Code, Arts & Crafts #7

How to work with OSC, UDP, transistors and relays?

Onze workshop op zaterdag keert terug met twee onderwerpen die steeds relevant blijven: hoe laat je
twee computers of softwareprogramma’s met elkaar communiceren en hoe geraken we wijs uit de kleine
componenten die verhinderen dat onze kleine machines oververhitten wanneer we ze aansluiten op 220
volt? Het antwoord is eenvoudig: OSC, UDP, transistors en relais!

Er zal zeker tijd blijven om over jullie eigen projecten te werken.

Processing: OSC and UDP?

Processing is great, but sometimes we feel like some part of a project could be done more easily in PureData. Or we would like, for performances’ sake,  to split the calculations between two machines.
OSC is a data format used to exchange messages between computers and applications. In practice, it allows interoperability between the numerous softwares that support it, including but not limited to the patching classics Max/MSP, PureData and vvvv, music softwares like Reaktor, Logic and SuperCollider, or VJ tools like Modul8. And of course Processing, that could therefore be controlled by a Max patch, or drive a Modul8 mix.

In this introduction, we will explore two Processing libraries: OSC, as well as UDP, the underlying network protocol that allows for similar, but more barren and sometimes more compatible communications.

Arduino: transistors and relays?

What is the difference between transistors and relays when you want to drive some electrical devices (motors,...)? Stephane will answer this question and introduce some basic circuits to build yourself.

Dream Team

Yannick will drive you around his favourite Processing libraries
will teach you some code & eletronic basics for Arduino
will host you and document your most craziest ideas.
