vvvv is a visual programming tool that allows you to do what programmers can do with code. You’ll learn how to read data from files or online sources and visualize it with 2d drawing techniques. We’ll also show you how to export your creations to vector graphics for further processing them in vector tools like Inkscape or Illustrator. This workshop is for creative coders, students, data scientists and graphic designers, who want to learn a new way to work with data in their process of making 2d graphics.


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!
