What will attendees of your workshop learn?
This will be a fast-forward vvvv-beginners workshop that builds upon your previous progamming knowledge. You will learn to use VVVV as a programming environment to rapid prototype and create interactive media applications. We’ll explore the UI, core programming concepts in VVVV, how to think in a visual programming language and find connections between the visual and the textual programming world. Several basic example applications will be created from scratch so that after the workshop you can pursue more advanced topic in other workshops.
