Invitation to NODE17 Forum for Digital Arts // June 26th to July 2nd 2017, Germany

Dear Cinder community,

we warmly invite you to NODE17 Forum for Digital Arts, taking place from June 26th to July 2nd 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Join the one-week festival program with more than 50 hands-on workshops on creative coding. Our 65+ international hosts are looking forward to share their knowledge and experience.

The content of teaching focuses on the community driven visual toolkit vvvv but reaches out to many other great programs and tools.

Please watch the documentary of the last festival edition for some inspiration:

For NODE17 we recommend the following introductory classes:

  • 2-day Introductions to vvvv (in Englisch or German)

  • 1-day Introduction to vvvv for Software Developers

Especially for software developers as you are, we point out vvvv’s new companion Visual Language (VL) which makes importing existing software libraries and using them within vvvv’s visual UI for rapid prototyping extremely comfortably. Workshops on VL are:

  • Developing Nodes and Libaries for VL

  • VL concepts and patterns

For all visual artists and designers:

  • Introduction to Rendering with DirectX11

  • DirectX11 Shading (Intermediate)

  • DirectX11 Shading (Expert)

  • Compute Shader by example

  • Particle Systems – Feature rich, modular and GPU based high-performance implementation

  • Photogrammetry for Virtual Reality

  • Rendering with the Volume Ray Casting technique

  • Procedural Noise Graphics

  • Projection Mapping

  • and 11 workshops more

All creatives in the fields of real-time interaction please check

  • Introduction to Virtual Reality

  • Multi-user VR

  • 3d tracking with Kinect

  • and more workshops

For makers we server workshops on physical computing and tinkering hardware:

  • Interfacing Arduino and vvvv

  • Introduction to 3d printing

  • Internet of Things - Bridging the gap between things with MQTT

  • and 6 workshops more

Lastly, sound artists and designers pay attention: NODE17 serves a 3d immersive audio setup!

  • Introduction to 3d immersive audio

  • Creative experiments with 3d immersive audio
