A Visual Introduction To Programming
This workshop is for absolute beginners, or people who have only dabbled with programming for fun. The workshop teaches basic concepts in programming through the creation of visual forms. We explore how to build simple drawing systems with the nuts and bolts of code: variables, loops, conditions, branches, and functions. The workshop's two goals are: 1) to demystify and demolish any wrongful preconceptions about programming being a difficult activity, and 2) to highlight the vast creative potential that lies in being able to think and create with code.

Inspired by this year's theme of PCD@Aarhus, along the way we will try to establish a connection with the nature around us, to include it as a co-creator of our works.
