Ancient Brain Starter Tutorial (P5)
This tutorial shows you how to get started on Ancient Brain (P5 version).
To be precise, this shows how to start coding on Ancient Brain
using the P5 library for the graphics.
(You can use other libraries for graphics, notably Three.js.)
On Ancient Brain, you can edit and run programs in the browser, with no install.
You have to register and get a username
if you want to save your creations.
The tutorial has videos for each step
- The tutorial does not assume you have ever done any computer programming (or "coding") before.
It starts from scratch.
- This is not a full course in programming.
For that see the Introduction to Programming course.
- Rather, this explains how to use Ancient Brain.
As such, it serves as a gentle introduction to the idea of coding itself.
- Credit to Ideas Lab at NIDL at DCU for their excellent video editing.
The tutorial will show you how to copy and edit a simple "World" called "One Cube World".
(Click on a World image to run it.)
You will soon be able to make variants of this World.
See the many variants that people have made.
One impressive one is "Interstellar cubes".
