About Tiny Code Christmas
Join us for 12 days of tiny challenges to gradually introduce you to size coding and effects! A new video will be released each day to introduce a new concept and outline the challenge.
A little bit of programming knowledge will help but you don’t need a lot. The challenges will introduce demoscene concepts without jargon so it is friendly for newcomers to the scene! Tell your friends!
