Critical Coding Cookbook

It was a joy and delight putting this “recipe” together for the Critical Coding Cookbook. Although I consider myself a perpetual novice at creative coding and programming, one of the most memorable parts of learning how to code was when I first used Processing back, sometime in 2010 (I think!) to create patterns and shapes. In recent years, I’ve created text generators with p5.js and have used the p5 Editor to experiment and play around with making simple games. Please take a look at the amazing recipes from artists, writers, and educators.
