OK! Join us to Celebrate Art, Code, and Diversity

OK! Transmit is pleased to announce Processing Community Day (PCD), a day to celebrate art, code, and diversity, held in Tampa Bay and communities worldwide.

During this 3-hour (evening) event we will introduce the concept of creative coding; demonstrate how artists are employing code in their work; and then conduct a workshop for getting started using p5js!

Bring your Mac, PC, Linux laptop and come explore artistic expression using computational media and creative coding.

You can learn more about it here:

Can't wait to see you there!

*******************************************

AGENDA FOR THIS MEETUP

1. Introduction to OK! TRANSMIT

2. Introduction to Creative Coding with Processing

3. Getting Started with Processing/P5JS

4. Making your first P5 Sketch!

5. Techniques for Drawing with Code and Making Interactive Media

6. Open Time to Socialize and Explore

*******************************************

WHAT TO BRING

Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer in order to work along with shared examples.

NOTE: The workshop is designed for those with no knowledge of on creative coding with p5js. However, some computer literacy and familiarity with coding is helpful. Due to time constraints and the inevitable range of experience we have in our group, demonstrations may move at a pace that seems fast. If coding is completely unfamiliar, please do not become discouraged. This material will be unfamiliar for many, and will require additional time in exploration on one's own time after the event. We will try to make it as accessible as possible during the time we have and provide pointers for learning the materials on your own afterward.

*******************************************

Be sure to RSVP + BRING YOUR LAPTOP!
