1  Topics / Education and Teaching / Codasign Arduino & Processing Workshop this weekend in London! on: April 23, 2013, 05:39:26 am
Codasign is a creative technology education company specialising in workshops on hardware and software tools used in interactive media and artwork.

This workshop sees the combining of Arduino and Processing. Processing (http://forum.processing.org/search/workshop) is an environment for people who want to create interactive projects involving graphics, images, animations and video. It's an excellent introductory environment for creative people wanting to get into interactive programming.

Workshop Date:
Saturday 27th April, 11am - 5pm

Where:
SPACE
129-131 Mare Street
E8 3RH London
United Kingdom

About the Workshop
This workshop  is the last in a series which has been introducing people to working with Arduino and Processing, on this day bringing them together to communicate. You'll learn how to use serial communication to pass messages between the Processing and Arduino so that the Processing sketch can be controlled by real world sensors and also trigger things like lights and sounds connected to the Arduino.

What will you do and learn?
You will learn what Processing is and get a taste of what it can do. You will be introduced to computer programming and create desktop applications that interactively generate visuals/images. You will also learn the basics of electricity and circuits and what an Arduino can do. You will work with several sensors like knobs and buttons and actuators like LEDs. You will use an Arduino to translate a real-world action like turning a knob into a visual effect in Processing.

What do you need to already know?
For this session, you recommend that you have already done some Arudino programming and Processing prgramming as it is a bit more advanced. If you are a complete beginner though please say and we'll see if we can facilitate you!

What do you need to bring?
Though not necessary, you are welcome to bring your own computer. If you bring your own computer, download and install the Processing and Arduino development environments.

You may also bring your own Arduino, but we will also have them available to use during the workshop.

What will be provided?
You are welcome to bring your own computer or can use one of the iMacs available in the SPACE Media Lab. If you bring your own computer, download and install the Processing and Arduino development environments.
Tea and coffee will be available during the workshop.

2  Community / Workshops and Events / Codasign Making Interactive Sound Workshops on: March 28, 2013, 12:05:21 pm
We're running some workshops which might interest you. They are 4 interactive sound workshops starting Saturday 6th April, with the last one being Saturday 27th April. There is the option to attend individual sessions or the entire series. Please see details below:

This workshop will give an introduction to working with Arduino, Processing and Max/MSP. No previous programming knowledge or experience with electronics is needed.

About the Workshop
This course will show you how to interface sound, visuals and real-wold physical movements and gestures to create interactive multimedia installations, tools for live music performance or just new ways to make and interact with sound. You can "pick 'n' mix" from the different days or sign up for all four at a discounted rate.

Day 1 will introduce the interactive music environment Max/MSP.

Day 2 will introduce the programming language and environment Processing.

Day 3 will cover hardware sensors along with the microcontroller environment Arduino.

Day 4 will demonstrate how these tools can be made to communicate to create a sonic, visual interactive system that responds to real-world movements and gestures.
See learning.codasign for the course material.

What will you do and learn?
Day 1: Introduction to Max/MSP 6
Level: Beginner
An introduction to the interactive music environment Max/MSP. Attendees will learn how to create customisable interactive music programs to generate soundscapes, record new material or sequence MIDI notes in time.

Day 2: An Introduction to Processing
Level: Beginner
An introduction to the “electronic sketchbook” language Processing. Attendees will learn how to use basic software techniques to create simple graphical interactive programs, manipulating graphics, images and video.

Day 3: Sensors for Sound Control - an introduction to Arduino for music
Level: Beginner
An introduction to the Arduino platform and connecting sensors that detect sound, light and pressure.

Day 4: Interfacing Max, Processing and Arduino
Level: Some experience with Max, Processing & Arduino; the previous sessions will have taught you everything you need to know.
Attendees will learn how to make Max/MSP, Processing and Arduino communicate - allowing them to link graphics to sound generations and physical inputs via sensors.

What do you need to already know?
No previous experience is needed. All sessions will be assuming you are a beginner, with the exception of the last day. It will be assumed that you have learned the content in the previous sessions.

What do you need to bring?
You don't need to bring anything, but may bring your own computer if you would like. Arduinos and components will be provided for use during the sessions.

Price:
1 day workshops (standard ticket) £69
1 day workshops (concession ticket) £62
4 full days (standard ticket) £250
4 full days (concession ticket) £225
