Hello, everyone! I’m Woosung Jung, an organizer for PCD Seoul. I work at the Seoul National University of Education where the PCD are going to be planned to be held. I am looking forward to the Organizer’s Kit. I really need those materials or guides for the event. Please share your ideas. Thank you.
Hey everybody! Rune here. With a few other good people, I’m organizing PCD Copenhagen. We’re still figuring it all out, but please shoot ideas for speakers my way if know of any in the region. Thanks!
I’m Alfredo Calosci, a visual and interaction designer based in Madrid (Spain).
I’m writing on behalf of Creative Coding Madrid (formerly ProcessingMadrid - http://blog.processingmadrid.org) where we plan to organise a PCD@Madrid event.
We are an informal group of interest; since 2013 we have organised - quite regularly - workshops and public talks on creative coding, physical computing, generative design, virtual reality, mapping … focusing on openFrameworks, Processing, Arduino, MaxMSP, OpenGL, WebGL, web VR, p5.js, three.js … in different locations / spaces in Madrid including: MediaLab Prado, DIMAD-Matadero, UCM Faculty of Fine Arts, MakerSpace Madrid, CIBALL.
We’re still figuring it out format and dates and we are open to contributions. We will keep everybody updated.
Nice to be in touch !
I just had a chat with Woosung (PCD Seoul organizer) and he asked me if there is a template or material for presentations / workshops (intro to processing, for example). I know that the format of every PCD is open but it may be a good idea for every community to share material by google drive or github so that it can be useful for other communities.
Although there’s not content yet, we made a github organization for PCD Tokyo and we are planning to host our website and workshop material there.
@xinxin is there a guideline about pay for the lecturers / workshop tutors who participate in PCD? How was it for the first PCD at MIT?
I’m Marlus Araujo, organizer for PCD Rio de Janeiro - Brasil. I’m a designer and visual artist, and have been sketching with Processing for about 10 years. I’ve been working with digital interfaces and computer graphics, from websites and data visualizations to projection map and visual experiments with code. Here is my website: http://marlus.com
Since 2010 I’ve been promoting Processing and Arduino workshops. My plan for PCD is organize a Processing Weekend, together with my creative coder community in Rio. I’m still looking for the right place, but the idea is to have some basic workshops (introductory, for processing and p5.js), some thematic workshops and case presentations (datavis, computer vision, generative art, womens in tech), and also some satelite discussions and workshops (introduction to openframeworks, processing and puredata, processing and arduino).
Can I look for sponsors for the event?
Thanks! I’m very happy to be part of this too, yesterday I was giving a workshop on Processing as part of the http://multiverso.cc festival.
Hi Marlus! Thank you for organizing PCD @ Rio. You can certainly look for sponsors for the event. I’m aware of at least a few other nodes who are also seeking sponsorships in their cities.
Hi Naoto, this is a good question. Currently we don’t have a universal guideline for pay that would apply to every PCD @ WW event. But generally speaking if an event receives financial support or charges entry tickets, I would recommend to prioritize providing stipends for the lecturers / tutors before spending the money elsewhere. Both PCD MIT and PCD LA provided stipends to invited conference guests based on an estimated calculation of the time and effort they might put in to create the presentations. PCD LA will be posting our event budget later in the year to show how we allocate our fundings and also to keep our financial structure transparent.
If the event is small, completely run by volunteers and you’re unable to provide stipends, then it should be stated clearly and the organizers should find other ways to create mutual and non-monetary exchange to better support the volunteers.
I’m Federico and I’m writing on behalf of Codice Inutile. We are a no-profit organization based in Italy and we’re trying to plan a PCD in three different cities: Milan, Rome and Bari.
We are a group of people and everyone is contributing to realise a great event. We are using our Slack channel to put ideas together and sort out all the problems and challenges. If anyone in Italy is interested in helping us, he/she is more than welcome!
Hi, नमस्ते(Namaste), はじめまして(Hajimemashite),
I am Abhinav Garule, currently delved into new media studies at National Institute of Design, Gandhinagar, India and organizer of PCD@Gandhinagar. We use Processing in our various New Media Design projects with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Microsoft Kinects etc.
With organizing PCD, I wish to invite new media artists and NID alumnus who worked on Processing to share their expertise and explore learning opportunities at Processing from each others.
Looking forward to organize PCD,
Hello everyone, my name is Winnie Soon and together with Anders Visti, we are the organizer in Aarhus, Denmark. I use both processing and p5.js and taught both before at university. Both Anders and I are artists, and we are very much looking forward to introducing creative coding to wider communities and audiences. We definitely see this as a community outreach event. We will have our first organization meeting next week on PCD and we successfully gather more people to join in the organizing committee as well as helping on the PCD. More info soon.
My name is Leila, from Tuzla (Bosnia & Herzegovina). I am the co-founder of Laboratorium (or Lab ), which is the organizer of PCD2019 in our country. We are happy to be part of the community! Also, happy to get in touch with the rest of you girlz/guyz
Will post also more infos about the event hopefully soon!
@xinxin, thanks for the organizer’s kit! I try to make this accessible to the local community (especially the CoC part) and started to translate to japanese
I hope others can help me so that we can crowdsource the effort. Also I’m sharing it here to spread the idea to translate to languages of each community to make the event successful!
Hi everybody, I’m Gabriel Andrade the organizer of PCD in Quito Ecuador.
I started using Processing during my Masters at ITP NYU , and since them Ive used the software for my visuals, performance and also in exhibit designs.
Currently Im teaching in the Multimedia and Interaction Department of Universidad San Francisco de Quito. I’m organizing with my department, so we can have a space at the University to host the PCD.
Wonderful! Thank you Naoto. I will share this on PF’s twitter to ask for help from the community.
Greetings all, I am organizing a Processing Day at Kutztown University in eastern Pennsylvania, USA where I teach interactive design. Good luck to all!
Hi folks, My name is Lee. I’m working to organize Processing Community Day NYC with a big group of folks. We are organizing on a Slack channel, through Google Docs, and you’re welcome to see our first meeting notes. We are hosting our second meeting in about a week. One idea we are exploring is to have our PCD day be more participatory (workshops, jams, 'thons, performances, exhibit) and less presentation-y.
If anyone is interested in participating in NYC, we started a channel here, though we have been moving to our own Slack.
Hi, All! I’m Steve Graham, leader of the Computer Game Design program in Madison, SD. I’ll be working to host some activities here. Looking forward to getting great ideas from all of you.
I’m Abdur-Rahmaan Janhangeer, PCD organiser for Mauritius. I have not yet worked out everything as just got wind of the event. Looking forward for the day ^^_
I’d like to organize a PCD in Detroit, MI. I talked to my friends at Omnicorp Detroit hackspace, and they are on board. I haven’t had a chance to go through this whole thread, but will soon and will pick the dates.
Edit: Started a thread PCD @ Detroit for the details.
A bit about me: I’ve been using Processing for many years now, and it was my introduction to Java in general. I still use it as my go-to tool for prototyping and general graphics stuff (live visuals, installations, interfaces…) I’m also a member of the above mentioned Omnicorp Detroit hackspace, where I would like to organize the PCD Detroit.
