Titel:Hands-On Workshop: Mathematical Animations in Action
Bring your own device to try out the community edition of the mathematicial animation engine Manim in this hands-on workshop. We explore the
framework’s basic functionalities by creating a series of short (but cool!)
animations, and learn about further references.
Manim is a Python framework for visualizing mathematical concepts and
ideas in animated videos. Originally created by Grant “3Blue1Brown”
Sanderson, whose Manim-produced YouTube videos get millions of clicks
and are a driving force contributing to the popularization of Mathematics, his code base also has some peculiarities that are common for large
one-person projects, e.g., little to no documentation, and an unstable interface. To combat these shortcomings, a small community has formed that
is actively maintaining, cleaning and continuously improving Manim; the
speaker is one of the core developers of manim-community.
