Creative Coding: Live Visuals with CinderBy: Simon Geilfus (AntiVJ)
Do you want to learn about coding live visual interfaces and performances, but you are a bit intimidated by Cinder and creative coding in c++? This workshop is for you.
Simon Geilfus of AntiVJ will be giving an introduction to creative coding and Cinder.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the custom software Simon will provide, it is recommended that you bring a Mac. If you are running Linux or Windows, please contact us beforehand to verify accessibility.
The first part of the workshop will be set up as an informal lecture about the use of Cinder and scripting languages in a creative context. You will learn how to benefit from live coding and how to integrate scripting into your creative workflow. Scripting is well known in animation studios and in the game industry but still needs to make its way in the creative coding community. Simon will talk about practical cases where scripting has changed the way he works with code.
In the second part of the workshop, you’ll be given a small and gentle introduction to Cinder without the hassle of learning specificities of the language or how to use an IDE (or: ‘Integrated Development Environment’) which are usually the main constraints when learning c++. Perfect for everyone who already has some experience, but wants to take the next step.
This workshop is aimed at visual artists with some background in creating visuals with programming languages. Some basic experience with Processing (or OpenFrameworks) is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the workshop.
You should bring:
