We'll be making some very basic introductions likening `html` to a *choose your own adventure*. Then we'll have some **adventures in text** with *command line tools*, learn to eyeball `JSON` files for a data adventure and make our own files for simple interactive artworks and games and look at further resources like `node-red` to build on.
## Getting Started
## [Tocky Tales](http://planning.mcqn.com/)
Book on either of these workshops:
As an example of what you can do check out [Adrian McEwen's](https://twitter.com/amcewen) example game ***Tocky Tales*** he made at our workshop using [node-red](https://nodered.org/), [Twine](http://twinery.org) and **Dave Mee**'s [TwineNodered](http://github.com/davemee/TwineNodered) code. Follow your fantasy planning votes from the game on Twitter [@ToxtethPlanning](https://twitter.com/ToxtethPlanning) and [find out more here](http://mcqn.com/ibal192)

## Getting Started
It's not essential but you might like to look at some of the [basic resources at Mozilla here](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn) made by the awesome technical writer **Chris Mills**. We are only expecting basic familiarity with html, the command line and things like javascript or python so you *can* come along with just basic knowledge.
It's also worth looking at [this](https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/internet-health/) and we'll be doing some playing with [node-red](https://nodered.org/) and [Twine](http://twinery.org) thanks to **Dave Mee**'s [TwineNodered](http://github.com/davemee/TwineNodered) code.
We'll be playing the [Command Line Murder Mystery](https://github.com/veltman/clmystery) to get practice on using the command line to pull out useful things from online resources.
We also advise playing the [Command Line Murder Mystery](https://github.com/veltman/clmystery) to get practice on using the command line to pull out useful things from large text files!
Then you can dive into Adrian's [Adventures In Text](https://gitlab.com/DomesticScience/InteractiveNonFiction/tree/master/chooseYourOwnAdventure/adventuresInText) resources that helped make **Tocky Tales**!

If you are a regular windows user we suggest installing [Cygwin](https://www.cygwin.com/) to use powerful command line tools that Windows does not quite provide. We've made it easy to install locally on the day so please [refer to these install notes](https://gitlab.com/DomesticScience/InteractiveNonFiction/blob/master/cygwin/README.md).
A newer alternative is using something like [Cash](https://github.com/dthree/cash) but this doesn't have all of the useful `UNIX`-like commands we might need but we thought we'd mention it here. It requires you to install [node.js](https://nodejs.org/en/download/) which you'll need for playing with node-red anyway.
