About the Course

Why should a designer learn to code? As our world is increasingly impacted by the use of algorithms, designers must learn how to use and create design computing programs. Designers must go beyond the narrowly focused use of computers in the automation of simple drafting/modeling tasks and instead explore the extraordinary potential digitalization holds for design culture/practice. Structured around a series of fundamental design problems, this course will show you Python code in terms of its rules and syntax, and what we can do with it in its application and design. So, by the end of this course, you will know the fundamentals of Python and Rhino script, but importantly, through the lens of their application in geometrically focused design lessons and exercises. Subjects covered in this course - An introduction to Design Computing as a subject and why designers should learn to code. - The fundamentals of coding in the Python scripting language. By the end of the course students will be familiar with the basic structure and syntax of this language. - The understanding and application of Rhinoscriptsyntax, a native coding language in Rhinoceros that’s imported into Python, which allows one to create and control geometries through authoring code. - The application of Procedural Logics - the structuring of coding systems to produce variable geometric form. - The output of geometries in still and animate forms....

Great logic and progress tutorial for a slow learner like me! (note that practice for each session is extremely helpful to understand the code)
