Turn your pictures into LEGO mosaics: Live Code with Joe Stanco!

**Sorry for the month delay with the meetup, the organizer is unable to make it to NYC in April and so had to push the meetup to Thursday May 15 at 7pm! Thank you for your understanding.

Hey Everybody,

We're excited to announce our Mid-April Live Code will be led by Joe Stanco, Lead Front-end developer at BuzzFeed! Joe loves LEGO's and is going to show us how to use the browser to convert pictures in LEGO mosaics!

Event Abstract:

Early this year, Harry Heaton got a lot of attention for his Tumblr ( devoted to recreating iconic album covers out of Lego bricks. He generates the images digitally, often by special request. The results were inspiring and Joe was determined to find out if a similar effect could be automated in the browser. In this meetup, Joe will demonstrate how Lego mosaics can be generated using JavaScript libraries for canvas (EaselJS) and image manipulation (Pixastic).

Joe's background:

Joe Stanco has been writing Javascript for 15 years and is currently a Lead Front End Developer at BuzzFeed. He is the author of the Packt video series "Build a Network Application with Node" ( He has extensive experience with canvas, including a personal project enabling users to design and generate fake album covers. In his spare time he volunteers with New York Cares, helping 4th graders build robots using Lego Mindstorms.

As always, we encourage you to bring your laptops so you can follow along with Joe as he live codes!

Also, big thanks to BuzzFeed for hosting our meetup and providing refreshments!

See you soon,

TJ BeMyApp
