Abstract

Proprietary design software is good for the masses. But these tools can often put a limit to your creativity. They are usually built for one specific task. If you make your own tools, you can design them to do what you want and get a better result in the end. In this talk, you'll get an overview of how you can use code within a design process. Making mistakes while coding can often lead to new shapes and more creative ideas.
