- Workshop: Intro to GITStarts: 7:00 pmEnds: May 23, 2013 - 10:00 pmLocation: 9 Ossington AveDescription: Register here: http://ia-git.eventbrite.ca
Improve your programming productivity by learning the basics of Git! This workshop will teach you how version control systems like Git can help you to be more productive and to collaborate effectively when programming. You will learn everything you need to start using Git to track changes and collaborate with others on your projects. This workshop is for anyone who writes code or markup; the only requirement is familiarity with some text-based programming language.
OK, look, I'll level with you: It's hard to explain why you need to learn Git, but you just have to trust me that it's really important. If you're going to take on large projects that involve multiple coders, or if you're going to share your revolutionary code with the world, then you need to know this stuff. It also makes it easy to update software and code libraries that you're running yourself.
What do I need to bring? You need to bring a laptop computer, and have the latest stable build of Git installed on your machine. You can find it here: http://git-scm.com/downloads. It's OK to be on a Mac or on a PC. The instructor will be teaching on a Mac.
About the Instructor: Miller Peterson is a Toronto-based software developer and musician. His interests include interaction design for musical interfaces, generative art, and software engineering practices.

- Interactive Video in Pure DataStarts: 12:00 pmEnds: May 25, 2013 - 5:00 pmLocation: InterAcces StudioDescription: Register here: http://ia-pd.eventbrite.ca
About the workshop:
In one afternoon, you'll learn how to make interactive, sound-responsive video using a totally free visual programming environment called Pure Data.
Pure Data, also known as Pd, is an open source graphical programming environment. It is frequently used by artists and musicians to create custom digital sythesizers, images that respond to sound and other inputs, or to interface with hardware such as Arduino and midi keyboards.
The big difference between Pd and other programming languages: this tool uses an interface that relies on visually connecting onscreen elements, as opposed to writing out code.
Do I need any prior experience?
Nope! We're expecting that this is the first time you'll be using PureData. You're going to be surprised how far we can get you in a single afternoon.
What should I bring?
Bring your laptop, with PureData downloaded and installed. PureData is an open-source software, which means it's absolutely free! You can get it here: http://puredata.info/downloads
Both Mac and PC are supported. The instructor will be teaching on a Mac.
