openFrameworks is a fantastic platform for creating interesting works with code. But there is a lack of viable & clear tutorials. This is where this series steps in.
The series is for beginners, but also great for people to brush up skills & re-learn. Rather than being videos that branch into too many things, these are short & bite sized - to be easier & much better to take in & what they need to learn. Each episode has its own dedicated topic, for images, sound, audio & even UI elements.
We will start off learning the ropes of openFrameworks, but then take what we have been learning to create much larger projects & take our coding skills further.
Our workflow in the series uses macOS & Xcode. Code should not be any different for other platform users on Linux or Windows, but there will be platform/system specific things for certain features [which we will address when they come up].
There has been talk about using Visual Studio Code within openFrameworks. Personally im looking forward to this & will be implementing it into the series once its made public. It breaks it down the divide that people have with IDEs & gives an even footing, allowing people to use the same text editor. The only difference is platform/system specific features.
• Short & simple to follow videos
• Source code available
• Easy for beginners
