For centuries, human beings have built machines to explore the world around us. We’ve built microscopes that have revealed a hidden world of wonders too small to see with the naked eye; we’ve sent satellites and probes into deep space to explore the most distant reaches of our universe… and in the last few decades, we’ve used the power of digital computers to explore another hidden world; a world of mathematics and information.
Dylan Beattie’s talk “The Art of Code” has been presented at conferences all over the world and had over half a million views on YouTube. In this workshop, Dylan will show you some of the code and algorithms used to create the examples and visualisations used in that talk.
What You’ll Learn
Conway’s Game of Life
We’ll also look at how you can use advanced programming techniques like bit fields and bitwise arithmetic to build high-performance implementations of Conway’s Game of Life.
Fractal Geometry and the Mandelbrot Set
