Fractals with JavaScript and Canvas

We'll play with the HTML5 Canvas element and some simple javascript to draw cool fractals.

Fractals are a fun way to learn about some programming fundamentals while making pretty pictures. We'll use JavaScript (and maybe Ruby) to draw fractals on a web page. This is a beginner friendly class. While it's not about Rails exactly, learning about JavaScript and html elements like Canvas is important for building web applications using any framework.

Prereqs: Read about fractals. Please know some basic JavaScript. CodeAcademy is a good resource.

The Codewars kata for this class is a basic problem, but do it in JavaScript!

Be sure to complete the following Codewars challenge before class! (If your RailsSchool profile includes your Codewars username, you'll get a nifty star if you complete the challenge.)
