:

  • Why a high-tech approach is needed to engage the public
  • The relationship between creative and commercial coding and how the two are often intertwined within a project
  • The importance of code quality and scalability for one-off installations and large commercial creative products
  • The challenges of a 24-hour work cycle (New Zealand/London) and tight deadlines
  • The art of quick code iteration for prototyping
