Creating Connected Applications
In today’s remote-first environment, web-based communication tools like zoom, discord, and discourse have become integral to our daily lives both personally and professionally. We aim to provide participants the opportunity to move from being users of such tools to being creators of them.
Here is what we will cover:
* What tools are available today for us to create our own web-based communication technologies?
* How can we conceptualize, design and develop multi-person experiences on the web?
* A focus on websockets, socket.io, and the glitch platform with everyone leaving with their own working multi-person web-based application.
This session is open to all levels. Some programming experience is recommended but not required. This will be a hands-on workshop, participants are encouraged to join via laptop or desktop as opposed to a mobile device. Also, participants will be expected to create an account in Glitch.
