This course is designed for all artists
interested in using the Internet for conceptual and creative production. We
will focus on developing proficiency in the basic methods and properties of the

Artists interested in all aspects of composing - audio, visual, 2d etc, will can get something from this course.

Every artist will need the code editor "Visual Studio Code" and also the Chrome browser installed on their laptop. Once "Visual Studio Code" is installed, they will also need to install the extension called "Live Server".
