(Special Pure Data Edition!) Learn to Code with Us @ Crashspace!

This week, we're having a speaker come in to talk about PURE DATA.

From http://puredata.info/: Pure Data (aka Pd) is an open source visual programming language. Pd enables musicians, visual artists, performers, researchers, and developers to create software graphically, without writing lines of code. Pd is used to process and generate sound, video, 2D/3D graphics, and interface sensors, input devices, and MIDI. Pd can easily work over local and remote networks to integrate wearable technology, motor systems, lighting rigs, and other equipment. Pd is suitable for learning basic multimedia processing and visual programming methods as well as for realizing complex systems for large-scale projects.

Interested in learning to code or improving your skills? Join this group, led by our very own Director and professional Software Engineer Michelle Leonhart (@at0mbxmb) every week!

Skill range: All. Total n00bs to professional developers.
Access: Open to the Public. RSVP is not required, but definitely helps us know how many people to plan for. Space is limited, so arrive on time to guarantee yourself a seat!

Rules:
1. Bring your own laptop
2. Don’t be a dick or we will remove you.  We're a friendly bunch and like to keep it that way.

Structure: There is no formal instruction. Once a week we will meet up to work on our projects and help each other out along the way. If you're new, this is a great place to come and get direction and advice from more experienced developers. If you're experienced, let's make some crazy **** together!

While we're here, Crashspace is OPEN, meaning members may come work on their own projects for their own purposes at the same time.

About the Instructor:

Michelle Leonhart is a professional Software Engineer currently working for the company behind the iOS & Android app textPlus.  When not coding for work or fun, she works as a Director of the LA Makerspace, and co-runs the hackerspace Crashspace.  In the past, she has worked with the MythBusters on the Discovery Channel, coached an all-girls FIRST Robotics FTC team, and designed and taught a number of classes, including DIY LED Lanterns for Kids.  She enjoys nerding around, helpings kids be awesome at tech, and encouraging little girls to tell anybody who says engineering isn't cool to go kick rocks.


About the Venue: Crash Space is a hackerspace in Los Angeles, and is part of the growing global hackerspace movement. We are a collection of hackers, programmers, builders, makers, artists and people who generally like to break things and see what new things we can build with the pieces. We meet regularly at our physical location in Culver City.

Crash Space is generally open to members only, but we also do regularly scheduled classes and other events. Our Public Discussion List is open to anyone and we invite you to join and say Hi.  If you’d like to visit Crash Space we have an open house on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
