EVERYWHEN
Everywhen is dark, depressive and captivating contemplation on the recurrence in history. Everywhen orbits around two sides of life - the personal and the political. An often caring, gentle and well-meaning personal life is contrasted here with the reality of the social individual, who can often be sinister, vengeful and hateful. But how can we be critical to our own world views when they are created by those closest to us?

Excerpt of latest work by Takuma Nakata

Here we go again!

As every 4th tuesday of the month we'll meet again coming tuesday at the cozy NODE Institute in Rixdorf, Neukölln.

This time we'll have a live-connection to the other side of the globe from where fellow patcher Takuma Nakata will tell us about his latest work. He writes:

Hi I'm Takuma Nakata, Interaction Designer based in Kyoto Japan. With this OOOO I'm gonna talk about how I design an Interactive installation using vvvv with design perspective.

Additional: I'm personally not a coder, really bad with math, but still I can add interactivity to design by using vvvv, which is great since it's visually understandable.

I am an Adobe Creative Residency, as an Experiential Designer. I'll talk what it's about, and try not go too deep with vvvv.

We'd also love to hear from you: If you have something to show or talk about, please do so! Bring your projects, demos, works-in-progress and show us what you're patching with!

And you can expect a little live-demo of RCP that will be shipping with upcoming beta39...

Free vvvv gamma introduction
Wanna get a taste of the all-new vvvv gamma? Join us already from 6pm to enjoy a 2 hour introduction to the future of visual programming! Please sign up for free!

You will learn how to:

  • Translate your knowledge about object oriented programming into the visual paradigms of VL.
  • Write VL nodes in C#
  • Extend your application with third-party libraries from the internet while it is running
  • Convert textual code into visual code
  • Use generics

For immediate release:

Berlin, October 4, 2019 - vvvv is humbled to announce a close collaboration with the unparalleled c# open-source 3d engine Xenko.

As a small developer studio with a focus on disrupting the world of visualprogramming, it became apparent to us that we cannot at the same time join the battle of 3d engines. Still, a strong 3d engine needs to be at the core of vvvv so it can serve in the main usecases we know for vvvv today. Therefore we've been on the lookout for an existing engine that we can adapt to the needs of vvvvs users.

Enter Xenko: In August 2018, the Japanese developer of game engines and 3d middleware Silicon Studio, decided to opensource the 3d-engine Xenko, they'd been working on for ~10 years. The elegance of the existing codebase and the fact that it is completely .NET based, allowed us to quickly assess that it will be possible for us to integrate it as a library for VL and gain from those 10 years of professional development.

Forward to today: Xenko's main developer Virgile Bello (Xen2), who took on the challenge to run Xenko as an opensource project has moved to Berlin. He now has a seat in our office and we're happy to support Xenko in all ways we can. For vvvv it is in the greatest interest to see Xenko develop as a strong, independent game engine. Because every improvement that goes into Xenko, will soon be enjoyable for every user of vvvv gamma.

And you can support Xenko too: Join their community and/or patreon, read their blogpost of the same announcement and generally spread the word about them. Everything counts!

Previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in August 2019


September,

didn't make it. But it looks quite good for October: We've shown it at recent meetups in Hamburg and Berlin. Ready your patches, because it is here, it is gorgeous and it takes only one click. Executable support is ready and you will be able to test it on your own rather sooner than later. Call it a game-changer or just another thing you didn't ask for. Either way, no need to pray, it is going to stay. Watch this space.

But first! We decided with vl being in quite good shape now, we're going for a beta39 release. It will come with one of the longer awaited features: an installer that takes just a few clicks to get vvvv beta up and running, including the addonpack! Expect a release candidate on one of the earlier days of this already new month.

Our first round of short and long vvvvorkshops on gamma went smooth. So smooth in fact, that we're going to continue with them. We already have the dates for the upcoming free introductions announced and we'll soon add six dates for full-day workshops before end of the year:

Upcoming dates

And one more: Teaching Patching - a mini conference: Please forward this to anyone who could be interested in helping us improve education of and with vvvv. If you have experience, we'd like to here from you! Come join us for 2 days of cozy talks and help us position vvvv for the years to come!

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

Here's to announce that we're continuing our free introductory workshops, to give you a taste of what it feels like to work with the all new vvvv.

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

Where Escape, Strada Pictor Ion Zaicu 26, 300254, Timișoara, Romania, Romania

We're happy to visit the co(art) festival in romania!

A 4-day event for artists who are using technology to push art in innovative directions and tech passionates who want to get involved in creative/artistic areas.

The event will host workshops, bringing together a mixed team of developers and artists, and will culminate in a public exposition where participants can showcase their projects to a general audience.
https://coart.ro

Our workshop is titled: Afraid of coding? Try visual programming with vvvv!

In this workshop, we'll be introducing you to the visual programming environment vvvv gamma. If you've always wanted to create interactive games, installations or presentations but the coding it involves just doesn't feel right for you, then give vvvv a chance.

Instead of writing code, vvvv is using a more visual paradigm that doesn't involve lines of abstract text and therefore may be more appealing to you. But make no mistake, this is still serious programming. In the end, you can achieve the same results as with traditional programming.

After introducing you to the very basics of drawing and animating 2d primitives, we'll be talking about your ideas to find out what you're most interested in creating. From there we'll be showing you what you need to achieve your goals!
