2020 series of 2h introduction workshops to vvvv (gamma)
Learn creative coding with the new visual programming language. Get on-boarded with Generative Design, Interaction Design, Data Visualization, Computer Vision, Rapid Prototyping, Physical Computing, Projection Mapping, Show Control...
Every fourth Tuesday a month we’re running a vvvv gamma intro workshop for total beginners in Berlin with the developers. It runs for 2 hours and gives participants an idea of how it feels to work with the new version of the visual programming environment vvvv gamma. Here you learn the fundamentals that you need to be able to follow further workshops or take the next steps on your own, continuing with online learning resources. Spread the word, send your friends and family!
What the vvvv?
vvvv is a visual programming environment that allows you to realize ideas quickly without the need to write any code. But if you want, you can also write C# code for it and use any .NET library with it! To give you an idea of the areas vvvv can be helpful in, here is a list of buzz words vvvv is often associated with:
- Generative Design
- Interaction Design
- Data Visualization
- Computer Vision
- Rapid Prototyping
- Physical Computing
- Projection Mapping
- Show Control
What happens in the workshop?
In these 2 hour courses we’ll be using vvvv (version gamma) to: give you an overview of vvvv’s possibilities, guide you step-by-step through creating your first little programs, mention things like Kinect, Midi, OSC, TUIO, UDP, Rs232, Leap, Vive, Rift, DMX, Art-Net, Arduino, Lasers, Motors,… leave you with an idea of what next steps you can take to divvvve deeper
Right after every intro workshop, meaning also every fourth Tuesday a month, starting 8pm, we’re are running a vvvv meetup where the berlin based vvvv community comes together. Here we count on you: Have a project, demo or new library to show? Just come with your laptop and present. Low profile, no pressure. Doesn’t need to be polished, rough around the edges is very welcome! Or just grab a drink and lean back!
Who is this for?
The curious, who are interested in adding a new tool to their toolbox the lazy ones who want to get their things done more efficiently the ones afraid of coding, who want to try visual programming instead those familliar with vvvv beta who want to move to vvvv gamma
