This workshop will encourage participants to think about ways of physically representing data or data combinations. How can data be experienced, felt or tasted? How does this experience change how it is understood?
This workshop will focus on developing provocative/artistic approachesthat create an experience relating to the meaning of the data rather than its production as beautiful abstract visualisations.
Tega BHow does a quantitative analysis of your social life compare to your intuitive impression of it? Analyze your own recent social behaviours by creating a data visualization of your social interactions using data stored by your smart phone. This workshop introduces data vizualization techniques for analysing your relationships using Processing.
Le WThis session will focus especially on relationships (relationships in general not just relationship relationships) and how to visualize their evolution over time. Could be from a variety of sources, not just phone - social networks, foursquare (just found this cool thing today http://alongside.co/)
Learn the basics of getting OF running on RaspberryPi. We'll go through the steps of setting up the Pi, installing the ARM-ready release of openFrameworks, and compiling projects on the RaspberryPi, as well as talk about the strengths and weaknesses of the Pi as a platform for OF projects. What types of projects are well suited to running OF on the RPi? We'll finish by writing a small OF application that uses video input and outputs audio.
Text, Context, and Algorithmic Meaning
Intro to the OuLiPo followed by a discussion related to generative design, data visualization, and the 'potentials' of code. We'll look at examples of Oulipian constraints, along with some produced texts, and develop some of our own constraint-based exercises, both on paper and in code.
Use the commandline to create new connections and artwork. Class will start out with some interesting examples, history and theory. Students will then create programs that read from stdin and write to stdout, and create one giant program that does...something fun.
Le WJonathan Dahan - I (Le) would be interested in helping you with this! More people need to know how to use command line >:)
openFrameworks is a cross-platform tool which means it not only can build apps for our laptop, but also can build mobile apps for our phone and tablet. In this workshop, we will learn how to use OF to build our first mobile app on iOS.
In workshop, we will walk through all basic knowledge about building iOS apps with OF, such as setting up iOS development environment, using multi-touch, coding first iOS game and exploring openFrameworks iOS addons.
We are looking for all OF enthusiasts to join us.
OTHER WORKSHOP IDEAS
1) Games for teaching and learning computation. Developing analog pedagogical tools for teaching programming
^^^ Games for learning/teaching programming - maybe this could be incorporated in the above. So we do a couple of exercises developing games for teaching

@Mini - You mentioned you want to help with data viz, want to help with this one? :)
