This was a presentation given at the end of 2010 as part of Internet Week Europe. BBH Labs and Google Creative Labs put this together not, as Google’s Tom Uglow points out, “to “teach” HTML or anything like it – but to just open up the engine and have a look, reduce the fear factor, and break down some barriers.”
We should do lots more of these kinds of workshops in the film world I think! If the 21st Century is all about the interface then getting familiar with a little bit of code feels increasingly essential. During the Transmedia Lab at Silverdocs last week, some filmmakers expressed interest in taking part in a WordPress bootcamp. What other kinds of web/tech workshops would you like to see more of?
