Presented by Peter Cook.   Sponsored by Runway East.

Particle Flow

Peter Cook will show how to create particle flow animations. These use similar techniques to visualisations such as the wind map and Cameron Beccario's wind map.

Peter will show how to build a particle flow animation from first principles. He'll take you on a step by step journey, starting with a single particle. He'll explain vectors, velocity fields, particle animation, the Canvas element and requestAnimationFrame.

All concepts will be explained and demonstrated - it's not as difficult as you might imagine. This should be a fun and educational evening for new and seasoned developers!

This is primarily a talk, rather than a workshop, so there's no need to bring a laptop. However you'll be able to explore the examples if you do have a laptop with you.

Peter's a data visualisation developer at Flourish (Canva). He also makes training courses and books on data visualisation. He runs D3 in Depth and Create With Data, self published the book D3 Start to Finish and recently launched the video course Visualising Data with JavaScript.

We welcome people of all backgrounds and experience levels, so whether you've got a few years under your belt, or you're just starting to look into development we'd love to have you along.

Pizzas provided by our venue! Runway East has been fighting boring offices since 2014. Members get team bliss guaranteed with space to scale. Learn more.
