This course provides an introduction to Cinder using C++. Cinder is a community-developed, free and open source library for professional-quality creative coding in C++. Topics ranging from the basic architecture of a Cinder application, to 2D basic drawing, handling user input, image processing basics, face detection, OpenCV integration, and animation basics are included. An elementary knowledge of C++ should be just fine to follow the course, though more advanced aspects of the language and of the STL libraries will be discussed when needed.
