▉ ▇ ▆ ▅ Welcome to the creative coding community in Amsterdam!
This event is a collaboration between Creative Coding Amsterdam, TQ, and Ngage Media. It is open to everyone, regardless of experience.
▲ CODING JAM 10:00 – 17:30 (ticket needed)
TQ (tq.co) is a curated tech space in Amsterdam. We'll be working in their event space during the coding jam, so we'll have plenty of room!
Ngage Media (www.ngagemedia.nl) manages a network of big digital screens throughout the Netherlands. You might have seen them in railway stations and in city centres. Some of the screens are equiped with sensors so they can react to their surroundings. Currently Ngage is developing an API that will allow media artists to make apps for these screens and sensors. Basically, they want to help create more cool interactive works to show to the public!
The goal of this coding jam is to work with the beta version of the API, give feedback on it, and develop some ideas and prototypes for projects. There will be a screen present to test out your prototype. If you have a good idea, you can of course then continue talks with Ngage to make a final version a reality, if you'd like to do so. But this is not a competition!
The jam is open to creative coders (all levels of experience), designers, artists, and anyone else who'd like to play around with interactive content for a day.
The morning is split into two tracks: coding beginners can follow a short 'Introduction to Creative Coding' workshop given by CCA, more experienced coders can follow the API specific workshop by Ngage. After, we will join up and make groups based on ideas and interests. And then it's time to make some awesome stuff!
Tickets are free and include the workshops, materials, use of the space, and food & drinks during the day (lunch and snacks). If you reserve a ticket but can not make it after all, please let us know so we can make it available to someone else.
Places for this hackathon are limited!
▲ MEETUP 19:00 – 23:00 (free event, no ticket needed)
Free and open to everyone, as long as we all still fit in the building (and this is also in TQ so there's some serious capacity) ;) The results of the hackathon will be presented during the meetup!
