Chris does vvvv patching since 2004, codes in c# and HLSL and runs the studio wirmachenbunt. Apart from that, he teaches vvvv at the Muthesius Academy of Arts Kiel since 2006.
Gloria does vvvv patching since 2014, codes in c# and HLSL and works for wirmachenbunt. Apart from that, she teaches vvvv at the University For Applied Sciences Hamburg.
Both did a number of projects using Automata UI as well as chris is the author of the software.


Nice one. Anyone that does complex patches and is not familiar with stare machines should do this.


Does this workshop include some background or kind of basic rudiments for devvvveloping on C#?


sorry nope, this workshop is about statemachines. a c# plugin workshop is better suited to learn how to code c# in vvvv. i’m sure there will be one. joreg ? elias ? woei ?
