An Introduction to Pure Data
DorkbotPDX is happy to offer a free workshop as an introduction to Pure Data (Pd).
When: Sunday, November 15th, 2015. 1-5pm
Where: Ctrl-H Hackerspace, 7608 N. Interstate, PDX, OR (map)
Bring: A laptop and headphones
Instructors: Jesse Mejia, Alex Norman, Jason Plumb
In this 4-hour course, students will learn the basics of Pd and will have fun developing foundational Pd patching skills.
Pure Data (Pd) is a free, open-source, community supported data flow language and coding environment with an emphasis on sound, music, and multimedia. It was originally written by Miller Puckette (also the original author of Max/Max MSP) and runs on Linux, Mac OSX, Android, and Windows.
Pd has been used widely in the creation of art -- such as music, sound art, visual art, generative, new-media, and interactive art. Pd interfaces readily with MIDI equipment and many popular microcontrollers.
Beginners are welcome. No prior computer programming or sound programming experience is required!
Students should attempt to install Pd prior to the workshop...but if not, no biggie. We can help with that!
Seating is limited to 20 participants. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Attendees will respect The DorkbotPDX code of conduct and will be asked to donate.
