JQuery/HTML Site

“Most Net.Art is indeed created by artists with an extensive knowledge of programming or alternatively, by teams that include both artists and programmers” (Winfried Noth, 2007)

Having doing some art before, I have use what I learnt with code academy to put both art and code together. I have created a website which has a visually creative feel to it. I have created a grid by putting boxes together, this became a canvas like website. JQuery is then used with the toggleClass, and the click function on the box, the toggle class allows the box to be lit up.

Because of the grid it allows the use of visual art because you can simply create your art in the form or squares or even better pixels. This can be related to gimp as it is pixel drawing only  having the ability to draw and erase. The only thing that I am unable to do is create a proper art canvas for people to draw on and also select colours.

JQuery Code Academy

Within a few days of working on HTML, I moved on to have completed the course for JQuery.

Throughout this course I have gained more of a understanding for JQuery as well as Javascript, as I have never had any experience with JQuery Throughout this course I have learnt :

  • How to run JQuery within a website
  • Mixing what I learnt from CSS with JQuery
  • Functions
  • Variables
  • Document Object Model
  • Different effects available with JQuery
  • Selectors

From doing this course I have more understanding from JQuery as i have done some Javascript before hand and it has helped enhanced my knowledge on Javascript and JQuery and how they work together. I also learnt that there are tons of effects which are available from the JQuery website. This can help with my website that I will build as the brief says to use JQuery and I feel more comfortable with it. So I will implement the basic teaching that I have learnt to the website I will build and hopefully make something creative.
