Talk abstract:
Graphics packages that support non-­trivial drawing usually require an overwhelming amount of mathematical and computational knowledge to use. Computer science departments, as a result, tend not to offer graphics­-intensive courses until advanced undergraduate classes. Our project is to create a powerful but simple graphics library in Python and Java that is tailored for novice programmers.
