As a lead up to FITC and as a follow-up to the past year of showcasing creative technologies at CreateInTO we're having a discussion you won't want to miss.
One of the most common questions we receive from people is, "how are creative coding and creative technology being applied commercially?" The rough translation of this for many CreateInTO members is, "I make my living building websites, I'd like to do something else, but I don't see where the opportunities are. If I learn Processing or openFrameworks or Arduino, how can I make money with that knowledge?"
We'll kick off the night with a look at some of the work Dan Zen's been doing at Sheridan to address this very issue. The rest of the night will be filled out by a panel with the following people:
Denis Lirette - Globacore
Patrick Schroen - JWT Canada
Christopher Lewis - SplitElement
Dré Labre - Rethink
Rob Butterwick - Saatchi & Saatchi Canada
Discussion to be moderated by Simon Conlin
Bring your questions for these fine people.

There are also a pair of FITC Toronto tickets up for grabs.
