PCD @ Worldwide 2020

Hello PCD Worldwide organizers!
We are back. We have a new website - https://processingfoundation.org/advocacy/processing-community-day-2020.

Please introduce yourself - who are you? Where are you hosting a PCD and what ideas do you have for the event?

Please feel free to pose questions, facilitate discussions, or share ideas with one another under this thread.


I am trying to work out how to do this, Meetup.com is a good way to publicise an event but $50usd for 6 months is a huge pile of money to many people. It’s good to connect and meetup before the main event or to have mine meetups.

What good alternatives are there to let people know about an even.


we know PDE communicates at start for update … with server…
this and at start of https://editor.p5js.org
we could have a

NEWS popup

to reach all active processing users.

just need protection that the feed can not be spammed.

well, that not helps if you want reach passive users / sponsors / general public /
there need the big show what not comes for free.

Hi folks,
It is PCD season. Lots of events all over the globe. Hope you can make it to one. Here is the full list - https://processingfoundation.org/advocacy/processing-community-day-2020.

In my case (for a creative code meetup in Cologne) I asked a co-working space where I’m hosting events to announce events as they already had a meetup account. So it might be a good idea to collaborate with a space which has an account - or simply use other platforms like facebook (although I’m strongly against FB…).


Dear all,

My name is Luke Hespanhol, I am a media artist, lecturer and researcher based in Sydney, Australia. I have been working with Processing for about 10 years, and have used it to implement various art installations and other artworks features in large urban festivals as well as for teaching and research.

I am also the current organiser of the Sydney Interactive Arts Meetup, and plan to organise a Processing Community Day within the framework of our meetup. Any tips or support would be greatly appreciated, as this is the first time I’ll be running an event like that.

Looking forward to many exciting conversations as well as potential collaborations!



Hi Luke,
Glad to head that you are thinking of doing a PCD Sydney. I see that you joined the Slack. Feel free to ask any specific questions on here or there. We will be doing a Google Hangout this week so you can check in person too. Let me know I can do anything to help at the PCD support person from Processing Foundation.

Hi Saber,

Nice to meet you, and thank you for the support! I think I am ok so far, I will start promoting the event from next month. A minor things though would be to fix my email address on the PDC Worldmap website (https://processingfoundation.org/advocacy/processing-community-day-2020), as it has a comma instead of a dot on the final section of the address.

Other than that, all good for now, and I’ll keep in touch here or via Slack.

All the best,
