helo evvvveryone,
(and your friends who don't use vvvv yet)

This summer we're offering a series of free introductory workshops, to give you a taste of what it feels like to work with the all new vvvv.

UPDATE: In addition we now offer a series of full day workshops.

What the vvvv?

vvvv is a visual programming environment that allows you to realize ideas quickly without the need to write any code. But if you want, you can also write C# code for it and use any .NET library with it!

To give you an idea of the areas vvvv can be helpful in, here is a list of buzz words vvvv is often associated with:

  • Generative Design
  • Interaction Design
  • Data Visualization
  • Computer Vision
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Physical Computing
  • Projection Mapping
  • Show Control

What happens in the workshop

In these 2 hour courses we'll be using vvvv (version gamma) to:

  • give you an overview of vvvv's possibilities
  • guide you step-by-step through creating your first little programs
  • mention things like Kinect, Midi, OSC, TUIO, UDP, Rs232, Leap, Vive, Rift, DMX, Art-Net, Arduino, Lasers, Motors,...
  • leave you with an idea of what next steps you can take to divvvve deeper

Who is this for?

  • the curious, who are interested in adding a new tool to their toolbox
  • the lazy ones who want to get their things done more efficiently
  • the ones afraid of coding, who want to try visual programming instead
  • those familliar with vvvv beta who want to move to vvvv gamma

When?

Choose one:

  • July 23, 6-8pm (followed by vvvv meetup)
  • August 8, 6-8pm
  • August 27, 6-8pm (followed by vvvv meetup)
  • September 12, 6-8pm
  • September 24, 6-8pm (followed by vvvv meetup)

Where?

Brüll & Kraus
Wipperstrasse 13
12055 Berlin

Requirements

  • a Windows laptop
  • a 3 button mouse

Please send an email to david, indicating the date you want to participate in:

Hope to see you soon!

Who david, joreg, aaaa, sebl
When Tue, Jul 23rd 2019 - 20:00 until Tue, Jul 23rd 2019 - 23:00
Where Wipper13 Brüll & Kraus, Wipperstr. 13, Berlin, Germany, Germany

Hellow Patchers

Here are some good news:

We got a new space in Davids and Stefans new office in Berlin that gives us finally the chance to plan our program more ahead. The best thing: the space is not only our office space, it is also particulary designed to host workshops and meetups. We will start a workshop and meetup series this summer in a more or less formless way. About the vvvv program you will be informed here and via different social media channels. We do not have an official website for the new space yet (working on it -> you will not miss it for sure), but you can be informed on other meetups groups, FB and the NODE channels.

July 23rd 2019. Meetup time is 20h!

This is the Meetup for vvvv interested open minds based in Berlin or visiting us in Berlin. Its a meeting point for creatives and visual developers, interactive media, digital art, technology and design enthusiast. We are open to anyone who wants to join, no matter if you are a vvvv expert or beginner, a famous or breadless artists, a designhead or technologist, a piano player or techno musician. We are especially open for newcomers and curious beginners and we try to make this meetup as diverse as possible but with a focus on vvvv and VL.

New to vvvv? Get an introduction workshop

Each meetup is preceded by a 2 hour free introduction to vvvv for everybody who is curious about the software and the creative possibilities that come along with it. After some food we go over to the meetup with presentations. See separate blogpost!

Do I need to know vvvv or vl to join this meetup?

No, absolutely not. The presentations will be about projects, patches, plugins, contributions, or simple add ons made with or for vvvv, but you do not need to know it to enjoy the meetup.

What is going on at this meetup?

You come, grab a drink and listen. You grab the next drink and talk. We have one or two announced presentations followed by one or two spontaneous presentations by anyone who brought something to show... We have space and time for spontaneous discussions and presentations! The focus should be in the processes, the decisions and the mistakes that occur during the development of an idea. Submissions are welcome. Please drop us a line.

RSVP

If you feel like, please rsvp on our Gettogether page!

previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in May 2019


so here we are,

in the middle of the summer hole and bad news first, we still haven't come to terms with a proper update on the 2 last remaining features for vvvv gamma 2019.1 that are (as mentioned before) better tooltips and executable export. good news, there is progress:


big deal: .vl files compiled to .dlls

besides, our work on the node-library is doing well. currently in the works and already available for testing are:

so grab the latest preview and give those and everything else a spin. this is really a good time to get into vvvv gamma and report your findings. mentioned already last month, but this deserves a recall: be sure to watch the latest design pattern video tutorials by dottore, they'll get you going builing proper apps with vvvv as has not been possible before!

Contributions

first up a huge drop in the wip section by eno VL.Tilda, a timeliner for vl!

all the new stuff:
VL.IO.Net.Email by ravazquez
Korg NanoKontrol2 by yar
Asteroids Font (Laser) by soundreactor

and the updates:
Instance Noodles by everyoneishappy
FieldTrip by everyoneishappy
Happy.fxh by everyoneishappy

Gallery

and more:

Jobs

and as always if you're looking for a vvvv job or even have one to announce, remember these:


that was it for june. anything to add? please do so in the comments!

Waifu Synthesis- real time generative anime

Bit of a playful project investigating real-time generation of singing anime characters, a neural mashup if you will.

All of the animation is made in real-time using a StyleGan neural network trained on the Danbooru2018 dataset, a large scale anime image database with 3.33m+ images annotated with 99.7m+ tags.

Lyrics were produced with GPT-2, a large scale language model trained on 40GB of internet text. I used the recently released 345 million parameter version- the full model has 1.5 billion parameters, and has currently not been released due to concerns about malicious use (think fake news).

Music was made in part using models from Magenta, a research project exploring the role of machine learning in the process of creating art and music.

Setup is using vvvv, Python and Ableton Live.

StyleGan, Danbooru2018, GPT-2 and Magenta were developed by Nvidia,gwern.net/Danbooru2018, OpenAI and Google respectively.
