Workshop Description: Zajal is a new programming language developed by Eyebeam Fellow Ramsey Nasser. It is designed to be a lot of fun, and emphasizes improvisation and experimentation over rigid rules. Each of these three workshops will introduce the language in a different way: through game design, data visualization, and physical computing.

Game design calls for the ability to rapidly change rules of a game while developing it. Zajal's combination of graphics capabilities and live coding makes it ideal for game prototyping. The first workshop will focus on gathering input, maintaining game state, and displaying graphics to make a complete video game.
