WHAT IS ROTTERDAM CREATIVE CODING MEETUP?

ROTTERDAM CREATIVE CODING MEETUP is a group for anyone interested programming, patching or soldering. We focus on all creative applications of technology. We organize informal events where you can meet and share your interests. The group is open to anyone no matter your experience. It doesn't matter whether you are a professional or a tinkerer in your garage/bedroom. Even if you have no experience but are simply interested, you are always welcome to join.

WHAT IS CREATIVE CODING?

You could say creative coding is a type of computer programming where rather than trying to create something functional, you create something expressive. It could be visuals, art, design, sound, robots, installations, or whatever. We don't really care, it doesn't have to be computer programming, it could be electronics or something else tech-y. It doesn't even necessarily have to be expressive, as long as it's something interesting.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

If want to learn more about creative coding you should come to one of our meetups ;). But here is a nice list of tools to get you started:

Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam

V2_Community, in collaboration with Open Hack, Service Design Meetups & Creative Coding Rotterdam presents a series of all day themed hackathons with the name "Hacking_...". During this first edition the theme is PLAY and we mean it in the broadest sense. Whether you are an artist, a hacker, a philosopher, an architect, a gamer or a kindergarten teacher, you are invited to join and explore the theme PLAY with us during this day. We will divide into groups and put our brilliant minds together to think of new projects, programs & initiatives to make our community, city and digital platforms more playful. We will spend the day "hacking" and in the evening we hold a public presentation of the work that was produced during the day and celebrate our progress with a few drinks.

PROGRAMME:

10:00 coffee and tea
10:15 introductions, short pitches of ideas/plans for the day
11:00 - 18:00 hacking (bring your own lunch, or buy it around the corner)
19:00 presentations

Join on facebook, meetup.

Just like last time, we'll have some 'show and tell' sessions. We invite you to do a short and informal presentation where you show us something and talk about it. You could show: A (crappy) prototype/demo you've been working on, something you're proud of or a problem/bug you need help with.

There will be some short informal talks/conversations by interesting people. That's you! Let us know if you have something to share. You could show your (unfinished) projects, talk about some interesting technology, or maybe you have some nasty bug you need help with. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or long. Afterwards there will be time to chat, drink and connect with each other.
