What is this thing called Generative Art?
Nowadays, there is a fuss about generative art. With the help of a huge amount of resources on the web, it rapidly became an interesting context in the last years and received the attention from very different sets of people, from artists to coders. If you love using Rust, then you're just a step away from the kaleidoscopic world of generative art. In this introductory talk, we'll get lost in the intersection between Rust and generative art by get our hands dirty with nannou, an open-source creative-coding toolkit.
