[ANN] CNMAT in Boston - Max/MSP/Jitter Summer Workshops

For the first time, CNMAT (the UC Berkeley Center for New Music & Audio
Technologies) presents its popular intensive and immersive Max/MSP
summer workshop in Boston! Just like the workshop hosted in Berkeley
each summer, the workshop is geared towards artists, musicians,
interface designers, and anyone wanting to improve their skills with
Max/MSP/Jitter or learn from scratch. This year's course will take
advantage of the great new features that Max 6 has to offer, so if you
are looking to get up to speed with the latest version of Max, this is
the place to be. The course will be taught by programmers and artists
with a great deal of experience both using and teaching the software. By
the end of the workshop, students should be able to construct
sophisticated, robust patches.

As always, we try to keep our workshop fees as reasonable as possible.
In the past, the morning and evening sessions were priced separately and
would cost over $1000 combined. This workshop combines both for $750.
