“Tinkering” with Charlie Gerard and Cassie Evans

I am beyond delighted to welcome Cassie Evans and Charlie Gerard in this edition of Stay Curious. Both love tinkering. Cassie on Codepen, where you can find a lot of her SVG adventures and Charlie in the Projects area of her site, where she also states ”Useless is not worthless” – which is absolutely right. I am looking forward to an edition where we’ll hear and see why playfulness and experiments are important and why you never should stop being curious!


Building Mixed Reality Experiences in JavaScript (Charlie Gerard)

For the past few years, building AR and VR projects for the web has been possible with tools like A-Frame, Three.js and AR.js.

More recently, work around bringing mixed reality to the web has been done. With the WebXR API being in active development, let’s look into the differences between these technologies, what’s currently possible, and how to get started.

The SVG Toolkit (Cassie Evans)

SVG isn’t just a scalable image format. It's capable of some seriously cool stuff!

Let’s take a look under the hood and explore how to make some snazzy code-based visual effects.
