Calling all creative coders, 3d modelers, game developers, hardware hackers, new media artists, frontend devs, motion graphics animators, musicians, illustrators and anyone else across the creative technology spectrum. We're hosting monthly meetups with short talks from a diverse set of professionals, educators and enthusiasts on a wide range of tools and theories behind our multidisciplinary crafts. Come expand your mind and meet your fellow high-tech creatives.
We realized there are so many amazing people doing amazing things with creative technology in Colorado, but no official community to connect them. We're hoping to fill the gaps and build some bridges to learn about new techniques, get inspired, and meet potential collaborators.
Denver Creative Tech returns for yet another round of innovations, experimentations, and applications. This month's meeting will be at Syntax Physics Opera on Wednesday the 29th, and brings together a wide range of specialties to explore ever more creative ways to use technology.
As always, we are looking for exhibitors to show off their successes and failures, to inspire the larger community. If you have a project to share, we'd love to hear about it.
