It’s time to stop procrastinating on your projects and get to it and do it! just Make it attitude will go a long way. given that it’s soon to be so hot in shanghai, it’s good to work in a cool and cooled environment.
Weekly Creative Programming Meeting @ XinCheJian – 8pm – 08/04/2013
The creative programming meeting aims to bring together everybody who is interested in programming.
In the “First Creative Programming Meeting” we discussed the meaning of creativity in relation to programming. Two ideas appeared, on the one hand creativity in the finding of solutions for problems and on the other hand using programming for creative “aesthetic products” (art, music, design). Easer of this ideas appeals to you, you might find somebody in the group.
Format for the now starting “Weekly Creative Programming Meeting” on Monday evenings, is ‘present a problem’ and ‘retrieve different solutions’. Each week a few people can bring their current projects and explain their problems, when the problem “activates” some creativity of the participants it might develop into a “creative” solution finding group.
Feel free to invent a problem and bring it to xinchejian on monday evenings!
Holiday folks! it’s time to hack stuff! Thursday -> Saturday, Check the website often over this holiday time, we’re going to be doing all sorts of magic.
Tom Igoe is an Associate Arts Professor at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). Coming from a background in theatre lighting design, Igoe makes tools that sense and respond to a wide range of human physical expression. He is the aread head for physical computing courses, and teaches courses in networking as well. He is also interested in how to lessen the impact that making things has on the environment, and how open hardware development can contribute to that. He has written three books for makers, and is working on a fourth. He is an occasional contributor to Make magazine as well. He is a co-founder of Arduino. He has consulted for various museums and interactive design companies as well. He is currently living a personal dream of working with monkeys, and wants to visit Svalbard someday.
Also if you use Processing and Arduino you can thank him tonight!
