Discover how your everyday tech works while developing your coding skills!
Computer graphics are everywhere! From the icons and buttons you tap to open and navigate apps to the impressive special effects in movies, these are created by computers and more or less complex code. Let's take a look inside how these work and learn to code our own in Create the Code: Computer Graphics. Using Scratch and HTML, you'll create a simple drawing app, code an explosion and even make a 3D model of the Solar System.
Each book in the Create the Code series explains the key computer code and systems that are used to create and control the tech you use everyday such as the Internet, your smartphone, music and films and your apps. Step-by-step activities teach you how to create your own versions on screen with code.
The series uses Scratch, HTML and MIT's App Inventor as the coding languages.
