Invitation: on-the-fly cantina

The on-the-fly research group invites everybody interested in live coding to participate in a series of monthly casual video chats. Each session will be hosted by one or more members of the community and will be based around a different question. Rather than focusing on tools and specific programming languages, these meetups will provide a space to discuss aesthetics, meta levels and how we relate to live coding - both as artists and as audience.

The first meeting will be on April 12th with the theme “Now that we have gathered - what should we discuss?”. This will be an opportunity for everybody to meet and share interests, concerns and areas of interest for future discussion. On May 10th we have scheduled: “How alive is a livestreamed Algorave?” - a topic very relevant to our current situation and one that considers the practice of televised live coding in general.

So come join us on the 2nd Monday of each month starting this April and share your ideas and questions on everything you always wanted to know about live coding (but were afraid to ask).

At 8PM CEST follow this link: https://jitsi.hangar.org/ontheflycantina

We follow the code of conduct of the live coding community that can be found at the end of this page.

We are looking forward to chatting with all of you soon! And if you have any further questions or comments let us know also in this thread :).

Anne, Dare, Iván, Luka and Patrick
