Unfortunately, there are not active courses at the moment. If you are interested, drop me a line. I will contact you as soon as a new course is released.
Since 2019, I have decided to offer Python for Designers online courses which are based on this manual. This type of solution eases many logistical problems and allows me to reach a broader audience. The courses also provide financial help for additional project developments.
The Python for Designers online course is structured in eight classes of three hours each. During each session, I will explain the concepts, toss some code around and perform practice exercises. The course will guide you through the contents of the manual (and more) focusing on strategy and problem-solving skills . You will need two hours between each class for completing assignments.
Resources and solutions will be shared via Slack workspace. You will need an Apple computer (Drawbot only runs on MacOS) and a decent internet connection (classes are served via Zoom).
Needless to say, a 24 hours course like this is not a Computer Science degree. It is just a way to break the ice, you will need time and regular practice to master programming.
The course is meant for beginners with no prior coding experience, operating in the fields of design and art (or any field dealing with images, really). If you already know the fundamentals of programming and Python but you want to increase your skills further, get in touch and we will arrange something up for you.
«I highly recommend this course. As a designer, I was already involved in coding but this course gave me much more confidence in developing my scripts. The course has a design-oriented approach, allowing me to understand everything quite easily»
Emilio Grazzi, Graphic and Information Designer
«Python for designers was truly eye opening. The course covered all the bases and provided a good foundation for future skill development. Extremely useful was the exercise correction using different methods to achieve the same final result and real world application of the material covered during classes»
Alessia Mazzarella, Type Designer
«If you are looking for a better understanding of Python and Drawbot I recommend taking this course. However it will require patience and some digging for forgotten math principles. I had never written code before and this was a challenge but Roberto offers a detailed explanation of basic principles plus various exercises that walk you through different concepts step by step. And the best thing is that all the course is recorded and you can revisit the explanation and solutions to different principles whenever you want»
Sabina Kipara, Type and Graphic Designer
«Python for designers was the perfect course for me. I up-skilled my core programming concepts and learned the basics of Python. The exercises were challenging but digestible and by the end of 2the course I was using DrawBot to supplement my daily workflow»
