I Can't Even Canvas, But Now You Can!

This is also posted on Code Koalas’s site.

If you’re anything like me a couple years ago, you probably have avoided doing animations in Canvas because it’s crazy complicated and you’re just a person who can make websites, not a real programmer who can make games and things. But here’s the thing: you’re wrong. Making animations and games in Canvas is very easy and fun, I’d argue it’s easier than writing JavaScript for sites. If you can make a mobile menu, a carousel, or even just an alert() you can make a small animation in Canvas. I’ve taught this to children and very drunk people who know nothing about coding at Code Koalas First Friday events we host.
