Another 'event announcement', you can use it as a shining example in the current discussion about announcements on this list. Sorry that it is all I have to offer. :)



Introduction to Pure Data
with Chun Lee of Goto10

Tuesday 17 July; 10:30am to 4:30pm
Email: training at spacestudios.org.uk 
Cost: £60

Pure Data is a free and open source real-time graphical programming environment used by artists to create a range of visual arts, theatre, dance, audio, installation, performance and media art works. 

Pure Data is ideal for those looking to integrate emergent technologies or new media into their work for the first time, or media artists looking to explore new tools and new ways to combine them in a unified environment. It is easy to use Pure Data to create interactive environments, link animations and sound, control hardware and electronics, stream audio, generate real time visuals and develop interfaces for other programs. 

In this introductory course, participants will learn the basics of Pure Data from scratch on OSX (this knowledge can be transferred to any other operating system). Students will learn what Pure Data is, what it can do, and begin to build simple applications in "patches". Students will also learn to hack existing patches and use help patches to create applications. 

Places are limited to seven, where students will have their own Apple workstations, with an additional three places available to those who wish to bring their own laptops.
