Beyond ASCII: the Art of Code, the Code of Art. This month, we have two speakers working at the intersection of code and art.


Artsy (
Daniel Doubrovkine, Head of Engineering (Linkedin)

Artsy is an online platform for discovering, learning about, and collecting art. Their collection comprises 100,000+ artworks by 18,000+ artists from leading art fairs, galleries, museums, and art institutions. 

According to Wired, Artsy "has the potential to introduce each buyer to a wide range of artists and artworks, all of them related in some way and—this is key—most of them unknown and otherwise inaccessible to any but the most knowledgeable connoisseurs."

Shimmeo (
Bjorn Roche, Co-Founder (Linkedin)

This is the world premier and first public demo of Shimmeo, a new app that automatically edits together a finished music video for the user, given a song and video footage.

Bjorn will discuss the inner workings of the app, as well as the technical and non-technical challenges the company faces, including music licensing, marketing, and branding.


7-9pm (program will be 7:15-ish to 8:15-ish, the rest will be mingling)
Wednesday, March 12


Free pizza, beers, and other beverages/snacks
