6 years 34 weeks ago David Muth: Processing Processing is an open source programming language and development platform. It can be downloaded for free at the processing.org website. By simplifying the syntax and compilation process of the programming language Java whilst simultaneously extending its visual capabilities, Processing makes computer programming more accessible for people with little previous experience, especially those "visually minded". It is being utilised by a large and lively community composed of students, artists, musicians, architects, designers and researchers. Another workshop held by David Muth in TAKEAWAY Festival: Creative Computing Workshop, 2006
6 years 34 weeks ago David Muth: Creative Computing The creative computing workshop introduces the visual programming language PD, a highly modular open source development environment. It has a long tradition of being used by composers, performers, researchers and artists interested in creating interactive software. PD offers a very playful approach to modifying an existing program, as it blurs the distinction between authoring, compiling and testing. Its particular strength, apart from its appeal to people without any knowledge of scripting languages, lies in sound and imagery. Workshop, 2006
6 years 34 weeks ago Jaromil: dyne:bolic The new 2.0 release of the free multimedia operating system dyne:bolic GNU/Linux will be presented and introduced with its functionalities for streaming and producing audio/video materials employing only open source software, for the freedom of speech. In the panorama of existing operating systems we see that there are a great number of possibilities to listen: all kinds of "free to download" players for audio and video, but no easy way for everybody to speak out loud and spread their words. The way communication is structured follows a hierarchy of well established powers and, worst than ever, money is the main requirement for making a voice spread and possible to be heard by others. Workshop, 2006

6 years 34 weeks ago Dirk Waldik: Social mapping-Flash/Web 2.0 Social mapping–Flash/Web 2.0 - Held by Dirk Waldik 31th March 2006 musiCompass focuses on the world of music. Music is one of the best ways to express emotions and moods as a performer as well as a listener. Music has been, and continues to be at the centres of society. Artists create styles of music, people listen to them and develop identifications; collecting music, creating play lists and developing a unique music taste are trends of the time. musiCompass aims to bring people, artists and music together in a visual and interactive environment. Concept Based on the idea that there are patterns in tastes and that tastes are not distributed uniformly, musiCompass uses collaborative filtering on profiled music data. Each person is...

6 years 34 weeks ago Adam Burt: Pod casting I'm proposing to show participants how easy it is to create pod casts using open source tools, and to distribute them on the web using open source blogging platforms. Ideally, participants should have some audio or video material already digitised on their laptops, as I presume there won't be time to take them through capturing any material. Perhaps other demonstrators will be able to show participants how open source tools such as Audacity can be used to record audio. I'll be showing people how to use ffmepeg to transcode video for podcasting, and how Audacity can be used to prepare audio recordings for podcasting. Workshop, 2006
6 years 34 weeks ago Rama/Platoniq.net: Burn Station Burn Station is a mobile copying station which - as it travels through suburban spaces - supports the free distribution of music and audio.

Burn Station is an open-source, non-commercial project involving the new means of free networked distribution. It is based on the Burn Station software which was developed by Platoniq and Rama as a 100% free software. Burn Station aims to establish links between the media space and the physical space of the city. Workshop, 2006

The Ravensbourne Postgraduate Studies department has developed an open source learning and teaching strategy. Open Source tools and related attitudes towards knowledge and collaboration play an important role in the ways in which information technologies are integrated into the courses. We use tools such as mailing lists, webspace, wikis and weblogs, and run a small network with development servers. Lisa Haskel and James Smith lead a discussion on the... Workshop, 2006

7 years 20 weeks ago Hivenetworks Workshop HIVE combines the virtues of free software, networks and open hardware to generate a framework for networked media applications on small and cheap consumer devices. The workshop will show how HIVE devices can be used in range of applications. About Hive HIVE is creating a new form of network, one that sees, feels, listens, senses, touches and communicates to the world around it. Each HIVE enabled device is capable of gathering content (through webcams, microphones, sensors) and disseminating it either to its immediate physical location or across a local or global network. HIVEWARES is the software behind each HIVE device. It is an open source operating system designed to work on commercially available network hardware such as wireless... 2007, Workshop

7 years 20 weeks ago Web 2 for me and you in September 2005, the concept of "Web 2.0" began with a conference brainstorming session between publishers O'Reilly and MediaLive International. What started as an annoying industry buzzword has taken real meaning, generally accepted refering to user controlled - user generated web sites. Blogging software, Photo-sharing and Social Networking Spaces are 3 of the biggest 'web 2.0' types of websites. The ideas behind the web2.0 shift are so powerful they changed the business model of the web, many people claim it a final a move to complete World Wide Web visionary Tim Berners Lee's idea of the participatory Internet. But what does it mean for you? what can it do for you? and how do you do it? Find out more about the different ways to... 2007, Workshop
