It’s really fun to work with graphics when building apps and websites, but how do you get started? HTML5 has a technology called Canvas that lets us draw graphics to our screens. We can do everything from making basic shapes to creating complex interactive games and animations!

In this course, we will learn the basics of using Canvas. We’ll start by learning how to create a canvas on an HTML page. Next we will learn how to draw and style with fills and strokes. Finally, we will add interactivity to canvas elements.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    Hello, that is an interesting course. Canvas is a logic on itself that I always used to learn. Thanks to you I can now play with it so thank you. What could you improve to complete this course ? The whole course is fun to hear and pretty easy to follow, it's a pleasure. But you don't talk of when to use the canvas instead of libraries like chart.js etc. It would be nice to compare the native solution and a wrapper say when I want use a simple version or a more complexe solution. Thank you for the courses, I've learn something new today, again.
