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

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.
