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

Here we go again. This comes late but better late than never.

Next tuesday we meet again at the lovely retune studios in Berlin and hang out together.

This time we'll have a live performance by longterm vvvv user and visual artist crew kopffarben. They have been long on tour in many cities. Now its time to say hello to the vvvv community and we'll have a look behind the patches.

After a long time of silence, there will also be a glimpse into the future by the devvvvs with short work-in-progress demos of things from the VL roadmap. Namely the state of executable export and tooltips re-imagined.

Still as always, feel free to bring your project/notebook/questions or whatever you want to share with the community. We have space and time for spontaneous discussions and presentations!

Hi!

Since there is still a lot of interest in applications, I am extending application deadline for 2-4 another weeks. We have around 20 people in, so there are only few spaces left! We have some devvvvs on the applications, a lot of vvvveterans, I honestly can not wait for the summer. I am locking in people that applied so far, and will be sending confimation emails soon!

Where Lodge Sisoretne, Dolne Oresany, Slovakia

Hi everybody!
Since I missed meeting the best community this summer, I decided to organize Link summer camp in Slovakia!

Application form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1msDePnoVfAl9gCTMcZvBLj60c57-vGEv-Va9npP4pb0/

I found great place for the camp, 1 hour of public transport from Bratislava.
https://www.facebook.com/sisoretne/

The summercamp is not like an academy or workshop. You are not coming to learn. Here you are coming to share and spend quality time together while bringing forward your developments and ideas for future developments.
Wednesday is arrival day, and Thursday morning we are starting to work on our projects, so you need to be ready by then!
Capacity for guests is 25 people, so some of you unfortunately might not get in.

There will be DIY breakfast table ready for you every day, lunch and dinner cooked so you can patch away.

There will be also night program involving projectors and speakers! You will have opportunity to show off your live patching skills.

Also if you cannot attend for the whole time, join us on the public Saturday.

In a nutshell:

40km from Bratislava
180€ with all food and drinks inclusive
Everybody gets a bed!

When Sat, May 25th 2019 - 13:00 until Sun, May 26th 2019 - 18:30
Where Vzletná, Milady Horákové 56, Prague, Czech Republic

This two-day pilot workshop will introduce you to the secrets of light equipment and principles of visual programming.

Schéma is a new software based on vvvv and VL for controlling audiovisual installations developed in Prague. It allows for simple control of various lights and creating a wide range of animations through a combination of basic building blocks.

I posted more about the software itself in the WIP forum
https://discourse.vvvv.org/t/schema-streamlined-visual-programming-for-physical-devices/17545
Overview also available here http://schema.domj.net/

You will learn how simple it can be to breathe life into various light sources such as classic and smart lightbulbs, moving heads, LED strips or christmas light chains and what kind of equipment is required.

You will also have the option to brainstorm your own building block which will then be implemented in front of the group in the VL visual programming language.

If you’re interested in this topic but don’t have a controllable light of your own to play with, no problem! A simple DIY device for dimming battery powered christmas lights (or other similar light sources) will be offered on the spot. This device can connect to WiFi and communicate with the Schéma system.

This pilot workshop will primarily offer you:

  • Early access to the development version of Schéma
  • Overview of the various technologies you can encounter while dealing with light control at music and theatre venues, audiovisual installations and others (DMX, ArtNET, OSC, MIDI)
  • Overview of the necessary and optional hardware equipment for light control from a PC (DMX converter, MIDI controllers, …)
  • Introduction to the principles of visual programming and dataflow
  • Familiarization with the Schéma system
  • The option to influence future development of the system
  • A live example of using the VL visual programming language

Please prepare the following:

  • A computer running vvvv beta getting started
  • An external PC mouse is recommended

The workshop will be carried out in czech or english depending on the common language of the participants.

The workshop will be streamed online.
