Wednesday, October 14, 2009 4-6 pm
Led by mark edward grimm
Pd (aka Pure Data) is a real-time graphical programming environment for audio, video, and graphical processing. It is the third major branch of the family of patcher programming languages known as Max (Max/FTS, ISPW Max, Max/MSP, jMax, etc.) originally developed by Miller Puckette and company at IRCAM.
This workshop is an introduction to the basic concepts of puredata and some simple implementations for artists to get started in programming interactive audio/visual applications.
Workshop participants must accompany themselves with a laptop of their choice. All operating systems are acceptable.

Buddy Press

You can become a member, join groups, start your own blog, etc.  I hope it will work, so check it out: http://connect.theasintheas.org/
